Listed here are events held by BAS and other goldfish societies at which you may see the fish and discuss them, and all aspects of fishkeeping, with the owners.


The BAS Annual Show takes place over the weekend of 4th-5th September 2021, and for the second year running the show will, with regret, be virtual (online) because of the pandemic.

A link may be placed here after the show so that you may watch videos of the various fish that were presented.
