Our breed-specific events are known to be the perfect way to socialise whether you’ve got an excitable puppy on your hands or an older pet that deserves a super-special day out, its a lovely place to meet like-minded people.
We are super welcoming to all and encourage guests to make friends and keep in touch after the event!
The famous Pop + Bark mobile Pupuccino Bar will be in the house serving up festive Pupuccinos.
Plus, it wouldn’t be a Circus without freshly-popped Pupcorn. We will be unveiling our brand-new Pupcorn Bar where you’ll get to pick your toppings… from Cheddar sprinkles to Christmas Turkey and Beef. Another exciting Pop+Bark experience for your Frenchie awaits!

There will also be a Pop Up Boutique so you can treat your Frenchie and maybe even pick up some of your Christmas shopping, too.
We are all dog lovers here so you don’t need to own your own Frenchie to come and enjoy this really special event. You can get to know the breed better and enjoy a really, joyful experience. We keep a close eye on the ratio of dogs to humans to everyone is happy!
We’re also fully inclusive and family-friendly, too. We have had so many little guests come to our events and they tell us it’s the happiest day of their life!
The Refinery Bankside is a beautiful, big venue with a large open area for dogs to play. There are also hidden, quieter areas where you can enjoy the event at a calmer pace. Being indoors, our event is totally weather-proof.
But, once your time slot has ended you’re welcome to stay and continue the party on the heated outdoor terrace – it’s perfect for people and Frenchie-watching so stay and soak in the fun, festive atmosphere.
