Dogstival is gearing up for a postponed weekend of entertainment not to be missed. The stunning Burley Park is an eminently suitable replacement venue for the festival which was originally scheduled for May, and it's now getting ready to host ticketed four-legged festival goers with their owners on 5 and 6 September.

Advance tickets only - no tickets at the gate this year

In common with other events now going ahead, it is essential that the organisers Lighthouse Marketing are able to manage numbers and adhere to track and trace details. The obvious answer is: book your tickets now! See below for prices and go to to buy.

It’s music to a dog’s ears! The ultimate day out for you and your dog...

The main arena sees the Essex Dog Display team, the bonkers Phill Gibbons Nippers, Terriers & Lurchers with Stuart Barnes Sheep Dog & Duck display a firm family favourite. 

Pet care to behaviour training - useful canine knowledge on tap for all owners!

Another pup-date is the new Healthy Hound Den hosted by This Morning’s TV Vet Dr Scott Miller, he’ll share his knowledge on all manner of pet care subjects from puppy, seniors, first aid and tips for certain breeds, as well as talks from physios and food nutrition experts in the ‘pop-up demo kitchen’. 

The Dog House Behaviour Stage welcomes Natalie Light, one of the most recognised trainers and behaviourists around - she’ll will be helping to create dogstival pylewell dogs1an even stronger bond with our best friends.

There is a second Show Arena hosted by the utterly bonkers Anna ‘the Barking Blonde’ Webb, with demonstrations, fun dog shows, kids obedience competitions and a chance to meet rare breeds.
