South West Christmas without Cruelty Festival 2011 with Benjamin Zephaniah
Posted 31 October 2011
We’ve renamed our annual Exeter event a ‘festival’ because we think it more accurately reflects the spirit of the occasion. And this year we have a very special guest to add to the usual festivities. Benjamin Zephaniah, the nation’s favourite performance poet and long-standing animal advocate, will be joining us to speak and read a few of his poems (around midday), sign books (another great idea for an unusual Christmas present!) and chat with visitors. Why not come along and meet him?
Sunday 27 November, Exeter Corn Exchange, Market Street, Exeter, EX1 1BM. 10am-4.30pm
As always, all the companies and organisations taking part are committed to making the world a kinder and cleaner place, and every purchase you make will be going to a good cause, be it animal welfare, human rights or environmental protection. It’s a great opportunity to buy unique gifts and seasonal cards that don’t cost the earth. Products on sale will include most items in the Animal Aid cruelty-free catalogue, plus fairtrade clothes and jewellery, cosmetics and skin care products, handmade chocolates, games for children, wildlife photographs and Devon grown olive trees.
But the event is not just about cruelty-free shopping. At the same time, we want visitors to enjoy a special day out, so we also have a fabulous vegan restaurant, great live music and face painting for youngsters. You can even enjoy a healing massage. And entrance is absolutely free!
