Nottingham Green Festival 2019 (TBC)

PROPOSED DATE

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.

British Juggling Convention 2019

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!

 

Nottingham Greyhound Demo

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.

 

Newark Vegan Festival

Newark’s first Vegan Festival in the beautiful Ballroom and Council Chambers at The Town Hall. Please get in touch if you would like to book a stall, do a talk, volunteer, or if you are a local charity who would like a free stall. All proceeds to animal causes.

For a form, or all info and enquiries please email shenalou97@googlemail.com

Sherwood Rise Residents Association

Sherwood Rise Residents Association (SRRA) will meet at the Sumac from 7.30 -9.30 pm.

This is an open meeting to any one who lives in Forest Fields, New Basford, Carrington and surrounding areas. The Residents Association plans the Stuff of Life Festival on Hedley Villas Park, the Winter Gathering in December & other activities.

The purpose of the Residents Association is to also offer people the space to share community concerns, build community relationships and offer informal friendship as people who live in the same neighbourhoods.

Having Sumac as an accessible  venue will I hope encourage more local people to come along.

There will be tea and cake and samosas!

People’s Kitchen, Nottingham

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.

Nottingham Community Market

Save the Earth Cooperative are putting on a Community Market in Sneinton, on the First Friday of each month, to promote social eating here in Nottingham, a place where families can come out and enjoy some food from local Nottinghamshire producers at a fair price

All hot food and drink will be priced between £2.00 to £3.50 (no more than £3.50 per portion). We feel that Nottingham like elsewhere in the country going out is very expensive for families. At festivals & markets street food can be as much as £8, so a family of 4 or 6 with drinks on top can be an expensive night out. We also feel as a society we need to move away from the current drinking culture up and down our high streets & towns and adopt a more European approach to socialising, for families to come out to have a drink and some food with a bit of entertainment at an affordable price.

We are also passionate about tackling loneliness in our communities and affordable social eating we feel is a great way to get out and make new friends.

The event will also highlight the importance of food education, tackling food waste, Social Chefs, Ethical Products & Crafts; supporting local businesses, artisans and crafts people. With recycling and the reduction of single use plastics we are hoping to be able to be almost 100% plastic & disposable free.
