Northern Vegan Festival



Last weekend Ginge and I visited the Northern Vegan Festival in Manchester. I was so excited, this was the first Vegan event I'd been to, I couldn't wait to discover new foods and meet fellow animal lovers.

The turn out was fantastic! I couldn't believe how many people showed up, we had to queue for over an hour to get into the building, thankfully it was still sunny while we were outside.

The first thing we did when we got there was find some food! There were SO many food stalls with loads of options to choose from, I ended up buying some fantastic cupcakes from Captain Cakeman, they were the yummiest, lightest vegan cakes I've ever tried. Of course, I couldn't go home without buying some treats for my dogs too! I bought some marmite teddy bear treats from The Green Hound Bakery, which Holly & Effy gobbled up as soon as I got home.

Unfortunately I wasn't well that day so didn't get much chance to take pictures or to stay for any of the awesome sounding talks that they had. But I still had a great time and I'm excited for the next Northern Vegan Festival!

    1. Are you a Vegan Northerner too? You'll have to let me know if you're going to the next one and I'll come say hi :)

    1. I was so surprised and happy to see their stall! I thought they were based in America but I'm probably wrong. It was great to see loads of people were crowded round learning about what they do!

  5. I love Goody Good Stuff! The fizzy sweets are SO good. I found one store over that sells them and they're $5 a bag. Totally worth it thought. When I come back home to visit I might have to buy a ton in a bulk.

    1. Oh gosh! That's ridiculously expensive! They're usually around £1-£1.50 here so it might be worth you ordering from an english website.
      They're THE best vegan sweets! Most vegan sweets have a weird after taste or texture but I love these

  12. Wow! I bet that was amazing, instead of being at a restaurant and not having a lot of options, a whole group of vendors with vegan food!
