A PREHISTORIC-THEMED pop-up vegan food festival is taking place in Penarth later this month, in support of animal rescue foundations, charities and local businesses.

The event will be taking place at the Paget Rooms in Victoria Road on Sunday, March 25 and will feature stalls from a wide range of local businesses offering hot and cold food, alcohol, make-up and gifts.

All of the stalls will be exclusively selling vegan and animal cruelty-free products.

The Paget Rooms' top floor will be hosting stalls from Cheltenham-based gourmet vegan burger brand Seitan's Grill, who will be offering customers the chance to 'dine with the Devil' with their iconic 'black goth' burgers and rolls, macaroni and cheese and blend of fiery sauces.

Joining them will be Babita's Spice Deli, serving gluten-free Indian and Asian cuisine, while downstairs there will be Field Bar Wines, Shirley's Homemade Raw Chocolate – which is designed to be suitable for diabetics, and Jane's Better Butter – which sells vegan butter substitutes.

Local firms Crepe Escape, Windsor Fruit Stores, Eat Petite and The Welshman's Lunch will also be providing food stalls downstairs.

Makeup brands Tropic, Neals Yard Organics and Iuvo Skincare, as well as gift stores Willow Tree Wellness and Kelly Tong Jewellery will also be in attendance.

The event is being held in support of a number of animal rescue and charity organisations, who will also be present on the day. These include Greenpeace UK, Fauna Wildlife Rescue, Hillside Animal Sanctuary, RozMogz Cat Rescue and more.

There will also be a free 'Kid's Corner' to keep children entertained throughout the day, which will also play on the prehistoric event theme featuring dinosaur figures and soft toys, colouring books and stickers, and children are also invited to dress up for the event as their favourite prehistoric-themed characters.

A raffle on behalf of the Hillside Animal Sanctuary will take place at 3.30pm. Donations are gladly accepted, however they must be suitable for vegans.

The event is due to begin at 11am and will conclude at 5pm. Admission is £1 for adults and free for children.
