Well what a start to Vegan 2019!


Veganuary had people signing up every 8 seconds! M&S launched 60 new vegan products, Sainsbury’s another 25 and a shout out to Greggs for their witty repartee during the introduction of their vegan sausage roll. (And a big shout out to Poundbakery for being the OG)


We have been very busy on the festival front and so far, have 19…yes 19 (!!!) Vegan festivals confirmed up and down the UK – from Dorset to Glasgow and many places in between.


We are so excited to kick off the season in Essex on Saturday 2nd March at the Colchester Charter Hall. Our last event in Colchester (November 2018) was a total success. We welcomed back our regular stall holders along with some very excited newbies. It was a great crowd, an amazing vibe, with people of all ages and backgrounds – all coming together for a celebration of veganism.

How liberating to shop freely, with no need to check labels before you buy. To drool over and feast upon sweets, savouries and an array of the most tantalising international cuisine; to watch vegan cooking demonstrations; take a yoga class; buy a new vegan Tee…bamboo cutlery set…the list of products is too long to list…and to attend a potentially life-changing inspirational talk. We even had a free sample table stocked with oh soooo delicious, Bute Island Sheese!

With that being said, what do we have in store for you at our next Essex Vegan Festival?
