Around 8,000 people and their four-legged friends took over Battersea Park for this event last year. A flurry of fur and friendly faces will celebrate the famous animal sanctuary and hopefully encourage visitors to rehome a Battersea dog. They'll create a paradise for animals and owners alike featuring stalls, activities, refreshments and even playgrounds and paddling pools for pooches. Your dog doesn't have to be Battersea alumni – all canine pals are welcome – and owners might like to enter their pride and joy into the dog show. Classes include Golden Oldie, Handsomest Dog and Best Battersea Dog, and the show will be judged by the charity's celebrity supporters.
