Viva! campaigns director Justin Kerswell says: “Interest in veganism is expected to continue to boom in 2017. There are already a growing number of people in Cardiff who are vegan, vegetarian or on their way to a plant-based diet.

“For the increasing numbers of people who want to find out more about improving their health, saving animals and protecting the environment, this is an upbeat event which will entertain and help.

“Showcasing the best Welsh vegan food, the Cardiff Viva! Vegan Festival will be a great day out that all the family can enjoy.”

The Cardiff event follows the success of the 43 roadshows the group has held across the UK since October 2004, which have been attended by more than 92,000 people. A third of those attending the shows were meat eaters looking for help in cutting down their intake.

Viva! is an established animal and environmental campaigning charity that exposes animal abuse. Viva!’s events have helped thousands of people change to a kinder, healthier diet. All are welcome.
