Boy with rabbitsFinding out about rabbit shows

It is easy enough to find rabbit shows via the BRC (British Rabbit Council) which is the governing body in the UK.  Shows are also listed in Fur & Feather magazine.

Do I have to be a member?

You don’t have to be a member to visit a rabbit show but general entry fees often apply to larger shows or those held as part of a county or agricultural show.

The shows are organised by rabbit clubs but you may be able to enter some classes, for example the pet classes, without being a member.

To enter your rabbit in a show you do have to register in advance by requesting the schedule from the host club and returning it by the due date together with payment for the entry fees.

Don’t buy a rabbit there on impulse

Rabbit shows are not a good place to go to buy rabbits.  Rabbits will often be on sale but unless you’ve really thought through the process of owning a rabbit, there is a risk 0f buying on impulse.  With over 60,000 rabbits given up to rescues each year you don’t want to be part of the problem.
