Golden Guernsey and British Guernsey Shows

In 2019, the National Breed Shows were on 29th and 30th of June at Newark, and the Regional Shows were Devon MYS on 23rd June, Stithians on 15th July and Norwich MYS on 21st July.

The following Shows had exhibitors in Golden and/or British Guernsey classes in 2019 (taken from BGS results published November 2019), but the Covid-19 outbreak caused all shows to be cancelled for 2020 and most of 2021. Because of this, the GGGS held a photographic Breed Show in 2020, and some results are below.

The 2022 Show calendar is available on the BGS website ( We have two Regional shows planned for 2022. One at the Suffolk Show on 31st May, the other at the Great Yorkshire Show on 14th July.
