Top Irish band, Hudson Taylor, who featured some Dogs Trust residents in their recent music video “Run with Me”, will play a number of their biggest hits, as well as new Dublin band SAARLOOS, who will be performing an acoustic version of their debut single, “Changes”, which reached almost 4 million streams on Spotify.
All tickets are SOLD OUT!!
ALL dog tickets are now unfortunately sold out. A cap was placed on the number of dogs attending to help ensure the safety and comfort of attending people and dogs and to give everybody space to move around the event comfortably.
As this is a public event, dog owners will need to also adhere to The Control of Dogs Acts 1986 and 1992.
Special entertainment acts will include a magician, face painters, a balloon modeller and live bubbles, as well as the our very own “Dog Tales with Andrea Hayes” competition, a chance for people to tell the audience what their dog means to them and the impact their dog has had on their life, which will be judged by Irish model Holly Carpenter, TV presenter Maia Dunphy and Dogs Trust Head of Operations Karla Dunne.
