Come and retell the Haggadah of our ancestors at a cosy, warm and friendly seder with a sumptuous creative menu designed by vegan chefs. There’ll be a home-grown created-by-the-community feel and spaces for kids to run free.
What’s the vibe?
We hope to create a homely, warm and friendly seder. Together as a group we are asking people to lead different parts of the Haggadah. Vegan Seder is non-denominational, inclusive and created from the grass-roots. We welcome folks from all backgrounds. Vegan chefs will lead our pre-yom tov community cooking sessions, and everyone is invited to drop in for a bit of cooking. We’ll sit together at a long seder table, but there’ll also be a chill-out space for relaxing with rugs and cushions.
What’s happening for kids?
Kids will be fully included and encouraged to take part in the telling of the Haggadah. But there’ll also be a designated area with toys and quiet napping spaces for them if they need it.
Kitchen Crew Volunteers
We are asking also if everyone could please sign up to an hour of volunteering to help make the seder happen, if you can (for example, helping the chefs or setting up). As we create the seder together we are creating a community … so come join the kitchen team for an hour or so, and you’ll get to meet other folks coming to the event. Sign up to volunteer at this link.
What’s on the Vegan Seder menu?
We are currently in the process of creating a menu with our vegan chefs… we think it may include Mediterranean aubergine-based lasagnes with cashew cheese, Asian spiced curries with chilli and Latin America-inspired hors d’oeuvres, like Pesach-friendly tacos with salsa. And desserts involving chocolate, truffles and sorbets. Watch this space for menu updates, as we are still finalising the menu. We will be using almonds and cashews in some of the dishes – please inform us if you have any allergies. We will have a simpler kids menu too.
What’s the cost and how do I book?
Pricing is £40 per head for adults with discounts for children. This is a non-profit, break-even event and we’re trying to keep the costs to as low as possible. To book click here. We are limiting the numbers to 50 people.
How kosher for Pesach this?
The seder will be strictly kosher for Pesach, and there will be an orthodox shomer supervising the kitchen, so that it can be accessible to all.
You can reflect on the Exodus in true reclining style. Come as you are.
