West Midlands Falconry Display Team Ltd can bring along a varied selection of birds of prey to your event. We can either attend for the whole event with a static display and flying demonstrations, or we can provide a shorter attendance by providing a 'drive on' flying display only. 

Static & Flying Displays

We can provide a static display of between 6-9 birds, so people can see them up close and ask the falconer any questions about the birds, and then can perform 2 x 30 minutes or 1 x 45 minute flying displays during the day.

Flying Display Only

Alternatively, our 'drive-on' display offers a cheaper solution where a static display is not required for the whole day; our falconer will arrive at your event 15 minutes before the timetabled flying display, and will then provide up to a 30 minute flying demonstration with approximately 4 birds, followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer session while holding a bird for the audience to see up close. This option is only available for events within 10 miles of The Falconry Centre.

The static display will consist of a varied selection of birds and may include birds such as Harris Hawks, Owls, Falcons and at least one of our Eagles. The flying display consists of Hawks and Owls flying at very close quarters to people and falcons flying at speeds of over 40mph. A commentary is given by the Falconer throughout the display. The birds are used to travelling and attending displays as we attend many events throughout the year.

Along with our static display we may also bring along a selection of bird of prey souvenirs and mementos for event visitors to purchase from us, the proceeds from which are donated to our charity.

The displays are entertaining and informative and our birds are flown to the highest standards. Please complete the form on this page to send us your event enquiry information, or use the Contact Us page.

What we will need:

For the static display we provide our own netting to protect the birds and gazebos to shelter them if necessary. We prefer a quieter area of the showground to sit the birds while resting and preferably with one solid back (trees or hedgerow) and preferably under trees for shade and shelter. We also need to be able to have the vehicle by the side of the static display area. The approximate area needed for a static display is 20 feet by 40 feet.

For the flying display, you will need an arena that is cordoned off (we usually use the arena where you have other events taking place). Use of PA system, preferably with headset microphone, or at least a wireless microphone. (We do have a small portable system ourselves which is suitable for smaller crowds). When completing a booking form once a date is confirmed with us you will be asked if you are able to provide gazebo and PA system - this is so that we know whether we need to bring anything with us.

Please note that from 1st October 2018 anyone breeding or training animals for exhibition or display will be required to have a licence to do so under The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018. The Falconry Centre Ltd. is covered for this as we hold a current Zoo Licence and we have Full Public Liability Insurance. All our birds are legally captive bred. We also have current Animal Transportation Licences.

Private Displays

Our Private displays are perfect for personal events away from our Visitor Centre, such as weddings, birthday parties, and other celebrations. We have various teams of birds at work throughout the year and would not like to guarantee any particular species of bird for your event, but we will bring along a selection of birds from our Owls, Hawks, Falcons and Eagles. The number and size of birds may vary depending on your venue and requirements and we will be happy to discuss this with you. If you have any further questions please Contact Us. If you are looking to bring a group to our Visitor Centre instead, please check out our Group Visits page or our Exclusive Bird Handling Experiences

Promotional Work

If your company logo features a bird or you just want to stand out from the crowd, then we will bring along birds of prey to your stand/exhibition. Imagine an impressive Bald Eagle or a large Eagle Owl, it will soon draw the crowds!

The birds we use are at ease with every situation and have attended exhibitions at the NEC (Birmingham), Elstree Studios (London), ExCel (London), EventCity (Manchester), National Agricultural Showground (Stoneleigh), Scottish Exhibition Centre (Glasgow) and displays in town and city centres.

Please give us a call with your requirements!

 

Corporate Multi-Activity Days

We are able to perform a number of hands-on sessions throughout the day at any venue in the country. We will bring along a varied selection of birds of prey and your clients will be able to experience the thrill of flying them at close quarters. We can adapt the length of our sessions, depending on the durations of your other activities.

In general a session of 30 minutes will consist of an introduction and the flying of a hawk and owl; a 45 minute session will usually be 3 different birds and a one hour session will consist of flying 3 birds, plus the holding or flying of an Eagle (depending on the number of guests per session).
