Love Vegan Fest has a new venue - Graeme High School, Callendar Rd.
Falkirk Stadium are closing the event space we had booked, leaving us without a venue. However we have secured a new space, one mile closer to the town centre so providing better travel links and still with ample parking.
We hope you will support the event and please share this post far and wide to prevent people turning up at the wrong venue.
So happy we are still able to continue with Falkirk's first vegan festival and promise it will be a great one ✌🏼✌🏾✌🏼
