Kick off the festive season at the Animal Aid's 2005 Compassionate Christmas show!
Posted 15 November 2005
Sunday December 4th at Kensington Town Hall.
'Tis the season to be jolly and spread peace to all creatures on earth! Come to the Animal Aid Compassionate Christmas show and you'll see how easy it is to 'eat, drink, spend and be merry with a completely clear conscience.
Ahead of next week's key decision, national campaign group Animal Aid launches a revealing new report, called Lethal Business: the use of animals in toxicity testing. This lays bare the scientific shortcomings of using animals for safety tests and the resulting risk to public health of such a policy.
Animal charities, 'green' companies, campaign groups, ethical traders, and performers all come together under one roof at this annual event. There will be 75 stands offering a wide assortment of goods, including cosmetics, toiletries, fashion and footwear, wines and chocolates, along with Christmas staples such as cards, calendars and wrapping paper. Children can take part in activity workshops, or marvel at our magician and contortionist, and when mums and dads have shopped till they've dropped, delicious veggie food, or neck massage, will help recharge the batteries.
Straight from competing in the Mr. England Bodybuilding Contest Robbie the Vegan Muscle Man will be posing and giving a talk on bodybuilding. He's living proof that there's nothing wimpy or weedy about being vegan! Anyone feeling brave can compete in a press ups competition.
A highlight of the day will be the celebrity auction, with a selection of unique memorabilia going under the hammer. Don't miss this chance to pick up one-of-a-kind items from stars including Joanna Lumley, Tony Banks, Coldplay, Athlete, Ferne Cotton, Bill Bailey and Van Morrison.
Being an ethical consumer doesn't mean you have to miss out and what better excuse do you need to spend, spend, spend than the knowledge that all your money is going to support good causes.
