Sleuth! It’s Brockwell Park Dog Show 9 July

What’s On ? It’s elementary – Sunday 9 July 2017 Brockwell Park Dog Show

After the success of 2015’s Woof Hall judged by local Oscar-winner Mark Rylance, and last year’s David Bow-wow-ie theme, the dogs are bark at 2pm on Sunday 9 July.

Help solve the mystery of which is the cutest dog in Brockwell Park with this year’s theme of fictional detectives.

Organisers say: “We’re looking forward to seeing many Sherlocks, Marples, Columbos and Poirots on the day! This is a free, fun family day out. We’d like to really encourage everyone to get into the spirit of things by dressing up as your favourite detective or sleuth.

There will be a mini-parade of children with their favourite stuffed toys to the sounds of Ruby Rhymes.
