Nottingham Green Festival 2018

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 33 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 26th Nottingham Green Festival and with your support it will be even bigger & better in 2018.

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

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 on Sunday the 3rd December 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.
