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 2019 Earth First Summer Gathering is happening at a squatted rural site near Durham.
Five days of skill-sharing for grassroots ecological direct action – make links, share ideas, and get involved in the struggles against open cast coal, fracking, new roads, climate criminals and more, followed by an action on Monday.
The Earth First! Summer Gathering is the place where people involved in radical ecological direct action – or those who want to be involved – get together for five days of time and space to talk, walk, share skills, learn, play, rant, find out what’s going on, find out what’s next, live outside, strategise, hang out, incite, laugh and conspire.
The workshops, networking and planning of actions at this low impact eco-living camp is organised non-hierarchically. It’s run without leaders by everyone who comes along, so come prepared to chip in!
The Gathering will have parallel workshops coordinated as an embedded UK Animal Rights Gathering.
Veggies will coordinate Campaign Catering, as well as a cafe space, tuck shop, vegan cake baking workshops and may host a PM Press Bookstall. To help Contact Veggies.

This year Veggies will be eligible again for the Ethical Caterer Award, having won it in 2015! We are continuing to push forward our minimal packaging policies – extending the use of proper mugs to serving soft drinks in returnable beakers, to reduce use of single use plastics & straws. We have now established distribution of our Ethical Consumer Best Buy Burger/Sosage Mixes to many other caterers to help raise their ethical sourcing. We have increased the hemp in the mix and aim soon to sourced our herbs, and possibly our hemp, from Bradley Nook Farm who, in 2017, donated it’s beef herd to all-life rescue and is transitioning, with our support, to vegan organic growing.
