As a new vegan I've yet to attend any of the festivals. I'm interested in attending at least two this year but there are quite a few taking place. Does anyone have any advice or recommendations about which ones would be most beneficial for a new vegan?
Thanks :-)

Hi Lavinia

If you have not already found it peta has a list of vegan festivals in the uk for 2014 at­

and Sumac/veggies of Nottingham include festivals in their diary at


If you can get to them I would recommend the large vegfest ones in London or Bristol which offer a chance to see and sample the widest range of vegan products.

23/24/25 May 2014 Vegfest Bristol http://bristol.vegfes...­
27/28 September Vegfest London http://london.vegfest...­

also worth visiting in London

August London Vegan Festival

December London Animal Aid Christmas Vegan Fayre

Local to Nottingham based on last year hopefully there will be vegan festivals/fairs in

August - Derby Heart for animals

October - Lincoln East Midlands Vegan Festival

November - Compassionate Derby

November - Leicester Vegan Fayre

November - Lincoln Veggie Fayre

Festivals/fairs with vegan elements

22 March 2014 Leicester http://greenlightfest...­

4/5/6 July 2014 VDelicious Olympia London http://www.v-deliciou...­

Proposed for 18 May (tbc) Nottingham Green Festival

You may also be interested in trying two UK vegan box schemes to get regular samples of a variety of vegan items:



Hope this is of some help.

Hi Peter

Thanks so much for the very comprehensive reply. Lots of things I wasn't aware of so this has been really useful. Definitely going to go to two of the larger festivals and will now look out for the more local ones too.

Off to have a look at the box schemes, they sound good.

Thanks for your help,
