50 years of Glastonbury to be theme of this year's event
There is a pop festival feel to the fancy dress competition this year
The 16th annual Chiswick House Dog Show is making a welcome return to Chiswick House grounds after a Covid related absence.
Sponsored by John D Wood, there will be the usual raft of surprise celebrity judges present (in previous years these have included Michael Ball, Mel Giedroyc, Ant McPartlin, David Tennant, Callum Woodhouse, Wayne Sleep, Neil Dudgeon, Richard Lintern).
It is taking place on Sunday 26 September from 11am to 4.30pm on the cricket pitch. The entrance to the show is via the Staveley Road gate.
The show is run by a team local of volunteers for the enjoyment of the whole community - the aim being to raise money to maintain and improve Chiswick House grounds.
It’s a (free) fun day out for all the family – and you don’t have to own a dog to come along and enjoy it.
Classes range from Prettiest Bitch to My Dog’s Got Talent, and from Best Groomed to Best Veteran. There will also be the usual range of puppy classes – for all those people who have added a new pet to their home in the past year.
It costs just £4 to enter a dog into a class. Registration is online this year.
Last year would have been Glastonbury Festival's 50th year, so as it was impossible to celebrate anything much in 2020, the organisers are continuing with the same theme this year - 50 years of Glastonbury. Those entering the Fancy Dress competition (for adults/dogs/children) please take note.

As well as a beer and wine bar, there will be the usual range of food stalls. And another 50 or more stalls provide the usual eclectic range - pet portraiture, canine charities, local artists, dog treats, RNLI, and every form of dog accessory imaginable. And the ever-popular Chiswick House & Gardens’ produce cart will be in prime position.
It takes over 150 volunteers to run the Dog Show, so if you would like to volunteer to help (for just a couple of hours), register via the website or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
