The longest running grassroots vegan festival in the UK returns to Wolverhampton this weekend.

Now in its ninth year, the 2016 West Midlands Vegan Festival will be spread over 2 venues, the Civic Halls and Wolverhampton Art Gallery, and offer everything needed for compassionate, healthy, eco friendly living.

The festival takes place from 10am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday (29 and 30 October) and admission is £1 for adults, free for under 16s, payable on the door.

Councillor John Reynolds, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for City Economy and himself a vegan, said: "We are really pleased to be holding the West Midlands Vegan Festival again and even more excited that it is being spread over 2 of our iconic venues for the first time.

"There will be over 160 stalls, everything from clothing, footwear and cosmetics to books, campaign organisations and lots of food. There will be something for everyone - you don't have to be veggie or vegan to attend, everyone is welcome."
