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
Veggies Catering Campaign will be catering at the Fair. Veggies are a volunteer-led, community-based, social enterprise, promoting vegan catering and supporting campaigns for humans, other animals and the environment.
Volunteer with Veggies after 10am to help with serving teas, cakes or pasties. Even one hour’s volunteering would enable one of the core crew to have a break to look around the fair. If you would like to help, contact us or find Veggies on facebook

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. [references]
