EUROPE's largest vegetarian and vegan campaigning group are to host a fantastic roadshow in Truro this summer, celebrating the very best of veggie living.

Viva! will bring the 29th Incredible Veggie Roadshow to the Boscawen Street Foyer and bar area of The Hall for Cornwall on Saturday, July 30.

The Incredible Veggie Roadshow promises to showcase the very best in veggie and vegan lifestyles, from food and cookery, health and nutrition, to clothing and accessories, brought to you by dozens of stall holders and businesses from across the UK. Entry is free.

Juliet Gellatley, founder & director or Viva!, says: “We are delighted to be bringing the Incredible Veggie Show to Cornwall for the first time. It promises to be a fantastic day out for all the family, featuring the very best in all things cruelty-free! Come along and find out everything you need to know about going veggie or vegan, or simply stock up on all your veggie favourites under one roof. There will be something for everyone, from the veggie curious to the seasoned vegan.

There will be a wide selection of vegan dishes and products available for sampling, a programme of talks and cookery demonstrations, nutritional advice and information, plus Viva! and Vegetarian and Vegan Foundation merchandise and campaigns resources.

More than 2,300 people visited the last show in Brighton in 2010, so Viva! is anticipating large crowds in Cornwall's capital! Doors open from 10.30am - 4pm.
Further details of cookery demonstrations, hot food tastings, sponsors and talks will be announced soon on www.viva.org.uk/truro. Visit this website for the full event details, or call 0117 944 1000.
