We are delighted to confirm that after what feels like a very long two years without a show, we will be running back-to-back with the Wiltshire and District Cat Club at Thornbury Leisure Centre on Saturday 1st July 2023. Further details will be published on our facebook page a little nearer the time.
Unfortunately due to the ongoing COVID 19 Pandemic situation and venue restrictions / limitations, unfortunately the 2021 show will not be taking place as hoped. The plan is to hold our next show in late 2022 and further details will be made available here and on our facebook page in due course.
Following the updated GCCF Board announcement that all licensed GCCF shows through to 30 November 2020 have been cancelled, and in consultation with our Show Manager, the sad decision has been made to cancel our show for this year. With the current COVID-19 situation which everyone is facing, it was considered to be the only sensible course of action. We hope that some semblance of normality will return for everyone next year and that we may be able to hold a show late in 2021. Announcements will be made here and on our Facebook page in due course.
The GCCF have announced the cancellation of all licensed shows and events due to take place this Summer and there will be a review in October to decide what will happen for the remainder of the year. We are hopeful that our Show will be able to take place in December but obviously no decision will be made until nearer the time.
The Committee would like to thank everybody who took part in our show. It was a very long day for some, but it was lovely to see so many of you and your gorgeous cats. We hope you all had an enjoyable day. Many congratulations to the worthy winners, and especially to our Best In Show Pet winner, OBIGMC Miss Mary, and our overall Best In Show winner, UK & IGRCH Nobilero Raiclach Banrion. Particular thanks to the lovely ladies who ran the table for us and did a fantastic job. And of course special thanks to The National Cat Club who invited us to share the venue along with the Tonkinese Breed Club.
Schedules and application forms for the 2019 show are due out early in October. Links to download them will be available on the GCCF website. We hope to see lots of you there with your lovely cats.
Following our AGM last month, we are pleased to be able to announce a reduction in our membership rates going forward. Please see our Membership page for more information. Members will be entitled to discounted rates at our annual show.

We are delighted to be able to announce that our 2019 Show will be held at The Leisure Centre, Bagshot Road, Bracknell on Saturday 7th December. It will be lovely to be re-joining old friends, The National Cat Club, and for the first time our show will be open to All Breeds. Further details will be posted in due course.
We would like to wish all of our members a Happy and Healthy New Year.
Please feel free to send us your photos and show brags from 2018 and we will upload them to the website. Remember that we love to hear from you throughout the year with all your cat news!
