Newcastle-under-Lyme is to welcome the return of a Vegan food festival.
The Summer Vegan Festival will take place on Sunday 3 July, and stallholders will be selling everything from fashion to food to pet products, with the festival being a celebration of plant-based living.
It’s the third time Newcastle-under-Lyme Markets has played host to the Festival which is again being organised by Stoke-on-Trent Animal Rights.
Nick Moore, Town Centre Officer for Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, said: “We’ve really enjoyed working with organiser, Vicky, and the Stoke-on-Trent Animal Rights team to bring the Vegan Festivals to Newcastle-under-Lyme Market. The ecological awareness that they promote and their educational talks during the day have a positive impact on the many visitors to our town.
“This exciting, contemporary market event sees a large increase in high street footfall every time it’s held and adds to the diverse range of markets we offer. We now have an award-winning Castle Artisan Market, weekly General and Antique Markets, Record Fairs, Bring Your Dog Greyhound Gap Market, Charity Market and more exciting event markets planned.”
Stallholders will be offering hot and cold food, crafts, jewellery and skincare products, dog
treats and much more for the summer event that will take place on The Stones between
10am – 3pm.
