Preparations are now underway for the 2021 event and whilst there is a degree of uncertainty we are working, for now, on the understanding that a full programme will be running. We will keep you updated here as we get closer to the show dates.

British Fly Fair International 2021

Following the government announcement 22nd September 2020 concerning Covid lockdown there has been speculation concerning the effect on BFFI 2021. We do not know how/if the show may be affected.

The team will continue to plan for 2021 until we have a definitive answer from government and/or the venue as to whether we can proceed. We will make our final decision by the 30th November based on that advice at the time and make an appropriate announcement.

If a definitive answer can be made prior to the above date we will make the appropriate announcement as soon as reasonably practicable. It may be that we can proceed with some adaptations and/or extra precautions which we will consider on a practical/business basis and proceed accordingly.

Thank you for bearing with us and rest assured, we will prevail!


New for 2021: Junior Fly-Tying Lessons

If you are a budding fly tyer or know one, we’ve got a treat for you!

Our very own Liam Walsh of Tyers Row fame will be offering lessons in ‘How to tie your first fly’. As a Science teacher, Liam is well placed to pass his considerable knowledge onto those aged 16 and under, wanting to learn the art of Fly-Tying in small comfortable groups. All equipment will be provided and lessons are free! Lesson times will be on both Saturday (13th) and Sunday (14th) at:

10.15,  11.15, 13.45 and 14.45

If you would like to book a place, just send a message to stating the name of the student, day and time preferred. Places are limited, so book to avoid disappointment although if spaces are still available, you may be able to book on the day.
