Dogs at a Music Festival?

This isn't just a dog show, its a DOG FESTIVAL and nowhere is off limits to the pooches. With some of the UK’s best tribute bands performing alongside a full line up of non-stop music across the weekend. So kick back as the sun goes down, grab a cold drink with friends and pooches and enjoy the party.

2021 will bring you more shops so you can treat your dog or yourself to top of the range accessories and bling. Treat stalls, dog toy pop up shops and an array of harnesses to choose from as well as doggy lotions and potions that you won’t find on the high street plus, many more, including a new producer section with all the human treats you could wish for, you will be spoilt for choice.

We have lots of stalls where you can get expert advice on training, obedience, how to foster/adopt a puppy as well as free doggy MOT’s. We have a host of specialists waiting just for you and your dog.
