The show also had an international flavour to it when a family from Finland visited the show in the afternoon while they were on a week’s holiday in London. They are budgerigar fanciers themselves but in a small way.

As part of the Society’s 75th Anniversary celebration there were bespoke coloured ceramic beakers on offer to the 14 colour winners in the specialist & rare variety show and special glass trophies for the section winners in the young stock show. The judges received their ceramic beakers as well.
