Now in its fifth year, we were runner up for Best Open House in 2015, 2018 and 2022. 

We show only dog art, over 200 pieces of the very best available.  Fourteen artists will be exhibiting, seven of the most popular from past shows and seven new artists.


The DOG SHOW is co-ordinated by Joanna Osborne. She and Sally Muir have made a career out their love of dogs. They are the co-authors of the best-selling Best In Show series of knitting books; Sally is an accomplished artist, mainly of dogs.

We will be serving teas, cakes by composer and cookery writer Orlando Gough, and homemade treats for all dogs.

Orlando will also be creating a dog soundscape.

The DOG SHOW has appeared on BBC and ITV local news and in numerous publications.
