    This is a great show, Not many shows like this on this year due to the credit crunch. Dev a good day out, We went to the Hampshire show, plenty to see and do, not only for us but our dogs too! Dash & splash fun to watch.

    Have found this where you can enter a FREE Competition to win a pair of tickets to go. competition see here>>> Ends quite soon though.

    Do you have to take part in an activity to be allowed in. I don't think Bess would want to do anything, but she loves a day out. So would we have to take part in something?

    Also my dad and brother have a show them two days at sandringham for livingheriatge! I am torn as to which one to go to!

    No you can just wander around, watch the displays, visit the stands, spend loads of money on doggy stuff in the trade stands and have a really good day out!
