What we're about

A group to go out for food and fun.

Being plant powered isn't limiting. It opens you to a world of possibilities. Many cultures have dishes and cuisines which are plant based. Come with us to vegsplore.

Vegetarians, vegans, lapsed and vegecurious are all welcome. There will be opportunities to share our favourite food and visit our favourite restaurants, opportunities to socialise and to meet a wider group of people.

I am keen for us to go beyond the limits of eating at just veg*n restaurants. Many cultures have a plant based diet and many cuisines lend themselves to veg*nism. Direct action takes many forms, demonstrating that there is a demand for veg*n food, will help to develop more choice.

Being veg*n isn't about missing out, it's about being open to many more new possibilities.

Bearwood Earth Market + Indian meal at Red Oven

Lightwoods House

First we'll visit Bearwood Earth Market (formerly Vegan Vybes) to support local vegan business owners at this monthly event. Next we will go to a bar/coffee shop for a drink until 5:30pm when the Red Oven opens, then we'll head head there for a tasty meal. We'll need to know in advance how many veggies/vegans are attending the meal so that we can let them know. Thanks! :)
