After a 2 year break we are reviving the Wimbledon Common Walk for Freedom and this year it will coincide with the Stables Open Day, with lots of family fun and fun dog shows. Come and join us for our walk and then stay on to enjoy a day on beautiful Wimbledon Common; your canine companions could even enter one or more of the dog shows.
Our walk will raise funds to help us adopt one of 130 bears on a bear farm in Nanning, Southern China, which is being converted into a sanctuary by Animals Asia. The funds we raise for our bear will directly help with the conversion as this will provide her with all she needs for the first two years of being looked after by Animals Asia.
Be part of the change and walk with us for their FREEDOM
on Sunday 14 September at 11.00am (more details below)

If you haven’t met little Smudge yet, the last moon bear cub to be born in captivity on the Nanning farm, have a look at the little video here. Luckily she will never know the tortures of bile extraction.
Due to unforeseen circumstances we unfortunately have to postpone our Dionysus event. We hope to set a new date and possibly new venue very soon and will obviously announce it as soon as details are available. It will probably be in October and most probably still in North or North West London.
In the meantime we have merchandise and awareness stalls and other events in the London area, so please keep an eye on our Facebook page if you are on Facebook or check our events page here regularly.
We look forward to meeting many of you this year, old and new supporters.
If you would like to get involved with our support group and help us raise funds and awareness in the London area, please do get in touch. To make it easier, so that you don’t even have to go to another page, I have posted a contact form below :)
Come and join us for this dramatic, imaginative, exotic and tragic one man show in the garden of a private residence in Hampstead on Saturday 5 July at 3.00pm
The event is sponsored by the Co-operative, Hampstead and all proceeds will go towards Animals Asia’s conversion of a bear bile farm in Nanning, Southern China, into a sanctuary. For those of you who haven’t read about this amazing and unique project yet, please visit Animals Asia’s website to read how the lives of the 130 bears at the bear bile farm are going to be transformed.
The ticket price of £15 includes supper and wine
Dionysus was a Greek God like no other. He loved all of nature and to him it was the essence of life and death.
He hated conformity. He worshipped wildness and liberty.
Dionysus had a vision of a true wilderness with ivy, wild flowers and vines covering the whole of Greece and where no animal would be in chains.
The woman folk would join him on the mountain top, all drinking copious amounts of wine through the day and night, and dancing barefoot through the wild, mysterious forest.
He was brought up by the nymphs so he had a great understanding and passion of all things feminine and free
