Free family fun for One Man and His Dog

The hugely popular ILPH Family Extravaganza (formerly the ILPH Summer Show), which attracted 6000 visitors in 2004, will take place this year on Saturday 2nd July, at ILPH Hall Farm, Snetterton, Norfolk.

With free admission, there will be an array of new main arena attractions at the Family Extravaganza, including a fascinating display showing the vital work of the Newfoundland Dog Display Team, and the infectious fun of terrier racing!

Dogs are welcome on leads so you can involve your dog in the day’s enjoyment and bring him to the Companion Dog Show (held by kind permission of the Kennel Club). With a wide range of pedigree, handling and novelty classes, there will be something for everyone, and with entry fees only £1 per class, why not have a go at a variety of different classes? Rosettes will be awarded to sixth place, and all 1st prize winners from the pedigree and novelty classes will be invited to go forward to compete for the trophy of Best in Show.

Dino's Dynamics Flyball & Agility Team will present demonstrations of agility and flyball, and there will even be ‘have a go’ sessions for dogs over one year old.

The kids will be enthralled with the expanded children’s area, with lots of games, craft activities and bouncy castle. There will be a vast selection of craft, horse and pet trade stands planned for the day and a licensed bar – something for everyone!

The ILPH Family Extravaganza is a very important day in the ILPH Calendar, helping to raise both funds and awareness of the charity’s vital work for equine welfare, and with so much on offer, and FREE admission, is set to be a ‘must visit’ event of the year for animal lovers and families alike.

ILPH Hall Farm is signposted off the A11 between Thetford and Attleborough, about 30 minutes from Norwich or Newmarket. Dog show entries taken from 10am, classes start at 11am.
