VEGANS will find much to savour in Stratford at the weekend.
The first ever vegan fair – showcasing an array of vegan-friendly food including cakes, cheese, and chocolate – takes place at the town hall on Sunday December 10 from 10.30am to 4pm.
Ethical gifts will be easy to find among a range of products with animal and cruelty-free ingredients, including cosmetics, toiletries and clothing.
Fast growing interest in veganism has prompted organisers at Midlands Vegan Campaigns (MVC) to step up their campaign this year which has seen one event every month in a West Midlands location.
Founder Kevin White said: “Veganism is really taking off in the UK, with new stats showing that over half a million people now follow a vegan lifestyle.
“For many, vegan events are the best starting point if you’re vegan curious, an aspiring vegan or already enjoying the benefits of the lifestyle.
“At a recent festival in October, people who eat meat and fish made up 24 per cent of the 6,000 visitors.
“There are now dozens of vegan fairs and festivals springing up across the country, so anyone interested will find them more accessible than ever before.
“Every town needs a Vegan Fair, including Stratford.”
