A four day festival beyond hedonism powered by wind, sun and people… just the best!
Educate for sustainability, create alternatives, frolic in fields. Powered by wind, sun & people, and Food by Veggies. Veggies hope again to be supporting a Co-operators Camp together with Radical Routes & others, in the Campaigns Zone.
This year or next Veggies will be eligible again for the Ethical Caterer Award, having won it in 2015! By August 2018 we hope to have established distribution of our Ethical Consumer Best Buy Burger/Sosage Mixes to many other caterers to help raise their ethical sourcing. We will have increased the hemp in the mix and will have 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.

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.
Europe’s biggest vegan festival VegfestUK returns to Bristol on May 26th & 27th 2018, with around 15,000 expected visitors over the weekend.
