About the SHC

The aim of The Southern Hamster Club is to encourage the keeping, breeding and exhibiting of all hamster species to standards set by our governing body The National Hamster Council. We aim to promote welfare standards and educate the public on hamster care through our shows and displays.

Our shows are held at hired halls around the South of the UK throughout the year, and occasionally have displays at other events in the area. We welcome members of the public at our shows and you will find a friendly atmosphere and a helping hand with advice on keeping, handling and exhibiting hamsters waiting for you.
