Celebrating all that's good and right in the non-animal product world, a Glasgow venue will host a vegan fete next month, with a vast array of meat-free stalls for punters who prefer puy lentils to pork chops.

The Flying Duck's Big Vegan Fete will take place Saturday April 4 and will showcase a variety of small businesses' wares including tablet, cakes, pies, and juice, all made without a drop of dairy in sight.

Also appearing at the fete, which will run 2pm - 7pm, is the VeganKind Monthly Subscription Box - an initiative whereby customers can sign up to a box of surprise vegan-friendly goodies to be delivered to their front door once a month. Each box costs £10 and can contain treats such posh cereal, vegetable crisps, fruit puree smoothies, eco-friendly washing powder, cookies, beauty bits and bobs and fruity snack bars.

Also displaying their wares on the day will be Glasgow-based Dairy-Free Scottish Tablet; Red Rosa's Specialist Cakery; Considerit Chocolate; and Smashing Tarts all offering sweet comestibles made without animal products.

The Wild Witchery will provide handmade arts, crafts and vegan cosmetics, while Juice Warrior - Glasgow's first raw cold-pressed juice company - will be on hand to offer customers with quality cruelty-free drinks.

Chris Amos, manager, said: "We started the fete to create a bit of a 'safe space' for Glaswegian (and further afield if they're willing to travel!) vegans to have a browse and try things out without having to worry about what they're eating, drinking or wearing.

"At the same time it opens up a platform for local vegan businesses to get their wares out to a pretty massive bunch of people - most of the stall holders we have are pretty grassroot businesses and it's pretty great to be able to help something like that grow. 

"Apart from an afternoon of stuffing yourself and having a browse, there'll be more of the usual Duck oddities really - we'll be open business as usual at the same time and we'll probably pop a wee film on in the corner for people to rest some swollen bellies for a while."

Entry to the Big Vegan Fete at the Flying Duck, 142 Renfield Street, Glasgow, is free.The venue's licensing dictates that no children under 18 may enter the premises.
