Despite an abundance of meat in Scotland's larder, Glasgow has earned the title of vegan capital of the UK, and will host vegan festival Vegfest at the SECC on December 5-6.
The festival is part of ‘The Only Way is Ethics’, a Glasgow-based initiative including several different events around Glasgow in the week leading up to the festival. The venture is all about promoting a vegan lifestyle - but meat eaters needn't feel alienated. The festival will encourage and inspire people to make those smaller changes too, such as simply eating less meat.
The festival will have around 120 stalls with exhibitors showcasing everything from animal charities to vegan cupcakes,a restaurant with an all-vegan menu plus 12 other caterers, a variety of talks on areas including nutrition and lifestyle, a health summit and an activists' summit, vegan cookery demos, information display areas, entertainment, live music and much more.
No matter if you’re a vegan, vegetarian or are simply curious about how you can eat less meat - Vegfest Scotland is sure to be an exciting and inspiring event.
