There is NOT a Dog Show at Burwarton Show
Visitors are welcome to bring dogs to the Show as long as they are kept on a short lead and remain under control. However, a visit to the Show can be a long day and there are crowds of people; it might be wise to make alternative arrangements for your dog.

All waste from the event is returned to Smiths-Gloucester site where they recycle as much as possible with the residue going to an Energy from Waste plant where it is burnt at very high temperatures to produce electricity for homes and businesses.
