On Monday 18 May National Vegetarian Week, sponsored by ‘Nothing But’, will launch in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The week is a celebration of all things veggie and this year has as its theme ‘Share!’ The Vegetarian Society and its cookery school will be marking the start of the week by sharing pizza with visitors to its travelling pizza kitchen.

Pop along to Northumberland Street South, Newcastle-upon-Tyne from 11:30 to 14:30 to watch our cookery school whip up a pizza, help choose the toppings then taste the fruits of their labour. There’ll be a chance to chat and even pick up a freebie pack. For recipes, events info and details of the pizza tour, head to

Share a pizza

Alex Connell, Principal Tutor at the Vegetarian Society Cookery School said, “We are really looking forward to launching National Vegetarian Week in Newcastle. It’s a beautiful and bustling city so where better to start our seven-day pizza sharing tour? Come on down and say hi, watch us creating the pizza, choose toppings and then sample a delicious slice! We want to get out and share delicious veggie food with as many people as possible during the week. Recent studies have shown that around 20% of the population are choosing to eat more meat-free meals so this is great way for us to show how tasty vegetarian food can be – and what better to share than pizza!”
