It is with great regret that we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Suffolk Dog Day, which was scheduled to take place on Sunday 29th July at Helmingham Hall, as a result of the ongoing predicted high temperatures.
The safety and enjoyment of visitors to Suffolk Dog Day comes first whether on two legs or four. This has always been fundamental to the principles of our much loved annual event. Having sought the opinion of experts and key stakeholders, it was felt that high standards of safety could not be guaranteed and the associated risks to the general public were too high.
Sincere apologies are offered for the disappointment and disruption that this may cause to all loyal Suffolk Dog Day supporters who we know will feel sad to hear this news.
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to our dedicated volunteers, loyal sponsors, stallholders and supporters. We appreciate your understanding at this difficult time and we hope for your vital continued support in future years.
We look forward very much to welcoming everyone to Helmingham Hall in 2019 for the biggest, best and safest Suffolk Dog Day ever!
