We havent decided the species but it will include some spectacular and rare species.

There will also be venomous snake videos and talks.

Come say hello and make this a great day out!
Looking forward to it! Should be even better than last year with lots more to see and do - much better input from more and more big players in the North of England! Will be financially good for the North East IHS branch too, combining this with the joint meeting at Doncaster the future is looking bright for us!

Do you have to be a member of I.H.S to go? I tried registering online and was told it would need approved by the mod first but heard nothing since.

Also do you need to pay for the show?

Many Thanks

No you dont need to be a member of the IHS, everybody is welcome - although members do receive an entry discount! There is an admission fee (which slips my mind to be honest at the moment, but is very inexpensive) - its a great day out and was very popular last year. The show has much more to see and do this year in comparison to last year with much more in the way of exhibitions, showcases and suppliers of equipment and the likes. Look forward to seeing you there!

Sounds great! Hopefully the Mod of the I.H.S website will approve my registration before the show.

What is the admission fee?

Default Full details for the show

Admission is £2 non-members, £1 IHS members, under 14’s admitted half price - includes entry into one class for one animal. 50p per animal entered per class there onwards. All proceeds to go into IHS branch funds, of which some will help in the fight in our right to keep exotic animals.

Show starts at 10am. Registration should be now for the first hour. All entries must be submitted no later than 30 minutes before judging for that class commences. There will be eight judging areas (three for snakes, three for lizards, the remaining two for the remaining classes) to allow for organisation, all in the main hall. All judging to follow IHS protocol set out by the late John Foden.

Three awards – 1st, 2nd and 3rd for all classes. 50p for each entry (after the initial free entry included in the admission fee) in all classes excepting the novelty classes, these are free.

The judges decision is final, on all matters.

Lizards to be no larger than 1m in length (total) and snakes at 3m in length.

Strict hygiene protocol required throughout. Animals to be kept in a secure enclosure, made of clear plastic – along the lines of a Faunarium plastic tank or similar. Alcohol wash, wipes and gloves for any required handling – of course handling will not be usually required nor encouraged.
