DEFRA lifts bird gatherings ban from today; 23 August 2023, England only.
Shows in England will be allowed from today, but as this announcement has come so late in the year it is difficult to say right now whether anyone will have time to organise any shows before the ban comes back, which it usually does in early November.

As I write this, it is mid June 2022 and bird flu is still rife and causing many deaths of wild sea birds. It seems unlikely at this point that the poultry gatherings restrictions will be lifted any time soon. The next two shows where the EEPC could put on a poultry show if the restrictions are lifted will be Heckington on the last Sunday of July, and Revesby on the first Sunday of August. If these are able to go ahead, I will let LBPS members know by email.
The Horncastle Spring Show 2022, postponed until June, has now unfortunately been cancelled.
Avian flu has been very widespread and persistent this year, and there was no prospect of the restrictions being lifted in time for the planned Spring Show which was to be in April. A new date for the show was set for 12th June, but as poultry gatherings are still banned as at 21st May, the show has had to be cancelled. We are hoping that the Autumn Show will go ahead at the Stanhope Hall in Horncastle on 30th October.
