    Hi there,

    In the showing part you just pass the ferret to the judge who will examine it and award rosettes to the best ones. Simple as that.

    However, we're also doing ferret racing this year, which should be good fun! The race down tubes and often, much to the annoyance of the owner they have a good sniff about before deciding to come out the other end!! It's just for fun though.

    Hi there,
    Ask as many questions as you like!
    we usually have at least six or so ferrets in each class and no, you don't need any experience. Ours is a very friendly show and we have wonderful prizes. There's always someone about who can help you or show you what to do if you're unsure. It's all good fun and you can share a chat with new friends and it's all for charity!

    Hi there,

    All classes are £1.00 and you can enter as many as you like (as long as you're eligible for them - ie, not much point in entering a class for silver ferrets with a white one etc, well I suppose you could enter, but you probably won't win - although there are so many prizes and consolation przes, you might do!!)

    There's no entrance fee to get into the showground, but there is a very small charge for schedules instead... There's a few stalls and things to do, but mostly it's about the dogs and the ferrets!
    Hope you can make it - 18th July in case anyone has seen the wrong date prrinted in a paper...

    Not really... We've got a marquee and a few gazebos and there's a toilet/shower block - I suppose they all provide temporary shelter if there was a shower, after which the show would go on!

    Hi,

    Last year we used a fella who came from derbyshire. I'll PM you his number, but it'd be a long way for him to come!! He might know someone who can help you though.
