PLEASE NOTE: We are sorry to announce that our Vegan Banquet is now full to capacity (although we are absolutely chuffed about the positive response!) As we don’t like to stop people coming, we will have room for more after 9pm for the after-dinner entertainment for which we are asking £5 donation. If you can’t make it and would like to make a donation anyway – please do! It’s all for an excellent and important cause. Thank you.

Surely the most pleasurable way to voice concerns about the environment must be to tuck into good healthy low carbon fare! As you may know, we’re organising a 3 course vegan banquet and swap shop at the Pirate Castle on Oval Road to celebrate the 10/10/10 Global Day of Doing on the 10th of October. It will be one of 5978 events taking place around the world.

We are all aware that modern commercial animal husbandry is a major contributor to global greenhouse emissions. As the organisation that ran ‘The Big Ask’, the campaign that brought about our Climate Change law, we’re keen that people understand that the food choices that they make have a direct impact on the size of their carbon footprint.

An International menu, including superb desserts and wine, a swap shop to exchange your oldies for someone else’s oldies, and live entertainment awaits attendees! The evening promises to be one of much merriment coupled with participating in a powerful International day of climate campaigning and awareness.

A minimum donation of £10 is requested, all proceeds to Friends of the Earth. Places can be booked and donations can be made at:

We look forward to seeing you there!
