Veggies Crew Meeting

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.

Brinsley Animal Rescue Christmas Open Day

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.

Stop the Arms Fair

The Defence & Security Equipment International arms fair (DSEI) sells everything from bullets to battleships, bringing together 1500 arms companies and representatives from over 100 countries. The results of DSEI are felt around the world as people are killed, economies are devastated, refugees are traumatised and peaceful protest is crushed.

The world’s arms industry arrives in London in September 2019, Stop the Arms Fair coalition will do all we can to stand in its way.

Veggies Food is HereVeggies will provide campaign catering at some point during the campaign. We hope you can join us. Reports from Veggies in 2013 & 2007

Shambala Festival – Rebel Soul 2019

Shambala is a creative, non-commercial, ethical and family-friendly festival with a wild side and completely independent from advertising and sponsorship!

In 2016 Shambala went Meat and fish free, to continue their mission to keep Shambala at the cutting edge of sustainable event organising.

“… we’re setting ourselves a challenge: to provide the most eye-popping, mouthwatering, colourful, hearty array of cuisine at Shambala 2016 without a single bit of meat or fish on sale. Not a sausage. Instead, keep your eyes peeled for … a range of delicious food from around the world, debates, talks and creative exploration of the wonderful world of food.

Shambala HQ is a mixed bag, with vegans, veggies and meat eaters co-existing harmoniously together, but the whole team agrees that it is important to be bold with our environmental stance, and encourage this debate.”

Rebel Soul

Veggies hope to assist again with facilities for the Rebel Soul space, with a programme of intellectual stimulation, music and performance that will challenge, inspire and fire you up. Whet your appetite: fresh-baked cake, pasties & samosas, teas & coffees (for donation), and fairtrade tuck shop.

Rebel Soul will be a whole area combining beautiful tents and beautiful people within to celebrate rebellion, resistance and exploring positive futures. Stimulation for your mind with workshop, displays, info and bookstall and, for your aural delectation, a fine line-up of music and poetry.

“Rebel Soul is politics thinly veiled as entertainment. In the day we host workshops and debates on hot topics run by people who know their fields inside out. We host the country’s frontline campaigners – from the people who ran the No More Page 3 campaign to the people spearheading the anti-fracking movement. We bring you the people who will ask the big questions, and then help you answer them, like why is Shambala vegetarian? what is sex? and what is race?”

By night we celebrate with bangin’ bands and DJs from punk to soca to techno, and from all over the world. We have a store full of books and zines and a tuck shop with hot drinks and delicious cakes. All our proceeds go to support grassroots campaigns – last year we funded groups supporting asylum seekers.

The Official Animal Rights March

UNITE FOR THE ANIMALS!

The Official Animal Rights March is an annual vegan march founded by UK animal rights organisation Surge. The march began in London in 2016 with 2,500 attendees and by 2018 TOARM succeeded in a global attendance of 28,000 vegans marching in 25 cities across the world, demanding an end to all animal oppression. In 2019 The Official Animal Rights March is taking place once again, with the mission to spread the message of animal liberation across the globe.

In order to make this march succeed, we need your help. Invite your friends, tell every vegan you meet, this is the day where we unite, where we stand up, rise up and say no more, not in our name.

The future is vegan, but we must continue to speak out on behalf of the animals until the day that their suffering ends.

All details, including the route will be published closer to the time. Meeting point in central London to be confirmed shortly.

Save the date, spread the word – and let’s make history for the animals.

The Official Animal Rights March is supported by HeartCure Collective, a Sheffield-based non-profit organisation.

Northern Green Gathering 2019

Northern Green Gathering will again be held at Bradley Nook Farm, the beautiful organic farm near Ashbourne in the Derbyshire Dales.

In 2017 Bradley Nook Farm donated its cows to Hillside Animal Rescue to live out their lives in sanctuary, and adopted a vegan organic future. We hope that this will inspire other Northern Green Gathering participants!

Northern Green Gathering is a small volunteer-run environmental/educational gathering focused around sustainable living and green campaigns.

A 4-day camping event with environmental workshops & campaigns, permaculture, organic veggie cafes, stalls, healers & alternative therapies, kids space, theatre & circus workshops, and a showcase of environment living in action, including solar power and wind power.

Veggies Food is HereVeggies hope to be catering. If you can help, contact us!

Earth First Summer Gathering 2019

The 2019 Earth First Summer Gathering is proposed for a rural site near the Pont Valley protection camp..

Five days of skill-sharing for grassroots ecological direct action – make links, share ideas, and get involved in the struggles against fracking, new roads and more

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 may have parallel workshops coordinated as an embedded UK Animal Rights Gathering.

Veggies Food is HereVeggies 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.
