SCHEDULES

'I really love Agilitynet for listing all the shows in one place -it's so helpful, especially as a newbie.' Kristina Dunnng.

It's not be practical to list ALL the schedules available here for space reasons so we've opted for those that we've received in the last two weeks. The shows in red are closing this week so hurry if you want to enter. Schedules can be downloaded direct from the Show Diary page.
