The Heart of England Alpaca Group

Welcome to the Heart of England Alpaca Group

The Heart of England Alpaca Group was created to bring together alpaca owners across the counties of central England. We provide advice, help and learning through workshops, seminars and social events. We’re also proud to organise two of the largest alpaca shows in the calendar, the Spring Alpaca Fiesta at the end of April and the Autumn Fleece Show in October.

In 2015 this “small” Regional group brought you a hugely successful Spring Fiesta Halter Show with 300 alpacas competing for some highly desirable trophies and awards followed by THE LARGEST Fleece Show in Europe - EVER!
So what can you expect in 2016???????????? The organiser’s will not only be repeating this success but extending it, so why not consider joining us and sharing in our success along with that of many other alpaca lovers be they small/medium/large breeders – get your name out there and show your support!!!!!
This is the group’s 8
th halter show having made a successful and popular transfer to Bury Farm Equestrian Centre allowing us to expand presenting a more professional yet fun event for both exhibitors and the General Public alike giving us significant footfall.
It is the ideal opportunity to promote your business, product or service to existing and new customers and visiting public. The show runs over two days with show classes in the International Arena where the public can meet both the alpacas and breeders along with the ‘alpaca agility’ arena which has proven to be great fun and very popular with visitors. There will also be a large trade stand area overlooking the International Arena. The show is promoted country wide and attracts coverage from local media, internet and trade magazines. Last year we attracted breeders from Europe looking for high quality alpacas and we will be promoting the Fiesta widely in Europe again to attract overseas visitors. With anyone involved in the world of alpacas either visiting, competing or involved with the show this is a perfect scenario to raise the profile of your business through various promotional opportunities.
