Celebrate Veganuary by visiting your local vegan festivals

11th January 2019

As Veganuary is well and truly underway and we look forward to a full month of tasty vegan food and recipes, socialising and inspirations for staying vegan or eating more vegan foods, and in this short blog, we preview the vegan events awaiting everybody across the UK.

Vegan events are great places for meeting like-minded people and sampling new vegan products, and learning more about the various aspects of living vegan, thus making it easier to remain vegan in the long term – we would encourage everyone to support their local vegan events, be there and invite your friends to go as well.
