Southern Counties Bearded Collie Club Championship Show & Open Show with Obedience


Event Date: 01/05/2022 10:00 am - 02/05/2022 4:00 pm

All events are open to members and non-members.

Our social events are just that – an opportunity for you and your Beardies to meet up with old friends and to make new ones. We have fun games, puppy walks, veterans’ parades and demonstrations. There are always people on hand for advice whether for training, grooming or just generally living with a Beardie. The social events are also ideal for anyone considering getting a Beardie to come along and meet some for real and talk to their owners.  There is no need to book in advance – just turn-up on the day and enjoy the fun!

We also offer the opportunity to take either the Beardie Collie Working Tests or Kennel Club Bronze Good Citizen test at our social events or special Working Days – check the individual event details for further information.

We are immensely grateful to have worked with you on our festival this year. It is so rare to meet people who are so dedicated and enthusiastic about their work. You have both been so incredibly kind, generous and supportive in helping us with our festival. You are both a true credit to your profession and we honestly feel so lucky to have gotten to know you and work with you both.

Jolly Good Festival

Thank you so much for all the hard work your team put into our Fiesta last Friday. It went really well, and our clients / staff had a fantastic time. The support and help provided throughout was very much appreciated and helped the event to run so smoothly. The catering team also did a fantastic job and food selection/drinks options were perfect.

Southdown Fiesta

Warners Shows organise events with all major showgrounds across England. It was a pleasure to work, from start to finish, with such a professional and helpful team on site as we launched our new event on the South of England Showground. From point of sale through to ground staff. Looking forward to returning in 2024.
