BKKS National Koi Show

BKKS National Koi Show 2013

at the heart of koi keeping




The BKKS National Koi Show has reinvented the traditional koi show dinner & dance, into a modern exciting evening of entertainment.


For 2017 we are once again holding a Show Party, and it will be held on Saturday 24th June 2017, at the Best Western Plus Manor Hotel, Main Road, Meriden, West Midlands, CV7 7NH, which is just 3 miles from the showground.



We have a fantastic night planned. As the Windmill Village Hotel was fully booked for our weekend, the party has been moved to the Manor hotel, which is a beautiful space, fully equipped with everything we need to have a fantastic party; there will be good food, great music, and excellent company. 


We are pleased to announce that Russ Williams ~ Award Winning Comedian ~ After Dinner Speaker ~ Charity Auctioneer ~ will once again be at the Show Party. Since his introduction in 2013, as part of our new-style show party, Russ’ sense of humour has become a fixture at the National, along with his improvised 'double act' with Mike Snaden. You can find out more about Russ on his website: 



We will also, just like previous years, be holding an auction of stunning koi, the proceeds of which will go towards securing the future of the BKKS National Koi Show. Many people held back from bidding last year, but were then surprised by just how low the winning bids were - don't miss out this year. Photographs of the fish will shortly be available on the Show website, and the koi will be on display at the Show on Saturday. People not attending the Show Party will still be able to submit bids, just send your bid in a sealed envelope to The Treasurer (see website), so that they do not miss the opportunity to win one of these stunning koi, but by being there, you will be in the best position to potentially grab a bargain!

Due to popular demand this year we are again including table sponsorship. For £50 + vat you can sponsor a table, if you provide a logo we will print it and put it on a stand on your table, ideal for dealers who wish to show their appreciation for their customers, you can sponsor a table and invite your customers to the party, there are ten places per table.
