An historic Norwich venue will be hosting a vegan festival this weekend, with all funds set to be donated to animal charities.
Shena Louise has organised the third annual Norwich Vegan Christmas Festival, after last year's event saw more than 1,400 animal lovers browse the stalls.
The event at St Andrew's Hall will run from 10am to 4pm and will include live music from the Norwich Community Choir and the City of Norwich Brass Band.
Members of the UK Sea Shepherd Conservation Charity will take the stage at 12pm for an environmental talk.
Representatives from a range of charities will also be available for questions throughout the day.
National groups such as Action for Greyhounds and the League Against Cruel Sports will have stalls, as well as Shena's own Lincolnshire-based Pudz Animal Sanctuary.
There will be independent businesses selling Christmas food and gifts alongside plastic-free sanitary towels and straws, as well as biodegradable glitter and make up wipes.
