“The Dog show is one of my favourite areas as the dogs really enjoy taking part. Again it’s just for fun with categories like best legs, but good show ring experience for young dogs, their handlers and the judges!

“The fine foods area and delicious smells from the cookery theatre are a real treat.”

Tickets for the show can be purchased from the box office at Campus West, WGC, on 01707 357 117.
