THE Blue Cross annual charity fete and dog show is to be held next Saturday, September 1 – and it promises to be the biggest and best yet.

The programme includes juggling, unicycling, tightrope walking in a circus workshop and taking part in a drumming class with Glamba.

The fundraiser opens at midday and runs until 4pm at the charity’s rehoming centre on Wildmoor Lane in Catshill.

Admission is £1 adults and children under 14 are free. The dog show is 50p per class and the first class starts at 1pm.

Away from the excitement, visitors can enjoy listening to the Droitwich Ukelele Club with a cup of tea and a slice of cake or watch a bit of Appalachian dancing or some amazing tricks with bubbles.

Manager Neil Edwards said: “We are really excited about this year’s event and hope to see lots of dogs enter the dog show classes. We are really grateful to everyone who has helped get such an incredible day together.”
