How do I get copies of the old newsletters?
Yes, almost all the newsletters (and other publications) are available for download.
I want to come to an event but I am not a vegan. Is that OK?
Yes. All we ask is that you are a vegan at the event.
Don't worry about knowing how to behave or anything like that. We are a very friendly bunch and new guests and members are always encouraged. And don't worry about missing out on things. Many the people who come to our events are only vegetarians and some aren't even that. They come because they really enjoy our events.
What themes have you had at Hitchcock's
We are known for our more unusual themes but to give you some idea of the range we have a page that lists them all for you.
You'll try to convert me though, won't you?
No. Not at all.
OK we would like everyone to become a vegan but we know the best way to achieve that is by being an inclusive group and getting non-vegans along to see what we do and to have a good time and to edge along to veganism at their own pace.
Now some of the people who were not vegan and came to our events have since become vegan, some have not. We don't mind that because we enjoy having all the people who come to our event around--it creates a great atmosphere.
Also we realise that it is an easier task to get every one in Britain to eat a vegan meal once per week than to convert
