We are getting really spoilt down here at the moment as over the next couple of weeks we have two amazing Christmas Festivals to enjoy and ethically spend our pocket money at.
First up is a yearly favourite of ours; The Animal Aid Christmas Without Cruelty Festival. It takes place tomorrow at the Exeter Corn Exchange slap bang in the city centre. This year there are more than 40 stalls, featuring ethical traders and organisations that promote human, animal and environmental causes. Products on sale will include fair trade clothes, vegan chocolate, local arts and crafts, cruelty free cosmetics, quality bric-a-brac, delicious cakes and vegan beers.
In addition, a visit would not be the same if you don't indulge in the delicious food on offer throughout the day from local caterers Fairfoods. It is normally our first port of call and be prepared to be dazzled and confused by the amazing choices on offer. No belly is big enough to help ease the decision making process of what to have.
To check out full details of the Exeter festival go to Animal Aid's website or tune into the Festival's Facebook event page.
If the excitement wasn't enough, in a couple of weeks time and closer to home we have the anticipation of the Cornwall Vegan Festival. Truro on Saturday 5th December is definitely the place to be! More details on this will follow soon but if you really cannot wait any longer, check out the Facebook link above and remember to pop it in your diary now.
