This show has always proved very popular with breeders from all over the country because of its central location and easy access. The organisers have always concentrated on creating a show where the best alpacas can be shown and breeders can concentrate on showing and promoting their herds and networking with anyone and everyone who has interest in alpacas, both Suri and Huacaya.

The Blackdown Buildings offer breeders the housing for their alpacas which has good airflow and with plenty of space. We do have the option of some heating if the conditions are particularly bad.

The Spring Alpaca Fiesta organised by the Heart of England Alpaca Group is a colour championship halter show run under BAS Show Rules. There will be Sire’s Progeny and Dam’s Progeny Competitions, Large, Medium and Small Breeder Awards and other breeder prizes.

The HoEAG have invested over the years in trophies and awards so there is plenty for breeders to aim for, with the larger awards winners also being presented with smaller mementoes of their win. There is also a cash prize for the herd which, in the organiser’s opinion, have done the most in the layout of their penning area to promote alpacas and their herd in particular.

Depending on entries, we will aim to alternate between Suri and Huacayas whilst judging the various colours. We usually judge the darker colours on the first day and the lighter colours, Supremes, Progeny etc. on the second day.  Breeders do not have to be present on both days; they can bring their animals to the show on the Friday night, Saturday morning or night or Sunday morning. We aim to start judging early and finish early.

All entries are done by the BAS Online Registry and the closing date WILL NOT be extended.
Entries are £22 + vat. If fans are required, they will be charged at £30 per herd (including vat).

The show organiser is as per previous years – Paul Stead – any queries or questions prs.stead@virgin.net or 07776 385544.  New exhibitors are always welcome.
