Exeter's Annual Cruelty-Free Christmas Extravaganza
Posted 8 November 2010
Animal Aid South West Christmas Without Cruelty Fayre
Exeter Corn Exchange
Market Street, Exeter, EX1 1BU
Sunday 28 November 2010
Our South West Christmas Without Cruelty Fayre has grown steadily over the last three years, and this time we’ve put together a show that everybody who cares about animals, people and the environment is likely to enjoy.
Christmas shopping that makes a difference
Unlike most High Street stores, our stallholders are almost all small traders who will be offering unique, unusual and attractive possibilities for Christmas presents.
Cruelty-free and eco-friendly products on sale will include fairtrade clothing, cosmetics, perfumes and make-up, crafts, pottery, charity Christmas cards, handmade chocolates, preserves, vegan cakes, vegetarian shoes, treats for pets, and jewellery. Even the face paints for kids have been ethically sourced and are not tested on animals!
Alongside our ethical companies will be many campaign groups, including Animal Aid (of course!), Animals Asia, Devon Wildlife Trust, the Marine Conservation Society, the Hare Preservation Trust, the League Against Cruel Sports, Hunt Saboteurs and VIVA!.
Forty stands in all will offer you the chance to buy Christmas gifts and cards in the sure knowledge that your money will go to a worthy organisation or an ethical company.
Food, glorious food!
We hope you’ll want to stay for lunch … or at least for a snack! The delicious menu in our vegetarian café includes savoury dishes, cakes and puddings. We’ve got everything from lasagne, nut roast, wraps and pizzas to lemon & pineapple tart and chocolate & peanut torte!
Last year we ran out of food early, so we’ve done everything we can to ensure that we won’t have the same problem again.
New this year is also a gluten-free food stall.
Free entry and a great prize draw
Not only do we not charge you to come in, but we’re also giving a free gift to the first few hundred visitors – all of whom will receive a Nak’d bar full of raw food goodness.
We’ve also organised a fabulous prize draw, with a first prize of a two-day break at Michael House, the award-winning vegetarian guest house near Tintagel. And there are many other great prizes besides.
Tickets for the draw are only £1 each.
World Music choir
And finally, don’t miss a performance by the Crediton and Exeter University World Music Choir, at around midday. They’ve sung at our event every year and they really are a treat to hear.
So please do come along and join us on November 28th. It promises to be a great day out, and the perfect opportunity to get your cruelty-free Christmas shopping done early!
