The term “exhibit” is defined as “exhibit at any entertainment to which the public are admitted, whether on payment of money or otherwise…” and to “train” means “for the purpose of any such exhibition”.

Registrations must contain details about the animals and the performances they are to take part in.

It is important to note that, if any circumstances change, such as the number of animals you keep or types/species, you will need to contact us to advise us of this change.
