Animal Aid Christmas Fair 2021 – cancelled

With Covid still a concern in the UK, Animal Aid have very sadly decided not to hold the Christmas Festival at Kensington Town Hall (nor the Exeter Christmas Market) this year.

Hopefully the event will return in 2022 as a fun day out for all the family – a perfect excuse to indulge in a bit of vegan food while doing some shopping for the festive season!

Details from previous years:

There will be more than 100 stalls with a wonderful variety of animal-free and Eco-conscious clothing, shoes and belts, handmade or hemp fashion items. Indulge in the diverse selection of skincare products – perfect presents. And so much more on offer, from aromatherapy to wildlife art. There will be three vegan caterers, plus a huge selection of vegan cakes, beers, cheeses, confectionery and delicious savoury pies on offer.

There is also a crèche and children’s workshop.

Keep an eye on the Animal Aid website and Facebook page for the full programme.

There is now a dedicated Twitter account for Animal Aid’s Christmas Fairs and other events. Please follow  @AnimalAidFayre.

If you are interested in booking a stall, please email Iain

Free the MBR Beagles Demo at Home Office & Parliament

‼️JOIN US‼️ Next Monday 18th October outside of Westminster Hall in London. There will be Food By Veggies

Let’s make some noise for the EDM 175! A hearing to hold a scientific and public review into animal testing!

This is monumental in the animals rights movement! There has been NOTHING like this since 1906. We must ensure the government conduct this milestone review with integrity. The last time this was promised was before the 1997 Labour elections. More details from Free the MBR Beagles on facebook.

Some of you may remember Barry Horne, the activist who died on hunger strike in a bid to get the government to uphold their promise of a Royal Commission into vivisection. November 6th will mark the death of his 20 year anniversary.

Let’s unite and make sure animal research is abolished like it should have been back in 1906 ❤️

Stop the Arms Fair

The Defence & Security Equipment International arms fair (DSEI) sells everything from bullets to battleships, bringing together 1500 arms companies and representatives from over 100 countries. The results of DSEI are felt around the world as people are killed, economies are devastated, refugees are traumatised and peaceful protest is crushed.

When the world’s arms industry arrives in London in September, Stop the Arms Fair coalition will do all we can to stand in its way.

Tank the Arms Fair is a *big* day of action to resist and disrupt the opening of the DSEI arms fair on Tuesday 14th September.

Join us at ExCeL Centre West, near The Crystal, Seagull Lane (DLR: Royal Victoria)

Veggies Food is HereVeggies will provide campaign catering at the Day of Action

We hope you can join us.
