It’s the canine social calendar event of the year – The Battersea Annual Reunion and Fun Day on Sunday 4 September

Come rain or shine, there’s only one place to be on Sunday 4 September: Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s Annual Reunion and Fun Day.

This free event in beautiful Battersea Park promises delicious food, stalls to peruse and a host of activities for dogs and people of all ages. There will be a range of dog classes, playgrounds and pooch paddling pools, games and activities for the people, and the chance to meet some of the charity’s homeless hounds that are looking for loving new owners.

Event: Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s Annual Reunion
Admission: Free!
Location: Battersea Park, London SW11 4NJ
Date: Sunday 4 September 2016
Time: 11am to 4.30pm

The Fun Day promises to be a spectacular family event and welcomes all dogs, not just former Battersea residents.

Visitors are encouraged to enter their canine friends in one of Battersea's infamous dog classes such as Golden Oldie, Loveliest Lady, Most Fabulous Fella and the hotly contested Best Battersea Dog.

A parade of Battersea rescue dogs will take to the floor, hopefully inspiring some new potential owners to give a second chance to one of the 5000 dogs the charity takes in every year.
