We are delighted with another impressive entry of over 10,000 dogs and hope to once again demonstrate that we are 'the society that listens to our exhibitors'

There will be plenty of FREE PARKING for exhibitors and spectators alike. We would ask all exhibitors to have their Car Park passes displayed prior to arrival as the colour coding will enable speedy recognition to your designated parking spot - this will be the most convenient area for your benching wherever possible and will avoid undue delays on arrival.

Our 'MEET & GREET' team will be on hand as you arrive to point you in the right direction; the aim is for dogs to be benched in close proximity to their rings. On departure it is essential passes are shown to protect the safety of all exhibits.

An un-entered dogs tent is available - please remember however that all such dogs will require an Exit Pass, obtainable from the Secretary or the Chief Steward throughout the day

Visitors are welcome there is NO ADMISSION CHARGE, and car parking is free.

Please stay on to cheer on your favourite breed during Group Judging & Puppy Group Judging in the main ring each evening. There will be FREE TEA & COFFEE for spectators watching the Groups & Puppy Groups each evening from approximately 4.00pm

'From Little Acorns'


A few copies remain of this very special hard back, colour book which provides an interesting record of the history of the Birmingham Dog Show Society. There are many illustrations and it includes amusing anecdotes that detail why a particular Kennel Club rule was introduced. Several of the Birmingham gentlemen involved with this society were responsible for the formation of the Kennel Club, now our governing body.

When the first dog show took place in 1859 - there were only pointers and setters, later 'foreign' dogs were introduced. As ladies took an interest and began to exhibit, there was concern about the amount of sawdust on the floor soiling their long skirts. What would they think of today's outfits and of course the man made 'tracking' used to walk on over the grass? Things have certainly changed in the dog world in some aspects but as you will see if you read this fascinating account, some things are just the same.
