Colchester held their first vegan festival on 10 May so I popped along with some of the Chelmsford Veg Up Group.
The event was held at the Arts Centre, a former church. It was certainly atmospheric with some quirky decor.
There were a variety of stalls including 2 breweries. Us Essex folk do love our ale.I sampled the Hellhound Brewery (Twisted Blonde was delightful - almost a light wine/beer hubrid) but alas Pitsfield had run out before I made it through the crowds surrounding their stand. Maybe I'll get a change to try their wares at the London Vegan Beer Festival.
There was hot food in the form of Ken's curry. It must have been good as the queue was almost out of the door.
The cafe area was well placed to look down on the fair activity. Tea and cake was provided by Ruby's vintage tea party. I was delighted by the vegan cake on offer but less than chuffed at the none china being used to serve it.
Same time next year? Yes please.
