Everything you ever wanted to know about going, being or staying vegan will be available at the Coventry Viva! Vegan Festival. This festival is organised by vegan charity Viva! and entry is just £3 (under 16s free). A whole range of delicious food tastings and all the advice you could ever want on changing your diet or improving your health is available for no additional cost.

 

A copy of Everyone’s Going Vegan magazine (worth £4) will be given free to everyone attending.

With over 80 stalls (including 12 outdoor food vendors) this festival will be a brilliant and welcoming family day out. There will be vendors selling everything from vegan food to cruelty-free cosmetics and Coventry’s very own vegan brewer ‘The Twisted Barrel’ bringing a fully stocked bar. The festival also boasts an impressive schedule of cookery demos, talks and even a bouncy castle for children!

This is the first festival Viva! has held in Coventry and the event expects to attract over 2000 attendees. Increasing interest in veganism, combined with a high number of stall holders and talks, indicate that this festival will be a roaring success.

Viva! founder and director Juliet Gellatley says: “Interest in veganism has continued to soar globally and shows no signs of slowing down. Viva!’s vegan festivals are a fantastic way of bringing people together and showcasing the benefits of a vegan lifestyle. Regardless of dietary choices we want everyone to come along and see just how wonderful vegan food can be. This event will be a fun, interesting and delicious day out for all the family to enjoy!”

This event follows the success of the 50 roadshows the charity has held across the UK since October 2004, which have been attended by more than 100,000 people. A third of those attending the shows were meat eaters looking for help in cutting down their meat and dairy intake.
