Farplace Animal Rescue, which organises many of the biggest vegan festivals in the UK, was forced to suspend its events due to the pandemic.

The County Durham-based rescue organises festivals nationwide to raise funds for the charity, and awareness of the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle.

Now Farplace is preparing to hold its first events after restrictions eased, with Wallsend Vegan Market taking place on Saturday, July 10.
