For the ultimate high-end experience, book onto one of the Vegan Cakery’s nationwide travelling afternoon tea events. Started in 2012 by owner Michelle, the Vegan Cakery is a 100 per cent ethically vegan business based in Leicestershire, that each month donates a percentage of its sales to an animal charity. This Mother’s Day, the Vegan Cakery’s aternoon tea experience will be returning to the beautiful Stratfordupon- Avon Town Hall. The experiences are a luxury ‘sit-down’ affair, complete with crisp linen and quality crockery, with delicious vegan treats served over three courses. After being seated at your table, you will be invited to select from an assortment of over 10 freshly brewed leaf and specialist flowering teas. Following a tasty amuse-bouche, an assortment of freshly prepared finger sandwiches will be served, before home-cooked plain and fruit scones with vegan cream and preserves. Last but not least, and the highlight of the afternoon tea, a selection of miniature cakes and pastries. Michelle’s intention is to provide a real afternoon tea experience, much more than just a cup of tea and slice of cake. £25 per person, vegancakery.com

About Vegan Life

Welcome to the March issue. It’s my favourite time of year, as the evenings get lighter and the first signs of spring emerge. It’s the perfect time of year to dust off the winter cobwebs and refocus on our goals. This year has already seen a lot of change for the vegan movement — Veganuary was a huge success, with 250,000 sign-ups, and hopefully a large proportion of those who took part will continue their vegan journeys. We have seen an unprecedented amount of vegan food launches, too — in supermarkets and restaurants — and it feels like change is really happening. But with all change there is controversy — we take a look into the issues and backlash surrounding some of these new launches. Mother’s Day is on the 31st of March, and what better way to celebrate the women who raised us than by treating them to a vegan high tea? We’ve rounded up the best and the recipes you need if you want to make your own. It’s important to remember those who don’t get to spend the day with loved ones, and this includes the millions of dairy cows cruelly separated from their parents. We take some time to reflect. We also had the pleasure of talking to the inspirational James Aspey this month. The activist and campaigner has some great advice for advocating. Enjoy the issue, Phillipa Smith
