Grab a bite or two at ve­gan fes­ti­val

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - NEWS -

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.
