Events

Throughout the year, Park Cameras hold and attend a range of events, both in store and in our education suite. Keep a note of this page for all future events in 2014!


Often referred to as the birdwatchers equivalent of Glastonbury, the British Birdwatching Fair is an event organised jointly by Rutland Wildlife Trust and the RSPB.

Covering the whole birdwatching industry and scene, whilst also supporting global bird conservation, it is the event of the year if you're into birds or wildlife.

A massive range of traders are in appearance, inluding eco-holiday suppliers, bird feed manufactures and of course Park Cameras.

We'll have a range of products and special exclusive show offers, as well as a selection of products for you to try out first hand.

Tickets are available to buy at the Birdfair Website.
