Let’s Take a Closer Look at What’s Happening at the Festival…

Shopping from Stalls
Looking for vegan, natural, ethically produced products for your shopping basket? With a range of 40 stalls, this festival will not disappoint the shopper in you. Plus, most stallholders are small businesses. And you know what happens when you buy something from a small business – someone does a happy dance! You can buy anything and everything from cosmetics to shoes and from yoga leggings to crystals. We would highly recommend that you visit LuxEra‘s stall to buy all-natural luxury Greek soaps -soaps made with unique ingredients that have never been used before such as 24k Gold, Caviar Elixir, Black truffle and more. Another must-visit stall is Hasta Collection where you can find an exquisite collection of soul-pleasing jewelry made with pure silver. See the list of stalls here.
Yummy Vegan Food
When all that Yoga and shopping makes you hungry, you can treat yourself to yummy vegan food at the festival. Food stallholders will prepare a feast of vegan food such as burgers, pizzas, Indian food, Greek food, Carribean food etc.
Have you ever tried the famous dance style that emerged from the Hindi language movies in India? There are two Bollywood dance classes scheduled at the festival. Join and enjoy! Suitable for absolute non-dancers!
If all of the above wasn’t enough already – the festival will also feature live music performance by a lovely vegan artist, Molly Chinner.

The entry is free to the stall areas. All classes can be attended by buying a day ticket that only costs £6 (if purchased before Aug 31st & £8 thereafter). Isn’t that amazing! So much for just £6. Free entry to classes for all accompanying children.
