Swansea’s Vegan Festival comes to the Brangwyn Hall

Swansea Vegan Festival 2016 will take place at The Brangwyn Hall this summer.  To be held on Saturday 16th July, this will be the third festival held by local organisation Swansea Vegfest. After the unprecedented success of last year’s festival, it is set to be their biggest and best event yet. Doors open at 11am with the festival running into the night. Entry is £1, with under 12s free.

There will be around 70 different businesses and organisations exhibiting on the day, covering everything from delicious hot and cold food; sweet treats; ethical fashion; health and beauty and animal welfare. There will also be various talks, cooking demonstrations and discussion groups taking place throughout the day, as well as a kids’ zone with activities. Attendees can then party into the night with live music, films and a bar from 6pm.

It consists of a handful of passionate volunteers who are on a mission to educate and support those interested in a vegan lifestyle and raise awareness of animal welfare issues. Organiser and local business owner Karen McCloy says: “The vegan scene in Swansea and South Wales is very much part of a growing trend, and we are confident that this is going to be our most successful event yet. We are thrilled to have so many local, independent businesses involved in the festival and we will be showcasing the wide range of products they have to offer – particularly when it comes to food! We’ve got all sorts, including Indian, Mexican, Middle Eastern, pizza, raw foods and cakes. There will be something for everyone on the day, whether you are a vegetarian or vegan, a foodie or just looking for a fun day out. You won’t be disappointed!”Photo3
