LGFL are delighted to be supporting our local agricultural show this Bank Holiday weekend, on Sunday 27th and Monday 28th August 2023. We're sponsoring two classes at the popular Swallowfield Show Dog Show for the most Fabulous Fella and Lovely Lady.
In line with our family law firm's commitment to diversity(!), all dogs are welcome to enter our sponsored classes - pedigree, crossbreed, rescue, and best-mixed! There's prizes and rosettes for the winners, and lots of chances to enter with two sessions of judging on both Sunday and Monday, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
So, why not enter your own pampered pooch or crazy canine and win a prize! No pre-booking required, but do make sure you're there in good time. The dog show is a really popular part of the Show and the numbers of entries are somewhat limited by the size of the rings!
Entries will be taken from 10am, with morning judging starting at 11am and afternoon judging from 2pm. Entry costs just £2 per class, but no dogs under the age of 6 months can enter.
Not sure if your dog would want to stand still for that long? Have a go at Temptation Alley and discover if your dog loves you more than toys or treats! You simply call your dog and see if they come to you straight away, or via the tasty plates or exciting toys. All successful dogs win a prize, and you can enter as many times as you like for just £1 a try.
Why we're supporting the Swallowfield Show<
As lawyers, we spend our days helping families through difficult times. In turn, we passionately believe in supporting the wider family we all belong to - our community. Supporting local community initiatives and organisations such as the Swallowfield Show fits with our core values of care and professional responsibility. It's also lovely to see families having fun together, enjoying a traditional day out that celebrates the talents of their community too.
LGFL also support various charities throughout the year, dividing our donations between local charities such as food banks and sporting team, and national charities including Free a Girl, Save the Children, the NSPCC, Royal British Legion, Jeans for Genes, Smalls for All and more.
And, of course, we love our dogs (and cats) here at LGFL, including Rita's Lovely Lady Havanese and Gill's Fabulous Fella Labrador! (We also know from years of family law experience how much separating couples struggle over who gets the dog - see our blog here.)
What's on at the Swallowfield Show
The Swallowfield Show calls itself "Simply the Best Show in the South of England". Each day, the show is jam-packed with exciting things to see and do, including gundog and falconry displays, vintage cars, and the Tigers Motorcycle Display Team in the main arena.
The kids will love the Activity Zone where they can race go karts, learn circus skills, meet huskies and enjoy the funfair. Buy lunch from the Food Hall and relax on the Village Green with live music, admire the exhibits in the horticulture, and shop for unusual gifts in the craft tents. And all for just £10 a ticket.
How to find the Swallowfield Show
Swallowfield is really easy to find from Junction 11 of the M4 and other major routes, and is fully AA signposted from the M4. Best of all, there is free parking on site for thousands of cars - just follow the signs.
