From small beginnings a decade ago, Animal Aid’s South West Christmas Without Cruelty Festival has grown to become one of the region’s most popular seasonal events, and this year it celebrates its 10th anniversary with a special show and a special guest: leading comedian Sara Pascoe.

Sara will be speaking at the Festival at 12pm.

The unique appeal of the South West Christmas Without Cruelty Festival is that it gives visitors the chance to purchase original gifts and cards exclusively from ethical traders or charities working to reduce violence to people, animals and the planet. Stalls include fair trade goods, clothes and chocolates, cruelty-free cosmetics, oils, herbs, local crafts and plenty of vegan food and beers.

Other special features this year include free gifts for the first 250 visitors, and a performance from Exeter World Music Choir at 2.15pm. And, as always, we have our wonderful all-day vegan café, serving both snacks and main meals.
