As VegfestUK moves into its 15th year pretty soon, we take this opportunity to thank all our previous and current stallholders for making these shows so vibrant and popular over the past 14 years – you have been amazing for us and without your contribution VegfestUK would never have got to the position it finds itself in today.
We recognise also that for many of our current stallholders as well as any prospective stallholder, it is a big outlay to continue exhibiting at these events, so we have taken the time to compile this short manual to help you get full value out of your VegfestUK experience.

Despite some sustained showers over the weekend May 21st 22nd, around 13,000 people visited the 14th edition of the VegfestUK Bristol vegan festival at the Amphitheatre, to enjoy good food, good music and good company.
With a house party featuring Marshall Jefferson, Alison Limerick, Adamski and Criss Cross on the Saturday, followed by an EDM / reggae fest with Stereo MC’s, Macka B and Andy Compton (feat. Celestine & Sabrina Chyld), the musical part of the event in the evenings was awe-inspiring and persuaded many to stay the full course of the day after a sumptuous feast of vegan food and information during the daytime.

In the short space of 2 months after Pig Freud’s last stop at Vegfest Scotland for his Autumn Tour in 2015, Pig Freud is planning another fundraiser this Spring for an ambitious vegan billboard project in Bristol to convince many to go vegan, live vegan, stay vegan and teach vegan.
Already in 2016, Pig Freud has launched a pilot Vegan “Justice for All” billboard and poster campaign in Brighton and Bristol. Very recently he was seen in St Paul’s, Bristol, posing in front of VegfestUK’s brand-new “Justice for All” posters, and the antics of Pig Freud was on the front cover of the Latest 7 too recently.
Pig Freud’s Vegan “Justice for All” Bristol campaign includes:
- Billboards and large outdoor poster sites in Bristol
- Posters on Buses and Bus stops in Bristol
- Radio Adverts
- Posters and Flyers throughout the city
- Media coverage – Local and National
- Social media engagement – word of mouth
Pig Freud is aiming to raise £5,000 to fund this campaign. Will you help him please? You can help by:
- donating to Pig Freud at VegfestUK Brighton and Bristol 2016
- donating to the following crowdfunder:https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/PigFreudSpring2016
There’s also the ADDED BONUS that VegfestUK will match your donations pound for pound!
Join Pig Freud and help him raise £5,000 to create a really dynamic vegan billboard, bus stop and radio campaign in Bristol during May 2016 to help get meat, dairy, eggs and fish off the menu.
Many thanks for visiting this year's VegfestUK Brighton event - approximately 10,700 visitors came to the event altogether and had an enjoyable experience!
