Just like last time you can expect to see a wide range of vegan stalls including delicious vegan food, ethical clothing brands, cruelty free cosmetics, arts and crafts and much more.

As well as having a fantastic selection of both local and national vegan brands there will be a programme of light entertainment throughout the day so will be a great day out for all to enjoy. Vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, pescatarians, omnivores and just the v-curious – all welcome!

Reading Vegan Market

Reading Vegan Market comes to you on the 4th Saturday of the month at Station Hill in Reading town centre, offering a range of plant-based baked goods, savoury dishes, desserts and art.

Reading Vegan Festival

Reading Vegan Festival is coming back on the 22nd September 2018.

The first ever Reading Vegan Festival in 2017 took Reading by storm with around 2,500 visitors, so is returning in 2018!

It will be a safe and friendly environment to ask questions and enable you to sample and buy a range of vegan food, cosmetics, clothing and lifestyle choices. Additionally, there will be a programme of activities, speakers and food demos. The full-day programme will be announced nearer the time.

Highlights from 2017 below:

Vegan Farm Fayre

Visit the Vegan Farm Fayre at Tolhurst Organic Walled Garden at Hardwick Estate

An idyllic day in the countryside for customers, local community and beyond!

What is a vegan farm? Well, come to our Open Day and learn.

We do not have any animals on the farm (apart from our dog, birds and myriads of pollinating insects) and do not use any animal muck to grow our organic veg. We were the first farm in the world to certify with Stockfree Organic Standards in 2003 – an international quality assurance scheme confirming total care for the environment without any animal inputs.

We take the seriousness of veganism to a gastronomic height. Our produce is local and seasonal, grown with love and care and from it we intend to cook delicious food: salads, soups, bakes, ice cream and deserts, to show that vegan food does not have to be boring, expensive, artificial or exotic. Pizzas and licensed bar will be available, too, for all tastes and ages.

Trade stalls with vegan food and beverages, vegan skin care products, local crafts, children entertainment and garden walk – all to make your day at the farm as enjoyable as ever.

Event programme will also include a Storytelling corner for children and a Speakers corner for adults on vegan farming & food and healthy eating.

Entry is £4/person. Children come free. This is a cash-only event. We regret that there are no cash machines in the vicinity of the farm. The nearest one is 3 miles away in the village of Pangbourne. Car park available in the field, 0.8 miles walking distance, so bring your pushchairs for children. Limited parking available for disabled and elderly. Enquire at gates.

Stallholders can apply for a pitch at info@tolhurstorganic.co.uk. Details about the farm at www.tolhurstorganic.co.uk

Reading Monthly Vegan Market

Reading Vegan Market comes to you on the 4th Saturday of the month at Station Hill in Reading town centre – with the exception of 22nd September when we have the fabulous Reading Vegan Festival!

Open from 10am till 4pm, the mini festival will be back every month offering a range of plant-based baked goods, savoury dishes, desserts and art. As well as hot food, expect to find beautiful cakes, cookies, sweets, chocolate, fudge, a fabulous range of low-waste eco products and beauty products.

Ethic Collective, set up by friends Philippa Stannard and Melony Lawrence, aims to meet the increasing demand for meat and dairy alternatives with some delicious and varied offerings.

 

CND at Aldermaston • Easter Sunday • 60th anniversary

On Easter Sunday 60 years ago, campaigners marched from London to the AWE factory in Berkshire – where Britain was making its first nuclear bombs. The world has changed immensely since then – we face numerous new threats that would not have been conceived of in 1958 – but AWE is still producing nuclear warheads.

CND invites you all to join us at AWE Aldermaston this Easter Sunday to celebrate our history and look to the future. Through speeches, music, memories, fence decorating, let’s make it clear that Trident should be scrapped and we want a nuclear-free world. It’s also an opportunity to see the fantastic CND installation which is travelling the country. The event will conclude with an inter-faith vigil.

Assemble 12 noon, Sunday, April 1st at the Main Gate, AWE Aldermaston, Berkshire, RG7 4PR . More information
