WELCOME TO THE GREAT BRITISH RABBIT SHOW 2022
The Great British Rabbit Show is the British Rabbit Council's show to celebrate the Rabbit and all matters relating to rabbits in the United Kingdom. We are hosting a spectacular six star championship show and a pet show alongside it which will celebrate the exhibition hobby of rabbits, but also educate people in the needs and welfare requirements of keeping rabbits. It will also be a celebration of the heritage of pedigree rabbits, and educating the public about different breeds of rabbits.
If you love rabbits and want to know more about rabbits, then the The Great British Rabbit Show is the place to be on 2nd and 3rd July 2022 at the Newark Showground, Newark, Nottinghamshire.
There is an adult and a young (u5) show for the 6* show. The format of judging will be that all breed classes will occur on the Saturday 2nd July in the 6* show commencing at 08:45. Section challenges will then take place late afternoon of the Saturday after all breed judging is completed; these will only bring out the Best of Breed/Variety, no second or third rabbits will be brought out for challenges. Stock show judging will then commence at 08:30, with all judging to have concluded by 15:00 for the finale of Best in Show to conclude around 15:30.
Special Great British Rabbit Show CC's and Prize Cards will be awarded and they are kindly being produced and worked on by Jason Holder and team at Printing for Pleasure, who are a partner of the Great British Rabbit Show 2022. We are grateful for the support & commitment of Fur & Feather. Rosettes are currently being worked on and produced and glassware will be available for section winners and BiS etc.
Entry Fees will be £6 per rabbit (£5 same breed, colour, and age class.) We have special prize money awarded to section placings and Best in Show, Best Junior in Show, etc. BRC Levy will be met by the show. Door entry fees for exhibitors will be met by the show/BRC, up to certain limit which must be declared at time of entry.
There will be an online entry facility similar to that which Bradford operated for this year's 99th Bradford Championship Show. This will allow you to enter and pay online for your entries making life so much easier for all concerned. Entries will be through one single point in paper format, and then spread out amongst the section secretaries at the time. For online entries there will be a small admin charge, and also a postal charge automatically added to your entry at the checkout stage.
