East Midlands Vegan Festival 2013 in Lincoln

Lincoln saw the biggest vegan event in the East Midlands take centre stage at Lincoln Drill Hall on October 12 with talks, performances and food and goods stalls.

Entry to the festival was free and guests enjoyed a variety of treats in aid of Vegan Outreach Lincoln and East Midlands.

Among the huge variety of stalls at the festival was award-winning Ms Cupcake, designer Wills Vegan Shoes and even vegan chocolate doggy treats.

For the kids (and adults) the festival welcomed the Cebeebies actor Dominic Berry who performed his show The Dragon who Hates Poetry. The after party also saw Berry perform his stand up material as well.

Event organiser Ruth Dredge said: “We hope that people will consider veganism and realise how easy and tasty living a compassionate lifestyle can be.

“There are lots of vegan curious people in Lincoln, however it is sad that we do not have a fully vegan restaurant or cafe.

“We are very enthused by the first vegan pop-up restaurant that is coming to Lincoln on the evening of October 26 and Revival, Sincil Street.”
