About the Shows

Our National Breeders Meetings were set up to enable IHS members and members of FBH affiliated clubs and societies to buy and sell their surplus animals and offspring. Members are also able to sell their redundant / unwanted hardware.

Traders are in attendance selling a complete range of dry goods, equipment and feeding stuffs / supplements. Also available is a range of invertebrates and amphibians and complete bio-active set-ups.

The IHS have a stand where you can buy our merchandise and if a non-member you can join the society on the day.
