Newbury town centre is declared ‘vegan-friendly’

Newbury Business Improvement District (BID) has announced an all-new Vegan Christmas Market coming to town on the weekend of the highly anticipated Christmas Lights SwitchOn Festival. They have also created a new Vegan Trail Map for Newbury.


Copies of the map, produced by the BID, are being delivered as part of a wider project in partnership with Newbury Town Council, which aims to produce a series of town centre maps for Newbury under the umbrella term ‘Newbury Town Trails’.

Newbury offers a varied list of town centre businesses, including both hospitality and retail venues, that cater specifically to the vegan and v-curious market, such as authentic Thai hotspot- Khon Kaen and vegan brunch spots at Weavers Coffee Shop and The Flowerpot Café, as well as cruelty-free and sustainable-shopping stores such as Natures Corner, Grape Tree, and even vegan alcohol products from Inn at Home.

The Vegan Map promotes 30 of these venues while detailing vegan-friendly offers available in Newbury year-round and exclusively on Vegan Market days. The map also signposts more information about forthcoming specialty Vegan Markets, and upcoming town centre events.

The launch of the Vegan Map and return of the quarterly Vegan Market on Sunday 21st November, were purposefully timed to align with the internationally acclaimed ‘World Vegan Month’, to help establish Newbury as a vegan-friendly town.

The Vegan Map is the second map in the ‘Newbury Town Trail’ project to launch, following the recent production of a ‘Public Art and Blue Plaque Map’, which highlights a trail of significant heritage and history landmarks around Newbury. Maps have already been distributed across the town centre and are available to collect from West Berkshire Museum and Newbury Library, as well as in the Old Town Hall.
