This weekend at Cheltenham Racecourse the PDSA welcomed thousands of festival goers to its first festival, designed for our four legged friends to enjoy.
PDSA Petlife18 - Fun in the bank holiday sun!
PDSA Petlife18 – Fun in the bank holiday sun!
A packed programme of entertainment and music took place under the bank holiday sunshine with headline acts Kaiser Chiefs, Jessie J and The Vamps taking to the stage after a day of dog activities. Dogs bathed in pools, got check ups from PDSA vets and plenty of fuss from the likes of Vodafone, Body Shop and Sykes Cottages.
Lilyland was a particular favourite of ours. Dogs were welcomed to an all you can eat supply of Lily’s pet food in the doggy diner, there was games to win prizes and plenty of places to relax in the sunshine.
Lilys had their whole range of petfood on display, everything from Sunday lunch to breakfast crunch! They even gave us a cheeky discount code to share with you all from the event – 15% off your first order from Lily’s Kitchen with the code NEWMENU
The Waterloo Band and Bugles of the Rifle kicked things off, entertaining the crowd with their uplifting military marching tunes, followed by the PDSA’s own choir, Pitch Pawfect. Support acts Sour Kix, Gasoline & Matches, Alex Jayne, and young singer Charlotte, warmed up for the headline acts The Vamps, Jessie J and Kaiser Chiefs, who finished the day with a bang.
Courageous Police Dog Finn, who nearly died after being stabbed while protecting his handler as they challenged an armed suspect, received the PDSA Gold Medal, known as the George Cross for animals, at the festival. Guests queued for a meet and greet in the paddock afterwards.
