With a bustling marketplace of over 100 trade stands, visitors can shop for an extensive array of cat-related products, from gourmet treats to bespoke accessories.

The event will boast a dedicated Theatre, hosting talks from esteemed global speakers on a variety of cat-related topics. From behaviour and health to the latest trends in feline care, attendees can immerse themselves in a world of knowledge and entertainment.

In a historic moment for feline enthusiasts, The Cat Show Live proudly announces the participation of members from the World Cat Congress (WCC) in a combined event, alongside representation from TICA, Fife, and GCCF. This collaboration marks a new era in celebrating the diversity and excellence within the global cat community.

Founded by the passionate husband and wife team, Peter Banbury, and Samantha Marsh, The Cat Show Live Ltd brings over 20 years of collective experience within the cat sector. Samantha, a former breeder of Maine Coons and award-winning entrepreneur recognized by #SBS Theo Paphitis, showcased her expertise on BBC 1’s The Apprentice with her niche small business.

The Cat Show Live is not just an event; it’s a culmination of our love for cats and our commitment to responsible, educated cat ownership, (RECO)” says Samantha Marsh, co-founder of The Cat Show Live Ltd.

Our long-term vision is to establish an annual event in the calendar that not only celebrates feline excellence but also gives back to support cat charities and rescues across the UK.”

This event not only celebrates the cat world but also serves as a platform to spotlight the incredible work done in the UK to rescue and rehome cats.

At the heart of The Cat Show Live is a commitment to fostering a culture of RECO emphasizing the importance of informed and compassionate care for our feline companions. The event invites visitors to delve into the heartwarming world of cat rescues and adoptions through “Hope Alley,” an innovative initiative that leverages a digital rehome application to support and streamline the rehoming process.

The Cat Show Live Ltd stands proud in its mission to contribute positively to the community. A significant stride towards this goal includes the annual commitment to donate a percentage of profits to chosen charity(s), underscoring a dedication to making a lasting impact. However, the true essence of the event lies in its support for facilitating connections between visitors and rescue centres.

“Hope Alley” not only showcases the technological advancements in aiding cat rescues but also serves as a beacon for those seeking to make a difference. The Cat Show Live Ltd invites attendees to witness firsthand the incredible work happening in the realm of feline welfare and encourages active participation in the noble cause of rehoming cats.

Join us at the Cat Show and its launch event as we celebrate the companionship of cats, champion responsible pet ownership and support the remarkable efforts of rescue centres across the UK. Together, we are embarking on a journey to make a positive impact on the lives of our beloved feline friends.
