The Victoria Park Dog Show is the place to be seen in East London, if you’re a dog. Every year pampered pooches rub shoulders with no-nonsense bulldog types, and it all winds up being rather pleasant.
We strolled up this year with honorary Roman Road LDN mascot Rita the dachshund to experience Vicky Park at its doggiest. Plenty of old friends were there – Cheeky Cockney Chris Kimberly and his Shih Tzu Skye and Ryan Hodge of Woof Portraits among them.
All basked in the late summer sun and good vibes of the day. This photo gallery by Tabitha Stapely captures the event in full swing.

As a not-for-profit media organisation using ethical journalism to strengthen communities, we have not put our digital content behind a paywall or membership scheme as we think the benefits of an independent, local publication should be available to everyone living in our area.
If a fraction of the local 40,000 residents donated two pounds a month to Roman Road LDN it would be enough for our editorial team to serve the area full time and be beholden only to the community. Media is accountable to those who finance it. We want to be accountable to readers. Not to corporate sponsors, not to local government. To you. A pound at a time, we believe we can get there.
