Nottingham Green Festival 2019

Nottingham Green Festival is organised by grass routes community based volunteers, with no statutory funding. The ethical standards and environmental / human / animal rights ethos of the event are long established, having evolved from the pre-history of the Nottingham Peace Festival from which it has grown.

Nottingham’s own Green Festival provides the place for the whole family to learn, explore and try the latest in everything environmentally friendly and ethical, whilst also having lots of fun in the beautiful setting of the Arboretum Park.

Veggies has catered and campaigned at the Green Festival, and the Peace Festival before it, for our entire 35 year history. We were pleased now to be joined by 10 other vegan caterers and other artisan food producers, supporting the events’ new vegan ethos and building on a thirty+ year meat-free policy.

The Green Festival continues to break all records in terms of visitors & stalls.

This will be the 27th Nottingham Green Festival and with your support it will be even bigger & better in 2019.

You are therefore encouraged to support the regular fundraising events and join in with the planning group meetings.

Shambala Festival – Rebel Soul 2019

Shambala is a creative, non-commercial, ethical and family-friendly festival with a wild side and completely independent from advertising and sponsorship!

In 2016 Shambala went Meat and fish free, to continue their mission to keep Shambala at the cutting edge of sustainable event organising.

“… we’re setting ourselves a challenge: to provide the most eye-popping, mouthwatering, colourful, hearty array of cuisine at Shambala 2016 without a single bit of meat or fish on sale. Not a sausage. Instead, keep your eyes peeled for … a range of delicious food from around the world, debates, talks and creative exploration of the wonderful world of food.

Shambala HQ is a mixed bag, with vegans, veggies and meat eaters co-existing harmoniously together, but the whole team agrees that it is important to be bold with our environmental stance, and encourage this debate.”

Rebel Soul

Veggies hope to assist again with facilities for the Rebel Soul space, with a programme of intellectual stimulation, music and performance that will challenge, inspire and fire you up. Whet your appetite: fresh-baked cake, pasties & samosas, teas & coffees (for donation), and fairtrade tuck shop.

Rebel Soul will be a whole area combining beautiful tents and beautiful people within to celebrate rebellion, resistance and exploring positive futures. Stimulation for your mind with workshop, displays, info and bookstall and, for your aural delectation, a fine line-up of music and poetry.

“Rebel Soul is politics thinly veiled as entertainment. In the day we host workshops and debates on hot topics run by people who know their fields inside out. We host the country’s frontline campaigners – from the people who ran the No More Page 3 campaign to the people spearheading the anti-fracking movement. We bring you the people who will ask the big questions, and then help you answer them, like why is Shambala vegetarian? what is sex? and what is race?”

By night we celebrate with bangin’ bands and DJs from punk to soca to techno, and from all over the world. We have a store full of books and zines and a tuck shop with hot drinks and delicious cakes. All our proceeds go to support grassroots campaigns – last year we funded groups supporting asylum seekers.

Why a Fundraiser …

The Naturally Vegan Plot is a volunteer run educational and community orientated land based initiative, we are to all intent and purposes a community enterprise, The Naturally Vegan Plot and the events we organise are our Vegan Outreach and activism offering positive solutions which are alternatives to current destructive methods of land use and food production.

We are ethically driven, we exist for the animals, for wildlife, for nature, for the environment, for the Earth, for vegans, for new vegans … for all life on Earth, for a brighter, healthier world where vegan organic produce is abundant and animals and land are not exploited and sacrificed for anyone’s desires …

We exist to disseminate information and raise awareness, for education, research, demonstration, practicle positive and appropriate solutions, wildlife and nature conservation and sanctuary plus vegan organic / veganic produce through our market garden, woodland / forest gardening …

We are not profit driven or motivated by money … we are motivated by doing the best we can to cause and contribute to least possible harm and we are committed to helping others do the same ( or better 😉 )

Due to the nature of our work we are in need of support from the community, all donations will be invested in furthering our work as an ethical vegan organic enterprise with the aims of growing and providing truly vegan foods …
our current priorities for fundraising are paying rent for the land and funds to secure the future of The Naturally Vegan Plot beyond our second year.

Brinsley Animal Rescue Christmas Open Day

There’s no better way to start the festive season than at Brinsley Animal Rescue’s Christmas Open Day.

The sanctuary is run by volunteers and on vegan values, rescuing unwanted pets, injured wildlife and farm animal victims of the meat and dairy industry.

This year we will be having a Christmas open day at the rescue centre, where you can meet the animals and visit our cafe and stalls.

Plus we will also have our own stalls and outside stalls and charities at Brinsley Parish hall, which is a short walking distance from the rescue, on Cordy Lane, Brinsley NG16 5BY, where parking is available. There is no parking on site at the rescue centre.

Veggies and others will be providing vegan catering and literature to help compassionate people make the connection between the animals they’re visiting at the rescue and those that end up on their plate.

Come and see the animals, meet Santa, see the many stalls. Admission is £1 for adults and free to children when accompanied by an adult. Dogs on leads welcome.
