DogandDuckOur main ring attraction this year, is the ‘Dog & Duck Show’. Stuart Barnes has travelled to over 100 countries working with wildlife, and his passion for the canine species has enabled him to gain an incredible understanding of everything about dogs. Stuart and his team use trained and untrained sheep dogs to herd ducks, amusing and educating the audience about common dog behaviour issues and about how these can be resolved.

The Dog & Duck show has kindly been sponsored by our new local Warner’s Budgens store located in Winchcombe.


Following the 2015 show, money was donated to:

Winchcombe Badminton Club
Winchcombe Fire and Rescue Service
Winchcombe Playgroup
Radio Winchcombe
Winchcombe School
Winchcombe Young Farmers' Club

In addition, the Winchcombe Daycare Centre received a joint donation from the proceeds of the Music evening organised by Bev Harrell and the Show.

Show entries close at 12 noon Saturday 27th August.
