If you're staying in Nottingham around the time of the festival, check out this site for other places to eat:


If you come to Nottingham and don't eat at Squeek, your trip will have been wasted!

See you all there.

It is possible that the local AR group will try to take on the job of running the festival :). I'll post back here if so. If you are interested in helping to make it happen by organising or volunteering on the day, please send me a message.

From the Sumac Centre News:

The East Midlands Vegan Festival, to be held on Saturday December 9th is in
doubt. The Council House venue is no longer available, but it hoped to
rearrange the event in a different format in a different venue. This will take
a lot of planning and preparation, in advance in a short amount of time, and on the day. Will You Help?

Emergency Planning Meeting this Thursday 16th, from 7.30 at the Sumac Centre

Right, I can confirm that the East Midlands Vegan Festival is definitely on!

It has moved to a new venue: the YMCA on Shakespeare Street, Nottingham (Near the city centre, opposite the clock tower entrance to the Victoria Shopping Centre). It will run from 11am to 5pm on Saturday 9th December.

We need volunteers to help out on the day. If you want to help, or you want to run a stall, or you want any more information, please send an email to:
no-spam@veganfestival@veggies.org.uk (no-spam@veganfestival@veggies.org.uk?subject=Remove%2 0no-spam@%20from%20the%20address) (Remove the no-spam@ bit from the address)

There will be a social event afterwards in the Sumac Centre in Forest Fields.

More information to follow.

Please spread the word!
