Now I’m not vegan, I’m actually vegetarian (although if I can easily substitute something animal-produced for something vegan, I will). However I was extremely excited to hear that Yorkshire Vegan Festival will be coming to Leeds in June! It is only the second time this annual festival has been held.
When: Saturday 13 June 2015 – 10am to 6pm.
Where: Leeds Town Hall
There will be 150 stalls offering vegan products such as cakes, chocolate, makeup, clothing, pet treats etc. There will also (most excitingly for me) be hot food stalls and an outdoor bbq! It will be so lovely to go to a bbq where I know I will be catered for. Usually I go wondering “will there be a veggie option? I hope they cook it on a separate bbq”… etc! I’m sure any fellow veggies or vegans will know how that feels.
The website says there will be lots of free samples and special offers. There will also be live music, a history of veganism exhibit and children’s activities.
Another thing that really appeals to me is there will be live cookery demonstrations. Hopefully hubby and I will find some food inspiration!
Admission is only £2 (which is ridiculously cheap if you ask me!) and all proceeds will go directly to animal welfare charities. There is no need to book ahead, just turn up and buy your ticket on the door.
Fingers crossed that my health holds out so I can go on the day, as it sounds right up my street 🙂 To be honest, I think even meat-eaters would probably enjoy the event, as some vegan food is delicious! My husband is a carnivore but will be coming along on the day!Never miss another post from me! Click below to follow me on Bloglovin. If RSS or social media are more your style, check out my sidebar!
