And it looks like it’s going to be amazing!
I really enjoyed the fair in 2013, which I wrote about here and this year it’s moved to a bigger venue at De Montfort University’s Queens Building, where the fair will run from 10am-4pm on 21st November, followed by an after-party at a nearby pub.
Here’s the poster:
There’s a good-looking mix of local and larger businesses, organisations and charities (and the charities usually have fancy calendars and chocolates and that kind of thing, which I like), a tempting array of purveyors of delicious things to shove in my gob (I cannot wait to see what Gelato Village bring to this fair!) and enough businesses who I’ve not encountered before for me to be intrigued.
I gather there’s going to be a family room which I heard and thought “sounds like it will be noisy and full of prams, I’ll stay away” but then I heard the person organising the room is planning all sorts of fun things, so I’ll probably have a good nosy around that as well.
I’m really starting to get excited about this event and it’s still over three weeks away! I hope there are a lot of visitors from Leicester and further afield because I really do think this city has a lot to offer vegans and those interested in eating more plant-based foods, and it gladdens my heart to see that we’re in the list of towns and cities putting on a fair this year.
There’s an events page on Facebook if you want to be reminded or there’s a community page where I think stall information is going to be added. Oh, and it’s on Meet-up under Leicester Vegans too, if you like to meet new people in a formal kind of way.
Hope to see you there! 🙂
I spent nothing today. That’s just as well, as it’s the Leicester Vegan Fair this Saturday, and it’d be nice to be able to buy a few things without going into arrears too much.
For anyone interested in coming to the fair, it’s being held at Friends Meeting House on Queens Road from 10.30 – 3.30 on Saturday 23 November. There will be music from local musicians and a lot of cake and other choice edibles by the sound of it. I think there may be free goodie bags for early attendees too, though don’t quote me on that.
