Novelty dog show at centre

Eastwood’s DH Lawrence Heritage Centre will honour man’s best friend this weekend with its annual novelty dog show.

Dog owners are invited to bring their canine friends along to the heritage centre in Mansfield Road from 11am.

They will have a chance to take home rosettes in classes including waggiest tail, best mover, veteran, child handling and many more.

There will also be plenty of treats for dogs and prizes for all children taking part.

Visitors to the event will be able to browse around a wide variety of stalls, and purchase refreshments from the on-site DH Lawrence Bistro.

The event will take place on the field adjacent to the Lawrence Centre.

Judging is from 12pm and the field will be open between 11am and 4pm.

Admission is free, with a £1.50 charge per dog per class entered.
