Global Birdfair 2022

Global Birdfair 2022

Following the announcement from the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust that it would no longer host the British Birdfair, we were delighted to hear that the event will still continue in a new format, location and name. The festival will bring together wildlife conservationists, representatives of nature travel, birders and natural history enthusiasts from all over the world.

Global Birdfair will take place at the Rutland Showground in Oakham over the weekend of 15th to 17th July 2022. The event will be ran as a ‘not for profit’ festival and will support conservation projects with the funding raised.

Tickets are now on sale here.

The cottage itself is a 4 star self-catering cottage, and has one bedroom which can be presented as a super king sized bed or two full sized single beds. The cottage maintains all the charm of an old cottage such as exposed brickwork and timber and an open fireplace, but has all the mod cons such as full central heating, a large flat screen TV with Freeview and DVD, free WIFI, a washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. The cottage welcomes well behaved dogs. All bed linen and towels are provided as well as the kitchen essentials.
