For those Londoners unable to get down to Dover this weekend to protest against live exports, a trip to Animal World represents an alternative means (you won't get arrested) of registering your outrage at cruelty to animals such as Nat the Beagle (right). Billed as "the biggest exhibition of animal welfare groups and companies ever seen in Europe", the show, which coincides with Lab Animal Week, includes displays from Animal Aid, Beauty Without Cruelty and the National Anti-Vivisection Society, together with family activities and a celebrity auction. And if your wardrobe needs a boost, look no further than the cruelty-free catwalk where models will be highlighting the latest trends in Vegetarian Shoes and the baffling "must-have customised" sheepskin-look jacket.
