Clumber Spaniels: Picnic in the Park & fundraising event

The Clumber Spaniels are holding an event and everyone is invited. Join them at The Kennels in Hardwick village for a history talk, demonstrations, competitions and a scurry.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Organised by Walking with Clumbers, the Working Clumber Spaniel Society and the Clumber Spaniel Club, this event is open to everyone and all dog breeds - you don't have to own a Clumber.

Come and meet the breed and find out more about their historic links with Clumber Park.

This event also aims to raise vital funds which will be used to complete the ornamental bridge restoration works. Bollards in the shape of Clumber Spaniels will be created to stand guard and help protect the Grade II listed monument for future generations.

As well as a variety of activities (listed below) there will be a scurry for dogs to take part in and some fun competitions for all ages to get involved in too.

10.30 - Walking With Clumbers Lakeside Walk (joining this walk requires prior registration)

11.30 & 12.30 - Guided walks to The Kennels from Central Bark café and Cow Pastures car park (open to all and takes around 30 minutes)

13.00 - The Dukes and their dogs: talk on the history of the Clumber Spaniel

13.30 - Demonstration by The Clumberjacks Obedience Team

14.00 - Clumber Spaniel Grooming Demonstration
