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.
The Secretary will write to all Judges contracted to judge at our 2020 show with a full explanation of the situation.
