We are super excited, to announce that our Vegan Organic Fest 2021 is going ahead and are looking forward to a fun, entertaining and thought provoking back to nature veganic event.
The Vegan Organic Fest will be at Chyan Cultural Centre; an eleven acre site deep in the Cornish countryside with a capacity of about 200 people, camping facilities, on site hostel and nearby alternative accommodation.
Chyan is an off grid veganic apple farm with its own supply of spring water. The venue hosts many events and is a wonderful place for returning to nature, some of the land is wild, some is nature reserve and there is plenty of flat meadow for camping. Chyan has a 200-seater geodesic dome theatre, two large modern barns for classes plus several marquees. The centre has its own wind turbine, which provides electricity for the whole site, the hot showers, swimming pool and sauna are all fed by natural spring water. We are blessed to be able to hold the festival in such a beautiful, peaceful and positive space.
The event is from midday on Thursday 12
th August-Monday 16 th August with activities happening from Friday-Sunday.
No dogs allowed.

Lazy Meadow Farm
For two decades I lived a double-life. And with the help of a hidden camera, some water-tight cover stories and a little luck I traversed the globe working undercover to document the damage factory farming was doing to the planet and the billions of suffering animals used to feed and clothe us.

But while it helped create change and promoted vegan lifestyles, it came at a bit of a personal cost.
