It’s that time of the year again! The time of year where I start getting ridiculously excited and practically foam at the mouth. No, it’s not Christmas, but it does begin with the letter ‘C’… and it’s all about dogs so thinking about it, it might actually be my favourite time of the year! Yep, it’s CRUFTS! Ta Dah!
Well, it’s the run up to it at least, because the actual dates are Thursday 5, March – Sunday 8, March.
Crufts, as always is held at the Birmingham N.E.C. We’re lucky enough to be able to pop along ourselves again this year and even better than that… we get to invite you too! Some of you, at least, four to be exact.
Ellie is kindly offering to share a pair of her tickets with two lucky winners.
HERE ARE THE DETAILS OF THE COMPETITION:
✭ Competition entry is over on our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/PawedCouture and the post is pinned to the top!
✭ Winners will be drawn on Sunday 22, February
✭ I will notify winners via Facebook and will need to obtain a postal address
✭ Tickets will be posted by Ellie the next day
✭ Due to timescale, I’m afraid this draw is for UK residents only (unless you happen to know you will be in the UK and able to attend on the dates AND you have a UK address for us to send tickets to).
HERE ARE SOME DETAILS ABOUT THE ACTUAL TICKETS:
✭ The competition is for a PAIR of tickets
✭ The tickets cannot be re-sold
✭ The tickets are valid for one day of your choosing from the four.
✭ If you choose to go on the Sunday, you cannot use this ticket to view ‘Best in Show’ in the arena, further costs will apply should you wish to see this. The ticket IS valid for the rest of the spectacular that is Crufts, though.
✭ You can’t take your own pooch I’m afraid 😦
HERE ARE SOME DETAILS ABOUT THE SHOW:
Crufts takes place from 5 – 8 March 2015 at The NEC, Birmingham
Show opening times each day: 8:15 – 19:30
2015 Group Schedule (who’s being judged on that day):
✭ Thursday 5, March – Gundog
✭ Friday 6, March – Working and Pastoral
✭ Saturday 7, March – Terrier and Hound
✭ Sunday 8, March – Toy and Utility
But, of course, Crufts is about way more than judging breed standards these days. It’s a PACKED day and you need a little bit of planing beforehand to see everything you want to. Here’s just a little bit of info about what you can expect:
✭ 22,000 dogs competing for the world-class title of Crufts Best In Show
