We are again welcoming room booking requests, for example band practices, meetings campaign workshops or other events. Many activities may be held in the garden, but can be inside if appropriate covid precautions are met. See also Sumac Centre news on facebook.
Wednesday June 23rd - Sunday June 27th
On 21st June, when Covid restrictions might have been lifted, Veggies Catering Campaign should have been setting up at Glastonbury Festival.
On Wednesday 23rd June, instead of opening at Glastonbury, Veggies had tentative plans for a five-day community mini-festival in the Sumac Centre Garden.
It now seems likely that restrictions will continue, so plans will be scaled down to fit current Sumac Centre protocols.
There are plenty of tables in the lush gardens, many shaded by gazebos, allowing space for 30-50 people with appropriate groupings of households.
Anyone interested in putting on any kind of event or setting up a pop-up stall for their vegan business during this festival is invited to contact us.
The plans so far may include:
Wednesday 23rd: Launch of Veggies crowd funded solar trailer installation
