Hi Amanda, the Scruffts heats are held at various events during the year so you may need to contact the specific event organiser of the event you plan to attend. Not sure if this helps but it appears to be a list of 2018 Scrufts heats at the various events

Judge Rinder made a mistake announcing the Winner on Scruffts. He said that the winning breed was a Cavalier cross instead of the shih tzu cross

What happened? Was the winner supposed to be the Cavalier cross, that's what Judge Rinder announced?
