Performing Animals

If you exhibit, use or train performing animals you need to register with us. This includes the use of animals in stage performances, at circuses and as part of an exhibition.

The Performing Animals (Regulation) Act 1925 does not apply to the training and exhibition of animals for bone fide military, police, agricultural or sporting purposes.

Police and local authority officers including a vet, have the power to enter premises where animals are being trained and exhibited. If cruelty and neglect is detected, magistrates' courts can prohibit or restrict the training or exhibition of the animals and suspend or cancel the registration granted under the Act.
