The East of England Championship Dog Show has been running since the early 1960s as a championship show and is organised by the East of England Agricultural Society. It is open to those who want to enter a Kennel Club registered dog at a competitive level and can be used to qualify for Crufts.

Today features Terriers and Utility; Friday is Toy and Hound; Saturday is Gundogs; finally, Sunday is Working and Pastoral.

Jason Lunn, venue director, welcomed the show back to the venue, saying:“I’m delighted to announce the return of The East of England Championship Dog Show to our venue. It has been a difficult year for events, but the agricultural society has worked tirelessly under difficult conditions to organise what I’m confident will be a superb event.”
