ACTOR Jay Wilde, who was the star of a BAFTA award-winning short film, will open the Devizes Vegan Fair at the Corn Exchange on March 24.

Mr Wilde appeared in the film 73 Cows which tells the true story of Jay and Katja Wilde, the first farmers in the UK to trade beef farming for sustainable organic vegan farming.

They sent their cattle to an animal sactuary in Norwich.

The vegan fair, which runs from 10am to 4pm, will feature talks, live cookery demonstrations and a number of stallholders showcasing their ranges of cruelty-free food, drink, clothing and cosmetics. Go to
