Get back in touch with the true spirit of Christmas!
Join best-selling authors, Gillian Monks and Lee Watson at the beautifully situated Trigonos, to celebrate an alternative Festive season with a delicious, 3 course plant-based lunch and cooking demonstration.
Are you interested in a Christmas which doesn’t revolve around commercialism and consumerism?
Do you wish to return to celebrating this time of year in a more authentic way?
Gillian will be sharing her passion for this season and introducing you to an alternative festive approach, re-introducing ourselves to activities and customs which better reflect the nature of this time of year.
Prepare to be inspired!
Vegan chef Lee will be creating a plant-based festive menu, with lots of treats. A slap up three course Christmas lunch, using local produce, that everyone can enjoy! Vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free options are available, all decadent and delicious. Lee will also be demonstrating how to cook a full vegan Christmas dinner, step by step.
Gillian’s workshop will involved creating your own Christmas decorations from locally foraged evergreens. Design and make your own advent wreath or kissing ball, Welsh calennigs, Christmas woodland gnomes and eco-friendly gift-wrapping.
Gillian will also be sharing ideas for festive entertainment, games and gifts, which cost nothing except time, inspiration and care, as well as leading our stories and carols by the fire.

Why we came together for Merry Vegan Midwinter:
“Celebrating midwinter is not about what you buy or how much you spend….Turn away from the frenetic consumerism of Christmas and rediscover the authentic and meaningful realities of this, the oldest and most precious celebration of the year.
The true significance of midwinter is not found in any individual spiritual or religious belief or practice. Instead, the winter solstice provides an opportunity to celebrate what we as humans share; to set aside our differences and come together with a sense of community and cheer.”
“Many people are choosing to eat more plant-based foods, I want to make the festive season delicious for all! Taking into account vegans, gluten-free and even sugar-free options, I’ll be creating a Christmas lunch menu that everyone will enjoy. Full of flavours, textures and pleasant surprises along the way.”
Come along for an enjoyable, delicious and relaxing day, reconnecting with the true spirit of Christmas.
