Veganism in later life to be explored in Mature Zone at VegfestUK London 2018

Veganism in later life to be explored in Mature Zone at VegfestUK London 2018

2018-09-11 
| by Editor | Posted in VegfestUK London 2018

V… for Life begins at 50! The Mature Zone is the go-to place for all aspects of veganism in later life.

With pay-as-you-feel vegan refreshments and drinks on top of seating.

Proudly curated and hosted by V for Life

 

Feeling the effects of overcrowding? Why not sit back and enjoy a cuppa in the Mature Zone at VegfestUK London?

Nab a free copy of VfL's magazine, enjoy an attractive array of vegan bakes, and listen in to presentations on topics such as vegan travel, eating out – and even how inclusive the movement is to older vegans.

Through popular demand, V for Life has expanded the number of veggie socials, which are the perfect opportunity to meet like-minded souls.

Refreshments here are offered on a 'pay as you feel' basis, and any profits will be used to support the charity's work.

There'll also be plenty of free information to hand about:

  • VfL's vegan grants
  • Vegan dinners to your door
  • Care homes that care
  • Volunteering opportunities: How to be a friend to your elders.

Talks and workshops will run from 11am on Saturday and Sunday.

Speakers confirmed (from left to right in top row):
Brian Jacobs | Jasmine Owens | Amanda Woodvine | Maggie Lister | Caitlin Galer-Unti
Refreshments kindly supplied by (from left to right in bottom row):
Clarkshaws | Perk!er Foods | Eat Real Snacks
