THE VEGAN FESTIVAL OF BRITAIN
May 20th – June 10th 2017
Help us celebrate 40 years of Animal Aid with the world’s biggest vegan party!
ANIMAL AID IS 40 YEARS OLD IN 2017 AND YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN THE CELEBRATION!
We are proud of what we’ve achieved for animals over four decades – from an end to compulsory dissection for school students in our early days to recent undercover investigations that have exposed the brutal world of slaughterhouses and led to closures and prosecutions. Over the decades, we have had important victories against the pet industry, horse racing, shooting interests and vivisection laboratories – though there is still so much more to be done on so many different issues.

THE FUTURE IS VEGAN
Perhaps the greatest sign of our influence has been changing public attitudes and, in particular, the acceptance and rising popularity of veganism. As the 2016 IPSOS MORI poll commissioned by the Vegan Society indicates, there has been a 350% increase in the number of vegans over the last decade.
While this heartening progress has been down to the hard work of many individuals and organisations, we can justifiably claim to have played our part. From the beginning, we have championed veganism as the non-violent response to animal cruelty, environmental degradation and human poverty.
Therefore, to celebrate our anniversary, we felt our vegan campaign ought to be centre-stage. Our aim is to take the vegan message to new and exciting heights with the first Vegan Festival of Britain … and we’re asking for your support to make it happen.
