Back by popular demand for a sixth year, Compassionate Derby is a free ethical living event where everyone is welcome!
We’ll have more than 40 stalls at Compassionate Derby where you can find a wide range of cruelty-free food and lifestyle products, lots of free samples, and learn about the great work of many local and national charity and campaigning organisations for animals, people and planet.
If you're new to vegan food or are looking for fresh ideas, we have lots of food stalls for you. From fast food to artisan cakes, vegan meat substitutes to ethical sweets and chocolate, you'll be sure to find many things that tickle even the most discerning taste-buds.
In our free cookery demonstrations, you'll discover how easy it is to create tasty vegan food the whole family will love. Throughout the day, we'll also have informative talks on a range of ethical issues and campaigns.
Proceeds from this year's Compassionate Derby event will be going to our local animal sanctuary Brinsley Animal Rescue.
The incredible people at Brinsley Animal Rescue work tirelessly to help rescue and rehabilitate injured wildlife and rehome unwanted pets and animals used by the farming industry, such as chickens, sheep and pigs. The sanctuary is run by volunteers and receives no financial support other than donations from the public.
There will be a range of cruelty-free food and lifestyle products, lots of free samples, charity and campaigning stalls for animals, people and planet.
You won't know what you're missing until you give it a try. Luckily for you, there'll be lots of choice and lots of free samples!
