Lurcher Arena

The events in the Lurcher Arena are run by Lurcher Link – a rescue organisation specialising in the care, rehabilitation and rehoming of lurchers in need.

Lurcher Link is a not-for-profit organisation that is run entirely by volunteers and relies on donations or fund-raising activities to cover running costs. So why not swing by the lurcher area to visit the stalls and admire the grace and beauty of these magnificent dogs. There are also opportunities for your dog, whatever the breed, to “have-a-go” at agility and long jump.
