CROWDS flock to Vegfest each year for its eco-friendly vegetarian/vegan themed exhibits showcasing a wide selection of vegan food stalls, cookery demos and talks. With 10,000 visitors expected at this year’s show, there will be 160 stalls offering all manner of vegan products, from food and drink to clothes, body care, accessories and gifts.

Performance and entertainment are also a big part of Vegfest. This year the UK’s first Vegan Comedy Festival will take place at the event, as well as a Global Food Sustainability Conference on the Sunday.

Both days will also feature live music performances, a cinema and a kids’ area, ensuring that visitors of all ages are kept entertained all weekend.

With both the local and national elections coming up in May, Vegfest 2015 has some political features. As well as Caroline Lucas opening the event, there will be a Party Political Conference taking place on the Saturday, giving the major political parties the opportunity to explain their manifestos on environmental issues.
