Event report on Nottingham Indymedia|
"Then on Sunday, lots more of the Veggies volunteers up in Nottingham set their alarms for 5:30 am to make it down to help at Animal Aid's Cruelty-Free Christmas Fayre at Kensington Town Hall. This is an annual ethical living event, that sees around 100 vegan and cruelty-free stalls take part, so absolutely no animal products and nothing tested on animals. There was a huge diversity of stalls, from charities and campaigning groups, through to food and drink, shoes, clothes, cosmetics, toiletries and gifts. It was quite a sensory overload of tastes, smells and sights, as well as there being a range of interesting talks throughout the day.
Volunteers were kept on their toes; there was huge demand for Veggies food all day, as swarms of visitors queued to order something from one of the most popular vegan caterers in the UK (the most popular maybe?)"

10am - 5pm at Kensington Town Hall, Hornton Street, London W8 (opposite High Street Kensington tube station).
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 our vegan cafés, listen to inspiring talks by our guest speakers, take part in our 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!
Here's a list of the organisations that are exhibiting at the fayre this year, along with their stall locations. (Stalls 1-66 are in the Great Hall.)

To get to this event Veggies will emit approx 160kg CO2 (total distance: 131 miles each way - route).
However by helping an estimated 500 people Eat Vegan we will “offset” 1000 kg CO2
If ONE customer goes Vegan For Life, they will save 1.5 tonnes CO2 every year, as well as saving 4022 animals lives, and enabling all the world’s peoples to receive a Fair Share of the world’s resources.
