The purpose of the Ealing Animal Welfare Bazaar is to help relieve the suffering of animals throughout the world. The aim is also to encourage the recognition that animals, (like human beings), should be treated with compassion and respect.
There are usually over 30 groups/societies participating in the Bazaar, representing a variety of local, national and international animal welfare causes. The stalls offer a variety of goods for sale, gifts and bargains. This helps to raise funds for their work. Leaflets and information on the animal welfare work undertaken by the stallholders is available. There is also a fantastic programme of talks given by great guest speakers. Vegetarian and vegan refreshments are available throughout the day... so why not pop in for lunch.
Entrance is free. Why not pop in for lunch or refreshments?
Each year local dignitaries, the Mayor of Ealing, local Members of Parliament and our local MEPs are also invited to attend the Bazaar to view the work of the stallholders and to discuss animal welfare issues.
The Ealing Animal Welfare Bazaar was started in May 1978 and since then has been
an annual event, usually held on the first Saturday in March. Originally it was called
the Ecology and Animal Welfare Bazaar.
In 2010 it moved from being held at Ealing Town Hall to Hanwell Methodist Church,
which is still in the London Borough of Ealing.
