The Show Must Go On

Well the final curtain is coming down on what has been a fantastic Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Made me very proud to be a “Brummie” seeing our “City” look so splendid, and a great diversion from the intensity of the build up to the show.

Thoughts now turn to the final preparations for “The City” on 1st – 4th September. Like all great events it is nothing without participants,. We have over 100 Judges, 80 Stewards, a mountain of helpers all waiting to provide a fantastic show for you, all you need to do is enter, and you have until This Friday 12th August at Midday to enter. Help us make it the Glorious 12th with a bumper entry. We have 181 breeds scheduled, groups for Puppies, Juniors, Veterans and Special Beginners, Breeders Groups and Stakes Classes for Champions, Puppies, Juniors and Veterans and Good Citizens along with Junior Handling and YKC classes, something for everyone. Maybe we can’t offer you this :-
