Crufts 2021 – Kennel Club statement 12/06/2020

The Kennel Club and the Crufts Committee are committed to holding Crufts 2021 if permitted to do so by the Government. We greatly appreciate the support the show receives each year from our exhibitors, sponsors, trade-stand holders, public visitors and Channel 4.


The qualification criteria for the show will be announced once the Government guidance is clear on future events, which may not be until the autumn. It may be that the show will need to be reformatted in a way to comply with new regulations. If so, more details about this will be announced as information becomes available.


We would ask for patience at what is a difficult time for everyone with limited information currently available as to how things will progress in the coming weeks and months.


Crufts is the world’s best known celebration of dogs and we very much look forward to welcoming you all to the show in happier times in 2021, if circumstances allow.
