SHOWS FOR MICE AND RATS
Fancy Mice have been exhibited in Britain for more than 100 years. The Fancy started in the East End of London in the 1890's. The interest spread to the North of England where it became very popular in the mining communities. The National Mouse Club lays down the standards by which mice are judged.
Fancy Rats have been exhibited in Britain for almost as long as Fancy Mice. They became very popular in the 1970's when the National Fancy Rat Society (NFRS) was founded.
Why Fancy? Fancy is an old English word meaning a hobby - particularly a livestock hobby.

Other small livestock
We are a mouse and rat club, but we do sometimes have other small livestock at our shows. Gerbils are one example we have had in the past. We hope to have hamsters in the future.
Do you run a small livestock club - exotic rodents etc? If you want to put on a show in conjunction with our popular shows then contact us.
