WKC 2020 - Cancelled
Judge : Karen Gilliland
awarding CC’s for the 1st time
It is with regret that the Welsh Kennel Club announces that its 2020 Championship Show is cancelled. This decision has been made in the interest of the welfare, safety and security of judges, exhibitors, spectators, volunteers and the Officers and Committee, caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
WKC are also aware of the Welsh Assembly Government guidelines which continue to enforce the lock-down etc. in Wales. There are many uncertainties which adversely affect the preparation and actual running of the WKC 2020 Show.
The doubts in the availability of the RWAS Showground, hotel accommodation plus social restrictions, all dictate as to whether the show can proceed and have contributed to the decision to cancel the 2020 show.
2020 judges will be contacted to advise of the cancellation and to offer a future appointment.
The Officers and Committee of the Welsh Kennel Club send their best wishes to our members, supporters, exhibitors, stewards and all judges at this most difficult time.
We look forward to your support at the Welsh Kennel Club 2021 Show to be held between 20th and 22nd August 2021 at the RWAS Showground, Builth Wells.
SKC August 2020 - Cancelled
SCOTTISH KENNEL CLUB AUGUST 2020 CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW
Birmingham City 2020 - Cancelled
Judge : Hazel Fitzgibbon
Richmond 2020 - Cancelled
Judge : Sheila Jakeman
The Officers and Committee of the Richmond Dog Show Society have noted the strong recommendation made by the Kennel Club, on 13th May, that in the light of the continued restrictions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic that all forthcoming events until the end of September should be cancelled.
Logistical uncertainties including availability of the venue, the ability of contractors and suppliers to support the planning, setting up and running of the show, the willingness or otherwise of spectators, exhibitors, judges, stewards, helpers and trade stand holders to risk possible exposure to the virus, the provision of hotel accommodation, and the requirement to adhere to social distancing at the show have also been considered.
In the light of the above the Officers and Committee have concluded that it would be contrary to government policy and Kennel Club guidance and socially irresponsible to continue with plans to hold the Society’s forthcoming 2020 championship show on 11th-13th September.
We fully understand and regret the sense of disappointment and sadness this announcement will cause to our members, sponsors, judges, exhibitors, stewards, and commercial trade partners. All our appointed judges for the 2020 show will be contacted and informed of the situation and offered the same appointment at a subsequent show.
We wish all our members and supporters continued health and safety in the wake of these unprecedented effects on lifestyle and socialisation that are proving so restrictive and frustrating to so many of us and look forward to being able to welcome you all at our show to be held on Friday, 10th to Sunday, 12th September 2021.

Driffield 2020 - Cancelled
Judge : Keith Baldwin
The Officers and Committee of the Driffield Championship Dog Show Society regret to announce the cancellation of the forthcoming show to be held at Wetherby Racecourse over the weekend of October 1st to 4th 2020.
This decision has not been taken lightly. The safety of all persons who would be expected to attend the show is the most important and significant factor in this decision.
Following the guidance given by the Government and the strong recommendations of The Kennel Club concerning the COVID-19 Pandemic, it has been advised that events such as major dog shows during this year should be cancelled, unless sufficient safety precautions could be implemented.
Given that Driffield is the last outdoor Championship Dog Show of the year it was seen as not suitable to apply for a new license to defer to a later date, which could only happen if items such as venue, hotel and everything else required for the organisation of the show was available.
The Society therefore share your disappointment and sadness that the show must be cancelled, however we look forward to seeing old friends and those new to our sport at the same venue but on the new dates for 2021, Friday 26th August through to Monday 29th August.
In the meantime, please stay safe and well.
Date. 28th May 2020
South Wales KA 2020 - Cancelled
Judge : Jane Paradise
Following the KC guidance issued on 13th May the Officers and Committee of the South Wales Kennel Association have carried out a comprehensive risk assessment for the show in October. The safety of all who attend the show is paramount and coupled with the uncertainty of availability of the showground and accommodation in the area the decision has been made to cancel the show. We are in the process of offering all judges future appointments and would like to express our thanks to all those who support us each year and help to make the show a success.
For those exhibitors who have already entered via the Fosse Data website refunds will be processed.
We look forward to seeing you all again in 2021 when as usual, we will host several club shows. If any other breed would like to hold their show in conjunction with ours we would be delighted to hear from you.
We trust everyone stays safe in the meantime.
