Countdown to our cruelty-free Christmas Festivals

Posted on the 8th November 2017

Bonfire Night may only just have passed, but it’s now only a few days until the first of Animal Aid’s not-to-be-missed cruelty-free seasonal events.

The South West Christmas Without Cruelty Festival takes place at Exeter Corn Exchange on Saturday 18 November, offering visitors a great day out and the perfect opportunity to purchase original, cruelty-free gifts and cards. There will be almost 50 stalls, featuring ethical traders and organisations that promote human, animal and environmental causes. Products on sale will include fair trade clothes, chocolates galore, local arts and crafts, cruelty-free cosmetics and a wide range of delicious vegan cakes.

But it’s not just about great and original shopping ideas. There will also be a superb choice of vegan savouries and sweets to enjoy. In addition to our unrivalled and great-value all-day restaurant, we have lots of cakes, pies, hotdogs, Cornish pasties, jams, chutneys and cookies to take away – all vegan! Other highlights include a tasting table with some of the latest vegan products to sample, a talk offering top tips for aspiring vegans, and lots of recipes and information to take home.

On the entertainment front, there will be music from the inspiring University World Music Choir and comedy, with a one-hour show by award-winning comedian Dave Chawner.

Entry to the festival is completely free.
