Grab a bite or two at vegan festival
After a roaring success last year, the Maidstone Vegan Festival is back this weekend, and promises to be bigger and better.
The event on Saturday will feature talks about how veganism can support animal rights, contribute to personal health, and link to other movements, including feminism.
There will also be a dedicated children’s area including books, games and face painting, and an educational area where visitors can find out more about how simple changes can lead to a vegan lifestyle.
And if that isn’t enough for you, there will also be seven live acts performing through the day at the Union Street Methodist Church. There will also be more than 40 stalls for visitors to peruse, with food from a range of global cuisines, handmade homewares and artwork, and beauty and healthcare products.
Felicity Stone, organiser, said: “Last year’s festival was a wonderful surprise, with more than a thousand people through the doors. We had no idea a vegan event would be so popular.
“We’re overjoyed to be back for a second year, so bring your family and friends for what’s sure to be a fun day out.”
Entry at the door is £3 per person, free for under 16s.
