Nailsworth helps to celebrate Animal Aid’s Vegan Festival of Britain

Nailsworth’s shops and cafes will be taking part in a national celebration of cruelty-free food and living by highlighting their vegan options and produce during Animal Aid’s Vegan Festival of Britain (20th May – 20th June 2017).VFOBlogo-992x561

A list of participating venues

A list of participating stores and restaurants/cafes can be found above.

On Saturday 27th May 2017, several Gloucestershire Vegan Group members held a stall at Nailsworth Farmers Market, to publicise the Vegan Festival of Britain and promote cruelty-free living. Lots of people stopped by to sample vegan treats, chat to our friendly crew, and pick-up a leaflet promoting veganism. We’re grateful to Nailsworth’s very own vegan dining spot Asparagasm, who kindly donated some delicious treats for market-goers to try.

Nailsworth is a fantastically vegan-friendly town to visit, with the world’s first vegan-society certified football club Forest Green Rovers and the vibrant Asparagasm, a vegan eatery, with a workshop/kitchen space running cookery lessons. There are two independant health food shops selling vegan ingredients (which can sometimes be hard to find in supermarkets); Shiny Goodness and Green Spirit. All of this packed into a small Gloucestershire market town. If you stop by during The Vegan Festival of Britain, be sure to try out some of the participating venues.

You may also spot the vegan window display on show at The Yellow Lighted Bookshop, a perfect place to stock-up on a new vegan cookbook to inspire some cruelty-free culinary adventures in the kitchen.

 

If you’re curious about veganism, and want to know more, here’s a copy of our leaflet, giving a brief intro to veganism, and some great reasons to give it a try.
