Dates for the Diary
We hope this page helps with your planning for the year. The events can be contacted by their web pages but should you have difficulty, please contact our show secretary using the link at the foot of the page and we shall be pleased to help.
Update: Covid-19. Almost all the 2020 shows in the list below were cancelled. We hope that some of them will take place in 2021, but it is likely many will be cancelled again. If Covid and DEFRA regulations permit, we shall try to give everyone a chance to meet and show their sheep in 2021 by organising Portland sheep events around the country. Please watch this space for further news.
Portland Online Show 2021
Following the success of last years’ two online shows and knowing that ‘live’ shows will not be happening until later in the year, the PSBG Committee have decided to have one online show this year combining the best of both of last year’s events.
The show is open to all but the entries must be of registered/registrable Portlands or using Portland wool.
Entries should be e-mailed by Saturday 5th June to firstname.lastname@example.org (and if possible posted on the facebook page). Entries for the caption competition may be sent by post.
We look forward to receiving your entries – last time we had entries from the Netherlands and all over the UK, something just not possible at a real show.
