Think Parrots Show returns to Kempton Park Racecourse

The Think Parrots Show and exhibition, which is now in its 7th year, will be taking place at Kempton Park Racecourse, Staines Road East, Sunbury-on-Thames, Middlesex, TW16 5AQ, on Sunday 10th June 2018, 10am to 5pm, and will include three free Masterclass sessions, delivered by top avian experts, as well as free-flying bird demonstrations by a top UK bird trainer and a microchipping special offer by a well-known avian veterinarian.

The event, organised by Parrots magazine and sponsored by Northern Parrots, is aimed at dedicated parrot owners, who are eager to improve their knowledge, and brings together a wide range of parrot enthusiasts including pet owners, hobby breeders, conservationists, avian vets, and the UK’s top parrot experts, as well as an extensive range of exhibits and product displays.

Show organiser John Catchpole said: “Think Parrots 2018 continues to show the ever growing interest in the importance of essential care and understanding for all parrots and parakeet species, whether companion or aviary birds.


"With many visitors bringing their own birds, there will be lots of quirky things going on. Masterclasses have proved to be of great value with continuing high attendance and the many positive comments that are received from those who have benefitted from listening to the expert speakers.


"Also for the first time this year, we are offering a microchipping service by well-known avian vet, Alan K Jones MRCVS. Plus free-flying bird demonstrations by top UK bird trainer, Mike Simmons. And all this for just £10 admission.”

The details of the free Masterclass sessions are:
·      11am-12pm       Malcolm Green                   Supplements and diet
·      1pm-2pm           Steve Brookes                    Spotlight on Eco-tours
·      3pm-4pm           Rosemary Low                   Behaviour in Nature and Home
Room for all, but pre-booking helps us plan.

Entry into the show costs £10 on the day or for ‘early bird’ advance tickets, £9 per person.
