The GCCF give excellent advice on their website for getting started on showing your cat(s).
The Officers and Committee Members are more than happy to give you advice. Any questions please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All exhibitors on Show day can arrive from 8am and must be vetted in by 10am. Judging will commence from 10am – 12pm when all exhibitors will be required to leave the hall.
Exhibitors and visitors will be allowed back into the hall once judging is completed.
VOLUNTEERS – email the Show Team email@example.com
All cat shows rely on volunteer help throughout the day. Our show on 17th September 2022 is no different. Having a sufficient number of helpers makes everything runs smoothly. While some exhibitors help when they can most volunteers do not enter the show. Previous experience isn’t required. The only qualification is you like cats! You can learn as you go and there are people on hand to guide you on the day.
For most roles helpers are required to be at venue – Queen Margaret University, Musselburgh before judging commences at 10am sharp. Exceptions might be made by prior arrangement with the Show Manager, Sally Woolrich. Most volunteers arrive between 8-8:30am.

Dress is casual – wear what’s comfortable. With the exception of administration workers most volunteers spend the day on their feet. The show normally finishes between 4-5pm.
Donations for the raffle and tombola are welcome from local businesses right up until the day of the show. We can arrange local collection in and around Edinburgh.
