Cambridgeshire's first-ever Yoga and Vegan Festival is coming to The Paradise Centre in Ely on Sunday June 11.
There will be yoga and meditation sessions, live music, stalls, vegan and raw vegan food, workshops, talks, Bollywood dancing and other activities.
Proceeds from this festival will be donated to the Mayor of Ely’s charitable fund and the charity, Miracle’s Mission, which works for injured animals in South Asian countries. The Mayor of Ely is also expected to attend the event.
The festival, which is being organised to mark an early celebration of World Yoga Day which is celebrated on June 19 worldwide, is run by an online community of vegan yogis, Yogific.
Kriti Sachdeva, of the group, said: “Cambridgeshire is home to many talented yoga teachers, yoga schools and a thriving vegan community, so this festival gives you the opportunity to meet all of them under one roof.
“Both yoga and veganism root for a peaceful and compassionate lifestyle. Yoga is not limited to just postures and veganism is not limited to just food.
“We are organizing yoga and vegan festivals at many places in the UK and other countries in the Europe to help people see the connection between the two.
“These events also give a great platform to ethical small traders and start-ups to showcase their product or service to the public.
“All of our events are not-for-profit as we donate the proceeds to partner charities,”
The festival will run from 9.15am until 5pm.
Entry costs £5 person and provides admission to all events.
