It's the Year of the Dog at Southport Flower Show

VISITORS to the Southport Flower Show can bring along a very special guest this summer; their pet dog. For the 1st time in the event's 89 year history, families are welcome to bring along their 4 legged friends to the seaside venue in Victoria Park, Southport, Merseyside. The show will also feature a brand new Arena entertainment programme, with acts to be announced closer to the event.

Organisers of Britain's largest independent flower show have issued the open invitation as celebrations are held to start the Year of the Dog in the Chinese calendar.

Previously, only guide dogs were permitted onto the showground during the 4 day event this year, but for many years, 1 of the most common questions from visitors to the show has been to ask if they can bring their beloved pets along with them for the day out.

General Manager Ray Roukin said:- "We know the Southport Flower Show is hugely popular with dog lovers and we're always being asked by visitors if they can bring their pets along. 2018 will be the Year of the Dog at Southport."

The show this year will take place from Thursday, 16 August, until Sunday, 19 August 2018. Southport Flower Show, animal lovers will not only have their wishes granted for them to be allowed to bring their 4 legged friends, but the dogs will be admitted at no extra charge.
