Racing rabbits come to town

RACING rabbits return to Harrogate next month, as the Burgess Premier Small Animal Show comes to the Yorkshire Event Centre.

Last year’s competition boasted a new name and new attractions, resulting in one of the most successful shows in its history.

The event is the home of the UK’s only Rabbit Grand National. Other animals on show include gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice and rats.

Tickets are £7 for adults and £3 for children, from www.smallanimalshow.co.uk or on the door. The show is from 9am-5.30pm on Saturday, January 28 and 9am-4pm on Sunday, January 29.
