Nantwich’s first ever vegan fair will take place on Saturday 18th January 2020 (10am-4pm) at Nantwich Civic Hall.
With the veganism and plant-based movement becoming increasingly popular, more people than ever have signed up for ‘Veganuary’ this year.
Advocates of the meat-free diet cite numerous health benefits and environmental considerations as the reasoning behind its growing following.
Nantwich Vegan Fair, launching this January, is free to enter and aims to help people discover the huge array of products available for those adopting a vegan lifestyle.
The fair will boast over 50 stalls – including a range of vegan food stalls offering everything – from pizzas and kebabs to a hogless roast.
Organisers are also teasing a variety of deliciously tempting sweet treats, including: cakes, doughnuts, marshmallows and more!
As well as vegan food offerings there will be plenty of shopping opportunities too. Visitors can expect a range of handmade soaps and gifts, bags, cosmetics, candles and clothing.
A number of local and national charities will be exhibiting at the event in order to help raise awareness, including The Woodland Trust and Pasupathi Animal Sanctuary.
There will be inspirational talks throughout the day aiming to highlight the benefits of a vegan lifestyle as well as offering advice and tips.
In addition, a series of fun, hands-on workshops will be available for a small charge to provide practical lessons on how to make handmade soap, vegan samosas or hone new craft skills such as macramé and mandala rock painting.
Organiser, Tracey Warren told So Cheshire: “We very excited to bring a vegan fair to Nantwich and help show local people what veganism is actually about.
“There’s long been a misconception that vegans only eat grass and wood shavings and live some strange alternative lifestyle but in fact that couldn’t be further from the truth.
“We’d encourage anyone to come along with an open mind, sample the delights on offer and see how easy it can be to adopt a full or part, plant-based or vegan lifestyle.
“It’s free entry – what have you got to lose?”
