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.

The 32nd British Juggling Convention (BJC 2019) will be held at Harvey Hadden Sports Village, Nottingham.
The British Juggling Convention, also known as BJC, is one of the four largest juggling conventions in the world. Attendance can vary, but BJCs have attracted between 700 – 1,000 people in recent years.
The event is traditionally held at a different location during the Easter holidays every year and is organised by a new team of volunteers; “run by jugglers for jugglers“.
The 2019 BJC starts on Wednesday 10th April, and runs through until Sunday 14th April with Food By Veggies!
A peaceful Demonstration to raise awareness about the underlying exploitation of Greyhounds in racing.
Sadly, deaths and serious injuries to dogs running on the tracks are relatively common, and the existence of a major track like Nottingham is responsible for the putting to death of about 500 greyhounds every year.
According to a Guardian article: “Greyhound tracks are closing and the industry isn’t doing enough to care for the thousands of dogs who face an uncertain fate”
*Raise awareness about the plight of greyhounds bred for racing.
*Campaign for the abolition of commercial greyhound racing.
*Promote greyhounds as pets.
*The government to pass legislation making it illegal to place or accept bets on greyhound racing.*
*The general public to NEVER attend or bet on greyhound racing, so the industry fades away through lack of support.
Demo at 6.30pm at Daleside Road Roundabout, (the entrance to Nottingham Greyhound Stadium).
Probably every 2 weeks, but call 07703 031667 to confirm.
A delightful dish is cooked and served at the Sumac Cafe by a different volunteer team each Saturday. Food is served at 7pm until all gone. The Forest Fields Social Club Bar follows from 7.30.
Food at Sumac is vegan, so is suitable for all diets and all cultures (call to ensure gluten free or other special options).
People’s Kitchen provides a great opportunity for people wishing to show off their cooking skills (whether personally vegan or not) or for novice cooks seeking an opportunity to learn more. Please contact us for more details.
The Sumac Centre is home of Veggies Catering Campaign, so other vegan campaigners are often around for support and information.
