New Address Cockatiel


TP2020 Cancelled

After many weeks’ consulting and discussing all possible options with our sponsor, the venue and others, we are sorry to announce that Think Parrots 2020 event will not go ahead any time this year.

The decision has not been taken lightly, the safety and welfare of everyone involved, and for everyone visiting is of the upmost importance. This coupled with the fact there has been no change in the government’s guidelines on public events.

On behalf of Parrots magazine (the organisers), Northern Parrots (the show sponsor) I would like to thank you for your support to Think Parrots. Plans are already in place for Think Parrots 2021, as long as we’re back to some normality.

Like many other businesses, we are continuing to work remotely, while considering the safety of everyone to maintain production of Parrots magazine.

I hope you, your colleagues and families are keeping safe and well.

Kind regards

John Catchpole

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

coronavirus heading

Following government advice, and to ensure we continue to maintain our duty of care to protect our customers and members of staff, Parrots magazine is now operating a robust continuity plan that enables us to work remotely, which we are reviewing on a daily basis. This means it is business as usual.

We hope all our readers, and their birds, keep safe and well, and hope we will quickly get to the end of this unprecedented difficult period.

Your team at Parrots magazine.
