Welcome to the home of The National Tan Rabbit Club. This club is affiliated to the British Rabbit Council (BRC), and is a club of enthusiasts dedicated to the Showing, Breeding and Promotion of Tan Rabbits at Shows all over Britain (and beyond). Shows occur most weekends, and occasionally in the week, especially at County and Agricultural Shows in the summer months, for all rabbits up and down the country. This is a hobby that brings exhibitors of all ages together in a social environment with competitions to try and win your breed or section, as well as then potentially progressing to compete against other tans (or breeds of other rabbits as well), to try and achieve the goal of Best in Show.
Many breeds and colours of rabbits are shown by exhibitors, just for their Promotion and Development, or to avoid the breed / colour from dying out. Tan rabbits come in 4 colours, with the Black Tan and Chocolate Tan contributing to the largest numbers of exhibits shown, and primarily taking nearly all Best in Shows. The Blue Tan and Lilac Tan are kept and bred, however, and shown by the dedicated few. Tan Rabbit Shows also occur throughout the Year, via National Tan Club Shows, together with the Regional Tan Clubs Shows (see link above).
