Amanda Baker - The Vegan Society 

Cheap & Cheerful - healthy vegan eating on a budget

All your questions answered on how well-planned vegan diets can support healthy living at every life-stage - without breaking the bank! Eat plenty of brightly coloured fruits and vegetables, like oranges, beetroot, tomatoes, sweet peppers, carrots and broccoli and other dark green leafy vegetables. Get at least 1 microgram (ug) per meal of vitamin B12 from fortified foods, or take a daily (10 ug) or weekly (2000 ug) vitamin B12 supplement. Make sure you get sufficient vitamin D, too. Limit trans-fats and salt. Keep as active as you can: cycling one mile, or walking 3 miles, each day is ideal.

Dean Bracher - Vegan Campaigning for everyone!

Learning about veganism is the first step towards a more ethical lifestyle. With this workshop I intend to explain that we don't need to stop there and that campaigning in various ways not only helps society understand veganism and being vegan. It gives us all a chance to make a difference, educates ourselves on the importance of campaigning and then sharing that with others. Anyone with the right information and desire can make a difference and this workshop will give you the tools to achieve that. An interactive workshop where we can all be involved!


Bikram Yoga workshop

A chance to see for yourself what all the fuss is about, as well as participate in Bikram's Beginners Yoga Class. Students and teachers from Bikram in the Lanes hot yoga studio will provide a demonstration of the 26 postures & 2 breathing exercises that make up this popular style of hatha yoga. Designed to allow anyone with no experience or history of yoga to simply start at the beginning. Followed by an abbreviated class that will allow you to experience for yourself postures that make up Bikram's class, and followed by a question and answer session. Besides like Bikram says: "It's never too late, it's never too bad, you're never too old, you're never too sick to start from scratch once again, to be born once again." Please join us.

Vegan Organic Network - Grind your own Flour

Grind your own Vegan Organic Four in our interactive workshop. Learn about the properties of grain and the milling process. Why choose Stockfree Organic ingredients? Flour purchased at the grocery store has a shelf life of about 4 months. If we assume for a moment that the flour was ground the day before it arrived at the store and you purchased it that very next day you would then have 4 months till it went rancid and that would be under optimal storage conditions. Most people don't even know what rancid flour tastes and smells like - that's because most people can't tell. I can't either. I can however tell when I've eaten something with old flour in it!! I have a wallop of an allergy attack.



LiveLoveHoop workshop


Hula hoops are back and not like you remember them! Today's hula hoops are designed for adults - larger and heavier - and can give you a full body workout, a new way to dance and a chance for you to rediscover your inner child. Come along and have a spin and Jo will teach you keep a hoop going on your waist and learn tricks off the body too! Great fun for young and old.


The Vegan Society

Vegan & Proud - tips for talking to doctors, teachers and other service providers

Do you have concerns about how doctors, teachers, carers and others provide services to you as a vegan? Do you know any vegans who are having problems advocating for themselves? Have you heard of The Equality Act 2010 (covering England, Wales and Scotland)? Did you know that NHS hospitals have a duty to provide nutritious and appropriate food to patients? This is your chance to pick up ideas and find allies to help you get fair and equal treatment as a vegan from health, education, care and other services. Tip 1: If in doubt, talk to a Registered Dietitian!
