  • Robin S, Danny Rampling, Rozalla and Dub Pistols headline 15th annual vegan festival on Bristol Harbourside

    Now in its 15th year, VegfestUK Bristol is set to celebrate with a massive House Party on Saturday May 20th 2017. Billed as the “Show Me Love” party, and headlined with a live set from Robin S, along with DJ Danny Rampling, and Rozalla (Everybody’s Free), the event harks back to the heady days of rave music from the early 90’s….and then on Sunday, Dub Pistols headline alongside South African reggae acts ZionRuts and local Bristol-based hip-hop crew The Scribes.

     

    “Saturday is definitely what you might call a house party with an extra sprinkling of quattro formaggio with grated mozzarella and some melted ‘Sheese’ – all vegan of course,” say VegfestUK organisers. “Danny Rampling is of course a household name for many following his long-time stints on Radio 1, and we’re particularly thrilled to welcome Robin S from the USA who many will remember for her iconic multimillion-selling hit ‘Show Me Love’. Likewise, Rozalla, who had a huge hit with ‘Everybody’s Free’ will be performing live. And if that wasn’t enough, we also have Nicky Holloway, the original house promoter from the Shoom days of the mid-80’s, which was at the very heart of original house music as we know it today.”

     

    “The Sunday lineup has a traditional reggae / hip-hop / dub feel to it, with Dub Pistols headlining and ZionRuts from South Africa supporting alongside local Bristol hip-hop talents The Scribes. We will be expecting capacity crowds on both days.”

  • How to get full value from being a stallholder at VegfestUK

    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.

  • Pig Freud Spring 2016 fundraiser for Vegan Justice for All billboard campaign

    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.
