  1. disappointed not to see any vegan and/or gluten free options

    1. Hello. There may well be vegan and gluten free food on offer, but we have not (yet) asked churches to confirm this information when they submit their brochure copy. I will suggest that churches who do (or could) offer these options make themselves known next year, so we can direct people to them.

      Angela (on behalf of the Churches Festival).
