Veganism in later life to be explored in Mature Zone at VegfestUK Brighton

Veganism in later life to be explored in Mature Zone at VegfestUK Brighton

2019-02-18 
| by V for Life | Posted in VegfestUK Brighton 2019

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 served the periphery, 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 our Mature Zone? Nab some great free publications, enjoy an attractive array of vegan bakes, and listen in to inspiring cookery demonstrations, and thought-provoking films and presentations. Through popular demand, we have expanded the number of veggie socials, which are the perfect opportunity to meet like-minded souls.

 

Refreshments served outside the Mature Zone 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:

  • Veg-friendly travel 
  • VfL's vegan and vegetarian 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 12pm on Saturday and 11am on Sunday.
