Catfest returns to Beckenham Place Mansion, a Georgian mansion in a south London park, after two successive sell-out editions. A boutique festival created out of love for cats and to help animals in need, the two-day event will bring together stylish and quirky cat accessories with 50+ exhibitors, music, books, art, vegan street food and cat-themed cocktails and feature inspiring talks from bestselling authors and animal experts, including TV star Rory the Vet, John Rendall (Christian the Lion), Diana Darke (The Last Sanctuary in Aleppo), award-winning wildlife photojournalist Britta Jaschinski, Kimberlie Hamilton (Rebel Cats) and Nick Harding (Tale of Two Kitties). Alongside adoptable rescue kittens in two mansion ballrooms, more celebrity cats will be joining the event this summer, including Los Angeles’s superstar Sunglass Cat, Starina supermodel kitty, Pixie Adventure Cat, London therapy kitten Quita, Barry the Bengal, Rene & Freya, the Travelling Menagerie and other feline influencers.
Part of the proceeds will benefit ERHAM RESCUE to help sterilise, treat and feed and rescue street cats and kittens in desperate need.
