Nottingham Viva! Vegan Festival

Release date: 
Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Everything you ever wanted to know about going, being or staying vegan will be available at the Nottingham Viva! Vegan Festival Saturday 6 May 2017. This festival is organised by vegan charity Viva! and entry is just £3 (under 16s free). A whole range of delicious food tastings and all the advice you could ever want on changing your diet or improving your health is available for no additional cost.

A copy of Everyone’s Going Vegan magazine (worth £4) will be given free to everyone attending.

With over 150 stalls this festival will be a brilliant and welcoming family day out. There will be vendors selling everything from vegan food to cruelty-free cosmetics. The festival also includes an impressive schedule of cookery demos, talks and a kids’ zone. Nottingham’s very own V Spot Vegan Shop, Numinums Café and the award winning Veggies catering (the UK's longest running vegan café founded in 1985) will be exhibiting at the festival. Finally, to top it all off, attendees are offered free entry to the vegan beer festival at one of the UK’s only vegan pubs, The Peacock, which is is renowned for its friendly atmosphere and tasty beer.

This is the first festival Viva! has held in Nottingham and the event expects to attract over 3000 attendees. Increasing interest in veganism, combined with a high number of stall holders and talks at this year’s event, indicate that this festival will be a roaring success.

Viva! campaigns director Justin Kerswell says: “Interest in veganism is expected to continue to boom in 2017. There are already a growing number of people in Nottingham who are vegan or vegetarian but this event is for everyone and all are welcome.

“For the increasing numbers of people who want to find out more about improving their health, saving animals and protecting the environment, this is an amazing event which will entertain and inspire.

“Showcasing the best vegan food in Nottingham, the Nottingham Viva! Vegan Festival will be a great day out that all the family can enjoy.”

This event follows the success of the 45 roadshows the group has held across the UK since October 2004, which have been attended by more than 98,000 people. A third of those attending the shows were meat eaters looking for help in cutting down their meat and dairy intake.
