<strong>A new exhibition opening at Newmarket’s Palace House this summer is heaven scent for dog lovers.</strong>

Opening on 31st August 2020* and running through to 4th October 2020, <em>The Good Companions: The Many Roles of our Canine Friends</em> is a compelling and engaging exploration of our relationship with dogs down the centuries. Featuring beautiful paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, books and objects, even taxidermy of four-legged friends, <em>The Good Companions</em> – like the subjects themselves – is packed with <em>pawsonality</em>. Among the works on display, are pieces by such luminaries as George Stubbs, William Hogarth, Edwin Landseer, Dame Elisabeth Frink and Sir Alfred Munnings, with depictions of dogs ranging from cheerful mongrels and sleek greyhounds to determined terriers.
