Crufts 2023 dates announced by Kennel Club

Crufts will once again be held at the NEC in Birmingham

The dog club announced when Crufts will return to Birmingham next year. The world famous show took place in Brum last year and after a successful event it will be back next March.

The 2023 show will also see Crufts return in full for the first time since 2020 and will see the Kennel Club celebrate its 150th anniversary. Vanessa McAlpine, Head of Education and Events at Crufts, said: “We are very excited to be bringing Crufts back in full this year, which we haven’t been able to do since pre-covid.

“With many popular events returning to the schedule and the unique new competition celebrating the Kennel Club’s 150th anniversary, we hope it will be one of the best shows yet, celebrating our canine heroes and what they have meant. for us over the past few years.”

Here’s what we know so far about the 2023 show, including which events will return to Birmingham and when.
