The North West Vegan Festival will be a huge vegan event in Lancashire with 115 stalls! It will take place at 2 close together venues on Saturday June 7, 2014, from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. at Lancaster Town Hall, Dalton Square, Lancaster, LA1 1PJ, and from 11 a.m. until midnight at the Gregson Centre, 33, Moorgate, Moor Lane, Lancaster, LA1 3PY.
On May 12, 2012, one of the organisers of the Festival organised a very successful vegan fair at another venue in Lancaster which 900 people came to, despite the fact that it was not publicised heavily outside of Lancaster and nearby Morecambe and Preston, so as this much bigger version of that fair will be publicised heavily across the North with far more leaflets, we expect a much larger turnout than 900 people.
There will be 115 stalls at the 2 venues (105 at the Town Hall, and 10 at the Gregson Centre), as well as a vegan cafe at the Town Hall and at The Gregson: cookery demos, talks, and children’s activities, a vegan beer and wine festival, films in a 26 seat cinema, vegan speed dating and meeting and a special extra vegan menu, which is a vegan friendly community centre that already sells vegan pizzas and other vegan meals.
Admission is £1.50 which includes entry to both the Town Hall and the Gregson Centre, and all proceeds from the Festival will go to the registered charity International Aid for the Protection and Welfare of Animals.
Please get in touch if you would like to book a stall for £30 or to sponsor the Festival (leaflets and posters have been printed but logos can be put onto the website for £25), if you would like to do a talk or cookery demo, if you would like to volunteer on the day, or if you would just like more information.
