Animal Aid's annual cruelty-free Christmas Fayre is back at Kensington Town Hall on Sunday December 7th.
The fayre will feature more than 95 stands promoting ethical living and cruelty-free products – representing campaigning groups, animal sanctuaries, ethical companies and food outlets. Everything on sale will, of course, be vegan and non-animal tested, so it’s the ideal venue to stock up on all your Christmas gifts and have an informative and fun day out at the same time.
Catch up with friends in one of their vegan cafés, listen to inspiring talks by their guest speakers, take part in their ever popular Press ups competition, or just shop 'tll you drop!
Check out all the latest animal-friendly products and don’t forget to stock up on your supply of Christmas chocolates! Then for children there will be a special workshop and face painting for them to enjoy and a crèche to leave you free for an hour or so. Whatever, you do, you can be sure of meeting like-minded people in a congenial atmosphere. This is the event of the year, so don’t miss it!
