  • Or contact our Show Secretary, Eleanor Boote on 01942 795380 for postal copies. We also have arranged for a stall at Crufts (by the ringside) and schedules will be available there as well as Committee trawling around the benches and the hordes by the rings. If convenient we will be taking entries on the day – Eleanor will be on the stall to facilitate this, along with her other duties.

  • We have moved forward our regular show date to allow a Back to Back weekend with the National Terrier show which is being held on the previous day Saturday 1st April (honest it’s true). The judges at the National Terrier are – dogs Paul Stanway (Waystaff) – bitches Elaine Norton (Tikkurilan). Note – this show is held at Stafford and it is about 60 miles up the M6 to Leigh – takes just over an hour. To enter this show on-line follow this link:–  https://www.dog.biz/  or download a schedule at http://www.highampress.co.uk/natterrier.pdf

  • The North West is arranging an informal gathering on the Saturday evening between the two shows at a nearby (to Leigh Sports Village) hostelry – details to emerge at a later date. All are invited and are most welcome to join us.

  • For long distance travellers who wish to attend both shows and are looking for board and lodgings we have identified a number of hotels in the area that take dogs:-

  • The IBIS, Knutsford 44 (0)1565 650636 – Pentahotel, Warrington 44 (0)1925 847050 – Novotel, Worsley, Manchester 44 (0)161 619002 – Mercure Bolton Georgian House Hotel, Bolton 44 (0)844 8159029

  • These can be booked along with other accommodation on https://www.booking.com/ just enter Leigh, Greater Manchester, click on Search and then the “pets allowed” option, a vast choice comes up.

  • Leigh Indoor Sports Centre is relatively new and is part of a modern complex of sporting facilities – Leigh Sports Village including a football stadium, a hotel (not dog friendly), a pub – The Whistling Wren – and a Morrisons supermarket. The venue has not been used for dog shows before so it’s a trial for all concerned, although they have had a cat show there in the past. The complex is conveniently situated less than 5 minutes along the A579 from the East Lancs road (A580) which in turn is 4 miles from the M6 – J23.

  • The hall is 8 badminton courts in size, which is pretty big so can easily accommodate our show and more. In comparison the hall at Little Lever, the venue for our last Ch show in 2015 is half the size of Leigh. Car parking is free and plentiful; we will be serving tea and coffee at the entrance to the Hall and refreshments are available elsewhere in the Hall. No bar I’m afraid but there is a pub within the Sports Village.

  • We are very much looking forward to this show, it will be a great weekend – so here’s hoping to see you all there, it’s an occasion not to be missed.
