Something exciting is coming in 2024

The Vegetarian Society Cookery School have something extremely exciting on the horizon and we are busy planning and developing our next steps behind the scenes. Firstly, we moved away from Parkdale in Altrincham in September 2023, and because of this, we won’t be advertising regular classes for a while. 

We were perhaps a little optimistic on our proposed opening date! We’re in the process of working through the necessary permissions and agreeing on a new cookery school design – but it’s taking a little longer than we imagined.

We should be up and running later next year, with a fantastic new city centre venue.

(Please note, the address in our website footer is our administrative office, and not our cookery school venue.)
