Weston’s first vegan fair will visit the Tropicana, in Marine Parade, this summer.

The event will offer people the opportunity to explore ‘plant-based living’.

From cheese to cakes, and chocolate to savoury treats, the event will offer a delicious day out to enjoy food, drinks, clothes, cosmetics and culture.

There will also be talks and workshops, activities for children to take part in, and nutritional advice available.

Co-organiser Jo Harrington said: “There is a huge increase in the amount of people reducing the amount of meat and dairy they eat.

“More and more people are enjoying the benefits a plant-based diet entails.

“In Somerset there is already a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants offering delicious plant-based food.

“Times are changing and we are very proud to be a part of that change.”

The event will run from 10am-3pm on August 5 and costs £3 on the door.

Entry is free for under 14s who arrive with a paying adult.
