Doodle fest

Post by Doodle Dee » 11 Apr 2019, 15:29

Anyone going this year?

Every now and then I look in. I can’t believe Lulu is almost 7 so I have known people here for over 6 years. A lot of people dont post at all any more and I’d love to know why and where they went and if they and their dogs are ok.

My problem is I keep forgetting my pass word and when I try and retrieve it by email no one gets back to it. I finally remembered to write it down

I’ll diary it to ensure I pop in and hopefully we will keep it going. I owe this forum so much and want to give back

A little info re Doodlefest - please see link below as more info on their pages. :)

Doodlefest is brought to you by Doodle Trust (founded as Labradoodle Rescue UK in 2007), and its team of irrepressible volunteers, its aim being to help spread the word and educate the public about the beautiful poodle crosses that Doodle Trust find themselves helping each year, and importantly, to raise funds to allow them to continue their great work.

Doodlefest is a fantastic family weekend, where else would you find people wearing fancy dress, dancing with their dogs and doing a pub quiz in the middle of a field? Like minded people and their dogs, not just doodles, come together for three days of camping, entertainment and laughs. They come to meet people they only previously knew in the virtual world and life long friendships have been formed, both human and canine!

This year will be in a brand new location, the fantastic Royle Showground near Burton-upon-Trent, the venue is vast and dogs can run free (show day being the only exception). We have a full schedule of entertainment across the weekend including a fun dog show with classes for all breeds and all the stalls and games you'd expect, fancy dress, disco, and the Doodlympics will be back on Sunday morning. How much more fun can you fit in! Our campsite has toilets and shower facilities, no electric hook ups unfortunately but small generators are permitted.

If you don't fancy the full weekend our gates are open to the public on Saturday 3 August at 9am. As well as the usual dog show we have agility, a scurry and lots of stalls for you to peruse whilst you realise that next year you want to experience Doodlefest in its entirety! You will not come across a friendlier place than Doodlefest!

Thank you for that information. I had heard about Doodlefest but didn't know much about it.

I assume they change the venue annually? Good to hear this one is fairly centrally located. It is certainly manageable in a day from where we live in the north west.

Will put the date in the diary- hopefully it will be dry and sun shining 8)
