Catfest launches first ever cat-lover event in London


Catfest has teamed up with Almo Nature to bring together a thrilling and original summer festival, with cat-related products, soulful and inspiring talks from bestselling writers and animal experts, while helping cats in need. 


The event will take place on Saturday July 14 at the Oval Space in central London.


Cat enthusiasts can come in fancy dress, meet Instagram feline superstars, browse through the pop-up Kitty Lit & Art Corner with finely curated cat art and books.  


At the Mews Market out on the terrace, sample fabulous vegan street food and kitty-shaped cakes and cupcakes; meet and hang out with other cat lovers over cat-themed cocktails from the vintage airstream Pussycat Lounge to the sounds of Sixties and indie classics from the Beatles and the Stones to the Libertines and the Pixies; play cat bingo or have a tarot-card reading from Harper’s Bazaar’s go-to psychic Jacqui Cosham aka Mystic Mog. Take part in raffle and competition for the best costume for a chance to win fabulous prizes for yourself and your kitty while helping Moroccan street cats.


Self-described cat ladies and cat men won’t be able to resist the Meow Parlour. Catfest will donate £2 from every ticket to ACE Dog, Cat & Kitten Rescue (adoptions and home-checks will be facilitated by our beneficiary charities), and a charitable project of TICA. Additional funds from raffle and competition will go to Erham to help Moroccan street cats.


For every adoption, Almo Nature will give a month’s supply of free food; plus festival goers will get swag bags for their cats at home. Almo Nature, the pioneer of human-grade pet food started by animal lover Pier Giovanni Capellino, is the first-ever brand “owned by the animals”, which means that all profits generated from the sale of Almo Nature products are used to support cats and dogs in European shelters and rescue centres and wildlife projects through the Fondazione Capellino.
