The following cat shows, run under TICA rules, are planned by TICA chartered clubs in the UK. Also included in this diary are key cat shows elsewhere such as the TICA Annual.
All TICA cat shows are All Breed shows (meaning that any recognised breed is entitled to enter) and are also open to Household Pets and Kittens. For exhibitors, the club web-site provides show details, including closing dates for entries. Some shows offer discounts for early entry.
At "back to back" shows, you can enter for either day or for both days - as each day is a separate show. There is usually a different mix of cats on both days. Exhibitors are advised that some shows fill up before the closing date as TICA shows are so popular.
Your cat does not need to be registered with TICA to attend its first TICA show (NB: New Breeds and New Traits must be registered with TICA first) and any points/finals won at shows before a cat is registered will count towards titles once the cat is registered with TICA. "Back to back" shows count as one show for the purpose of this TICA rule.
For visitors, our cat shows are usually open to the public from 10 am until about 4.30pm. As well as seeing the cats and judging rings, there are often trade stalls to visit at our shows. Venue details are shown below - there is normally a small charge for admission to the show hall.
Clubs may choose to put on a “non-vetted” show. The show flyer should state clearly if the show is vetted or non-vetted. The implications of this are explained here. Some non-vetted shows may also have a vet available during the early part of the show to handle any health complaints at no or little cost to the person making the complaint. If in any doubt, check the exact position with the entry clerk.
Traders interested in having a stall at a show should contact the relevant club directly.
