With the interest of adopting a plant-based diet or vegan lifestyle increasing every day, Peterborough’s Vegetarian and Vegan group felt now would be a great opportunity to host Peterborough’s first ever Vegan Christmas Festival.
Promoted under their new festival brand, Thrive, the event will be held at the Fleet, Fletton on Sunday, November 25, 2018 from 10am until 5pm.
People can expect to purchase a variety of goodies including cruelty-free cosmetics, plant-based food, scrumptious cakes, eco-friendly essentials, handcrafted gifts, vegan cheeses and so much more. There will also be interactive stalls hosted by local animal movement groups, a photo-booth, outdoor food trucks and a kid’s festive craft corner. Throughout the day there will be multiple workshops covering topics such as vegan pregnancy, plant-based bodybuilding and the use of plants in medicine.
Completely inclusive, the city’s first big vegan event appeals to, vegans, vegetarians, those transitioning and those who are just curious.
A group spokesman said: ‘We are incredibly excited to bring not only the city’s first vegan Christmas Festival, but the city’s first big vegan event full-stop, to vegans, vegetarians, those transitioning and those who are curious. There will be speakers, workshops and we have space for more than 50 stalls.’
‘Interest has already been high, but there is still time to apply to book a stall – all products sold on the day must be 100% vegan and we are trying to make the event as eco-friendly as possible too.’
“We want THRIVE to be all-inclusive event that connects our city’s people together. We hope that this will be the first of many Peterborough based vegan events of this scale. We cant wait to see you there!”
It will be free to enter and a totally not-for-profit venture. There is a suggested donation of £2–£3 to cover costs – anything left over will be donated to a vegan charity to be determined.
