Sheena Fairless, event organiser, explains why she is holding the event, she said: “We want to show people the cruelty involved with not being vegan, the health benefits are an added bonus.

“When I became vegan over 10 years ago there was no choice, but now there is so much choice so I think that is why it has become so popular. It is 2018 and animals still go through so much cruelty and it isn’t necessary.”

Entry is £3 and under 5s are free.
