Veggies is volunteer-led, a community-based, social enterprise, promoting vegan catering and supporting campaigns for humans, other animals and the environment since 1984.
We continue to cater and campaign for a huge range of groups on many diverse issues, thanks to the support of many people who come with us to events or who help behind the scenes at our Nottingham base.
If you would like to help Veggies, feel free to come to our meeting, or see our Events Diary.
(If other events are running at Sumac we may find space elsewhere).
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.
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.

‘Warning: 12 years to limit climate chaos – share skills to save the planet’
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.

Brinsley Animal Rescue is dedicated to caring for animals. Our primary mission is to relieve the suffering of animals and birds. We take in sick and injured wildlife and birds, pets and farm animals to rescue them from injury, cruelty, hardship, and neglect.
We ensure they live out the remainder of their natural lives in the optimum physical and psychological comfort. Releasing wild animals and rehoming pets when possible, but always overseeing their care. We have a non destruct policy except when it is in the animals best interest.
We also have a charity ebay store at https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/brinsley_animal_rescue
