Join World Day for Laboratory Animals 2019!
Let’s make Saturday 27 April 2019 the biggest march for laboratory animals the UK has seen in recent years.
It will take place in Oxford – home to a university experimenting on the largest number of animals in Britain.
Each year inside British laboratories, around 4 million animals are experimented on. Every 8 seconds, one animal dies. Included are experiments on more than 600,000 animals. With over half of all animal experiments now taking place in universities it is crucial we speak out to end animal suffering and progress beyond wasteful, costly and cruel research.
Guest speakers throughout the day will be raising awareness about poor and cruel science behind animal experimentations and curiosity-driven research. There will vegan food and campaign stands, a media presence, exciting and creative stunts.
After the success of Stroud and Cirencester Vegan Fairs in 2018 we are so excited to bring one of our Vegan Fairs to neighbouring Cotswold town in the beautiful Witney Corn Exchange.
Join us for a day in celebration of all things plant-based including an impressive line up of vegan traders and businesses showcasing the best local and national vegan products for you to try and buy as well as full programme of topical talks, demos and workshops for you to get involved with throughout the day.

The Oxford Vegan-Market will be jam-packed with stalls selling a huge a variety of vegan products. We’ll have everything from amazing vegan food to luxury vegan cosmetics and from ethical clothing to interesting charities.
We’re also arranging for a nearby pub to host a mini vegan beer festival on the same day so stay tuned for more info on that!
The event will be held in the fantastic Town Hall (right in the centre of town) and will open to the public from 10:30am on Sunday 21st January and will close at 4:30pm. Tickets will be available on the door and will cost £2 for adults and will be free for kids under 12. We expect the venue to get very busy during the day so please come along early so you don’t miss out.
The first 100 people to arrive will get some FREE vegan goodies, all the more reason to come down early.

This all day vigil gives us a chance to promote Compassion by being present at the slaughterhouse and engaging with the public there and in nearby Witney where we will also have lunch at a vegan cafe.
We can also share ideas about the ways we can engage with the public at the vigils.
