  • 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.”

  • Huge celebration of the best of veganism in VegfestUK Awards 2016

    Full categories and nominees for the prestigious VegfestUK Awards 2016, which celebrate the very best of a vegan lifestyle in the UK, have just been announced. There are altogether 16 categories with 10 nominees each vying for the top gong.


    Running since 2007, the awards are the highlight of the year for many vegan businesses, organisations, projects and people, with tens of thousands of votes cast each year. Small vegan businesses and charities especially benefit from the marketing and prestige the awards create, and they have become a much loved and much valued part of the UK vegan community.


    The VegfestUK Awards organisers added, “With over half a million people identifying as vegan, and half a million veggies actively seeking vegan options, there have been a huge explosion in vegan products, projects and organisations. The VegfestUK awards 2016 reflect both the quality and diversity within the vegan market today, and to be nominated for an award in 2016 is a huge achievement in itself. We expect all categories to be hugely contested”


    You can cast your vote for your favourites at the link below: 


    Bi-weekly updates of the awards results will be announced under the “Awards” section on the Vegfest Express online vegan magazine:


    Voting will close at midnight sharp on Friday September 30th 2016.

  • 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.
