Good Shws in the UK, are there any?

Hi,

I have recently returned to the hobby of fishkeeping, now that the kids are a little older and I find I have saved enough for a good tank and good fish.

I would like to ask if there are any large Fishkeeping events in the UK, similar to the ideal home show for example...but for fish.

I would also like some advice on a good UK Discus club I could join. I live in the north east of England (near Newcastle) so a local club would be even better.

The Festival of Fishkeeping is the biggest UK event held every year in Hayling Island, normally over the bank holiday weekend in October.

I went last year as Practical Fishkeeping magazine's "Ask the Expert" on high-tech planted tanks.

There were loads of great discus as well as other show fish i.e koi, bettas, goldfish, various tropicals.

Not so good for plants though.

The UK Discus Association is good I believe. I may join myself soon as I'm setting up a 6x2x2'.

Are there fish to buy at the Festival of Fishkeeping or is just a show?
