Viva! will bring the 31st Incredible Veggie Roadshow to Cambridge Guildhall, 3 Parsons Court, Wheeler Street, Cambridge, CB2 3QB on Saturday, February 4, 2012.

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 1,200 people visited the last show in Liverpool, so Viva! is anticipating large crowds in Cambridge! 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/cambridge. Visit this website for the full event details, or call 0117 944 1000.
