APRIL 2014 presents an open submission exhibition comprised of regal, dapper and dandy cats and dogs as part of this year’s DANDIFEST! at The Bridge. With donations from artists of all ages and abilities Reigning Cats & Dogs also includes a selection from the talented folk at Barrington Farm. All the pictures are to be auctioned off at the end of the show and proceeds will go towards the Pet Food Bank, helping to feed pets whose owners struggle to make ends meet.

DANDIFEST! is a two-week Arts Council England funded festival curated byThe Norwich Dandies, a well-heeled collective of artists bursting with flamboyance and decadence. Sprung from the fabulousness of the Norwich LGBT Pride celebrations in 2010, the group publicly indulge in creative collaborations, celebrating painting, poetry, photography, performance, drawing, sculpture, installation and much more. Beginning on Monday 28thApril, Reigning Cats & Dogs introduces this fun-packed, colourful event where difference is accepted, encouraged and valued.
