Exeter’s increasingly popular South West Christmas Without Cruelty Festival has been praised as ‘the best event of its kind’ amongst the growing number of green and cruelty-free fairs and festivals held around the country. After his visit last year, leading poet Benjamin Zephaniah added that ‘Animal Aid’s South West Christmas Without Cruelty Festival is very special. The food is great, the goodies are great, and the place is full of loving, compassionate people’.

Over the last five years, the eco-friendly event has become one of Exeter’s leading seasonal attractions, with shoppers taking the unique opportunity to buy their Christmas gifts and cards from companies and charities that are trying to make the world a kinder place. Every purchase made goes towards a good cause or ethical company.

The Festival returns to Exeter Corn Exchange on Saturday 24 November with its winning mix of cruelty-free shopping, great food and special events.

This year’s visitors will find a wide range of attractive products, including cruelty-free cosmetics and skin care products, handmade chocolates, cakes, calendars and crafts, fairtrade jewellery and textiles, children’s games, wildlife photography, pottery, and Palestinian-made oils sold to provide poverty relief for the local population.

But the event is not only about Christmas shopping. According to organiser Mark Gold:

‘We also want visitors to enjoy a fun day out. We have a fabulous restaurant, wonderful world music songs from Crediton Community choir and face painting for kids. And in keeping with the ethos of the Festival, admission is still absolutely free.’
