Enter the Pests Pet Show with your Hot Dog!

Enter The Pests Pet Show!

Commissioned BEAF artists from Pests Production have launched an awesome new project and we want you and your furry friends to be a part of it!

What is it?
The Pests Pet Show is running until 16th December to raise money for the Albert Kennedy Trust (AKT). This show is a chance for people to show off their pets from the comfort of their own home, in a variety of class categories. Simply send in a picture of your best friend, whether you think they’re the top rescue animal, most gorgeous pup, or have a habit of pulling ridiculous faces. There’s a whole range of classes to enter!
Seeing as how everyone’s stuck inside this year, we thought this would be a fun way to all come together, whilst also getting the chance to look at adorable animals, which we could probably all use right about now!
  1. Every class has a guest judge, and the chance to win rosettes from 1st to 6th place.
  2. All those who win first in their class automatically get entered into our free championship class, where there’s the chance to win Show Champion & Reserve Champion.
  3. All classes cost £1 per entry, and 100% of the money given goes directly to AKT.
Dachshunds get free entry to the BEAF Hot Dog Show!
As well as this, any Dachshund who enters any class is automatically added into the free BEAF Hot Dog! show. This class was inspired by BEAF’s 2019 Dachshund Dash, and we’d love to see just as many mini friends join in as they did at their spectacular event last year! The winner of Hot Dog will receive a large champion rosette, but there can be only one weiner!
Who are Pest Production? Here’s Sophia to explain more:
Pests decided to run this show since we couldn’t get out and do our regular programme of Theatre and Drag nights. Usually, Pests put on shows across the South West, with a range of artists and themes, and work with local, national, and international artists. This year, with us all stuck indoors, we wanted a way to bring some joy to the community, and raise funds for a good cause. AKT helps homeless LGBTQ+ youth to get off the streets and into safe housing, where they are given training and opportunities to get them into work. We are really looking forward to being a part of the BEAF 2021 festival next year. In the meantime, share your pets in the Pests Pet Show!
