The British Homing Pigeon World Show of the Year

History of the show

The British Homing World Show of the Year was conceived back in 1972 when the then RPRA General Manager Len Lewis came up with the idea of a national pigeon show. With the assistance of fanciers in Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire a show was put on in 1973 at the Doncaster racecourse complex. It was decided at the time that if any profit was made it would be given to charity. One of the stewards had a granddaughter who suffered from spina bifida and so, after the first show, a donation was made to the Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (ASBAH). The show continued at Doncaster until 1977 when the Federation Colombophile Internationale asked the RPRA to host the international Olympiad. The size of the show meant that the committee had to find a larger venue and so the show moved to the Winter Gardens at Blackpool where it has remained.
