Be The Future Vegan Market – This Weekend!

If you’re gonna be anywhere near London this weekend why not pop in to the Be The Future Vegan Market in Stoke Newington?

There’s going to be lots of stalls including Food, Drinks, Skincare, Crafts, Clothing, Plants, Candles, Scents, Ceramics, Soaps, Illustrations, Kids’ books, – that’s us! 😀 (Sunday only) – Kids’ Clothes, Jewellery, Herbs, Mushrooms, and all vegan, sustainable products.

The market is being held at Abney Public Hall, 73A Church Street, N16 0AS on Saturday the 2nd of November and Sunday the 3rd.  We won’t be there on the Saturday but that doesn’t mean it won’t be good! 😉

Click here to find out more, including how to get there.

We’ll be setting up our ‘Be The Future’ mobile library so you can sit and read the comics and story books and even borrow them for free.

Maybe we’ll see you there, if you go on Sunday 😉

Pendennis Castle

I never got around to telling you about our visit to Pendennis Castle when we went to Cornwall last year.  I have mixed feelings about castles.  On the one hand I love the feeling of history, picturing how people used to live at the time the castle was built.  I feel amazed at the architecture and how such big, strong, heavy, impressively crafted structures got built in the days before motor vehicles and cranes.

On the other hand I recoil at the violence they remind me of – the dungeons, the canons, the holes in walls for shooting arrows through and holes above the gates for pouring boiling oil through.

But at Pendennis Castle at least there is one thing I’m not in two minds about – the cake!

Here there was not just one, but two different types of vegan cake!  The lemon cake you see above and the flapjack pictured below.  I eat a lot of flapjacks and I can honestly tell you that this was the best I’ve ever eaten!

Of course we told the cook how much we loved it and how pleased we were that there were vegan options on the menu and the lovely lady said that they always make sure there is something for every dietary requirement and she invited us to return to the cafe for lunch as she was making a delicious vegan soup.

Hurrah for English Heritage!  Very well done 😀

Oh, and the views are pretty nice too 😉
