Royal Bath & West Show
27 – 30 May
The Royal Bath & West Show is England’s Biggest Celebration of Rural Life and England’s only 4 day Royal Show. It’s probably the biggest agricultural show in the country and a great day out in Somerset for families, friends & rural enthusiasts! It is always a great show with lots of enthusiastic people keen to find out about the work that we do to save the lives of ex-commercial hens.

Royal Bath & West Show 2015 update:
What a fantastic four days we had at the Royal Bath & West Show this year…
Our dedicated team of volunteers; Sue, Rob, Miranda, Anne, Matthew, John, Gareth, Naomi and Fiona proved that come rain or shine, a fantastic time could be had by all.
The event went swimmingly, excuse the pun, for which Fiona can most certainly testify for, after a rather soggy start to her day on Friday! Thankfully it would take more that to dampen Fi and the team’s spirit.
Like last year we took along four gorgeous ex-bats, they love meeting you all as much as we do. The girls very kindly laid lots of fresh eggs, which our volunteers sold for a donation each day – talk about hens helping hens.
Over the course of the four days, whilst the p-lucky hens sunbathed and generally had a clucking good time, hundreds of you came to ask questions and find out more info about the British Hen Welfare Trust. As well as talking chicken chatter, our volunteers also worked tirelessly in our pop-up shop, selling out of almost our entire stock. All the profits from shop at events and online at www.shop.bhwt.org.uk go directly towards helping more hens, so your support at events like the Royal Bath & West is invaluable to our work.
But re-homing hens is apparently not the only skills our volunteers have, over the course of the four days, they had not one, but two lost children arrive at the stand. Thankfully Naomi and Fiona were on hand to play mother hen and the kiddies where soon returned to their slightly panicked parents – we think there are definitely worse places to get lost!
Our volunteers and gorgeous hens had a wonderful few days, thank you to everyone who came along to say ‘hello’ we look forward to seeing you all again next year.« Previous Page
