Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.

Kent Vegan Festival 2020 - date confirmed as Saturday 2nd May!

Our next event


 4th May saw us hold our annual festival in Canterbury, and despite being a bit on the chilly side it was lovely to see so many people.

A big thank you to the group of volunteers who made it all possible, and to you for coming. We had a fantastic range of stallholders, exhibitors, performers, speakers and such a wide range of food and merchandise available.

Thank you also to the team and staff at Canterbury College who made us feel so welcome.

Our aim is to raise awareness about veganism as a compassionate, holistic, healthy and intrinsically non-violent philosophy and growing movement. Our events are inclusive and welcoming, with the aim of encouraging all people in their vegan journey.

We believe in an inclusive approach to veganism. Systems of oppression are interconnected and cannot be challenged in isolation.

Our events are aimed at people who are, or are thinking about becoming vegan, those already moving towards the lifestyle; or who are just interested in finding out more about what veganism really means.

Our approach is to be supportive, educational, encouraging and positive: we believe in non-violence to all living beings and in peaceful, friendly, non-discriminatory means of campaigning and communicating our message. We believe that this is the most effective way to teach people about all aspects of veganism and to increase the number of vegans in the world.
