The Festival will run from 10am until 6pm at each venue with the exception of the Thirsty Scholar where it will run from noon until 3am.
The festival is fully volunteer run and all proceeds will go to animal welfare charities, as will the proceeds from our partner festival, The Great Yorkshire Vegan Festival held on 18th June 2016 at Leeds Town Hall, Leeds City centre.
