The centre will be lined with stalls and a cafeteria will provide refreshments.

Last year, Anna McEntee’s tabby Grand Champion and Imperial Grand Premier Zendique Atzar Isborn overcame stiff competition from 64 other competitors to be crowned overall Best In Show.

The show, which has developed a large following since it was first run in 1996, is organised Barbara and Stuart McEwen.

The centre is at Broad Drove East, Tydd St Giles, PE13 5LN. The event runs from 12.30-4pm. For more information call Barbara McEwen on 01945 780027
