The biggest annual vegan festival in the UK (outside of London & Bristol) returns to Wolverhampton on Saturday 30th October 2010 and looks set to knock the spots off last year’s event!!
The West Midlands Vegan Festival will offer all you need for healthy, cruelty-free, eco-friendly living. You don’t have to be vegan to attend, everyone is welcome! Come and see why people are increasingly adopting a vegan lifestyle.
There’ll be over 80 stalls offering a huge range of goodies, including cosmetics, clothing, footwear, healthfood, books, gifts and lots of free recipes, nutritional factsheets, health magazines etc. Also a feast of food served up by the best vegan caterers from across the UK, 4 mouth-watering cookery demos, 12 exciting/inspiring talks, kids activities, an all vegan bar, a press-up competition, speed meeting session, an action packed line up of live entertainment from start to finish AND an After Party till midnight!!
There will be free food samples galore, special offers on many stalls and a free goodie bag for the first 200 visitors through the door!
Famous vegan beauty, Roxie Ghawam-Shahidi — who plays ‘Leyla Harding’ from TV’s Emmerdale will open the festival at 11am and she will present the UK Vegan Awards on stage at 1pm!
This is the third year the event has been staged in Wolverhampton. The festivals in 2008 and 2009 each attracted over 1,000 people and the Wulfrun Hall was packed out all day. That’s why the 2010 festival is taking place in the much larger Civic Hall.
Whether you want to try a new pair of non-leather shoes before you buy them, gorge yourself on the fantastic feast, learn how to be a healthy vegan, buy cruelty-free gifts for Xmas or chill out with friends enjoying the finest organic, vegan beer whilst listening to some great performers — you can do it all at the West Midlands Vegan Festival.
No other vegan event with so many attractions has ever taken place anywhere north of London. This is truly exciting stuff and you can be there for just £1 admission! (under 16’s free)
From 11am-5pm at the Wolves Civic, North Street, Wolverhampton.
For many more details of all of the attractions at this event, please check out the website www.midlandsveganfestival.org.uk and you can follow updates on Facebook, Twitter, Myspace etc.
They look forward to seeing you on the day!
