Our Dog Show is back!

After a very popular first show last year, our Dog Show returns and will take place on Bank Holiday Monday, 6th May. It will be take place in Waterloo Park, on the grass area in front of the café. 

We have listened to your feedback and this year we have more classes and there is space for 80 dogs to take part. You can book your dog's place in advance too if you wish.

There are 8 classes in all (see list below) and in each there can be up to 10 dogs. 

The top 3 dogs in each category will receive a rosette and a certificate. ​The winning dog in each category will go forward to the Best In Show class and the winner of that will receive a trophy to keep. 

This is a fun event, and we hope you, your family and friends will enjoy it as well as your dog.

By taking part and using our café you will be supporting The Feed's work in Norwich which helps people to eat well, live well and feel connected.

The main event sponsor for the Show is Top Dog Harnesses who are kindly providing a harness, collar and lead set for each of the 8 category winners.


The cost is £2.50 per entry and each dog can only take part on one category so as many dogs as possible can be part of the Show. 

There are two ways to book a place in the Show:

  • We have allocated 50% of places for advance registration. To book a place for your dog, email dogshow@thefeed.org.uk and we will send you a form to complete. It's first come, first served until these advance places are booked up.

  • The remaining 50% of places will be available to book on the day of the Show from 9.00-10.00am. You will be able to register with our team who will be outside the café. Again, these final places are first come, first served.
