Supported by Virtuoso Foods, the event is taking place on Saturday, December 15 at the John Bunyan Museum, Mill Street, from 10am until 4pm, and there will be exhibitors over two floors.

Guilda Akopians, of Virtuoso Foods, said: “This year we have secured two floors at this venue, so we can really exhibit the best in vegan businesses and showcase the diversity in what veganism has to offer, from tasty foods, drinks, cakes and sweet treats to products, services, giftware, information and much more.

“We are collaborating with a local charity to raise money for Bedford’s homeless with a raffle at the festival, as well as taking part in Bedford’s SoupFest 2018 by cooking up some vegan soup. There will be a chef’s demo on the Kitchen Stage to show the easy steps it takes in creating delicious soups at home.”

The festival will showcase a wide variety of street foods, raw ingredients and cakes, preserves and cheese.

Stalls will include natural skincare, toiletries and supplements, holistic therapies and homeopathy, arts and crafts, information table, and gift ideas.
