The hugely popular Catfest, a festival which celebrates all things feline, will be returning to Beckenham later this year.

Following two successive sell-out editions, Catfest will return to Beckenham Place Mansion this July with more fabulous celebrity cats, exhibitors, music, talks, workshops, vegan street food and kitty cocktails.

Alongside adoptable rescue kittens and feline influencers, including Los Angeles’ superstar Sunglass Cat, the festival features an art show from the Society of Feline Artists, storytelling and inspiring talks from renowned writers and animal experts, including TV star Rory the Vet, John Rendall (Christian the Lion) and Diana Darke (The Last Sanctuary in Aleppo), Kimberlie Hamilton (Rebel Cats) and award-winning wildlife photographer Britta Jaschinski.

Last summer’s festival enabled the beneficiary charity, ERHAM Rescue, along with several international vets to sterilise, treat and feed hundreds of sick and starving animals, as well as rehome dozens of cats and kittens in the UK and Morocco.

This year’s Catfest will take place over two days in July (Saturday 25 and Sunday 26). To pre-book your tickets or find out more visit:
