The Northern Vegan Festival 2014 is taking place across 4 close together venues with 2 main stall venues:
The first 3 venues are in the heart of Manchester city centre and are all within a few minutes walk of each other.
Venue 1 - Sachas Hotel, Tib Street, Manchester, M4 1SH where to avoid the overcrowding problem of 2013, there will be 94 rather than 100 stalls in the USA Suite on the ground floor, as well as talks and films in the Roosevelt and Jefferson rooms on the 1st floor, speed meeting and heterosexual and lesbian and gay speed dating in the Grant and Kennedy rooms on the ground floor, and vegan musicians and free vegan food samples downstairs in the Spindles Bar.
Directions to Sachas Hotel
Venue 2 - Methodist Church Central Hall, Oldham Street, Manchester, M1 1JQ which is across the road from the back of the USA Suite. At this venue there will be 57 stalls in the various rooms on the 1st floor.
