Nottingham Green Festival 2021

Subject to covid-19 status

‘Warning: time is running out 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 in .

Veggies has catered and campaigned at the Green Festival, and the Peace Festival before it, for our entire 36 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.

Before the covid-19 crisis the Green Festival continued to break all records in terms of visitors & stalls.

With your support the 28th Nottingham Green Festival will return bigger & better on Sunday 12th September 2021.

You are therefore encouraged to support the regular fundraising events and join in with the planning group meetings.

Shambala Festival – Rebel Soul 2020 Cancelled

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

Whilst not catering at the event, Veggies will assist again with facilities for the Rebel Soul space, where there will be 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.

Earth First Summer Resistance

No  Earth First Summer Gathering this year – instead  Earth First is calling for a Summer Dispersal of Decentralised Days of Resistance.

Concerns around the spread of the virus mean we feel it’s safest not to organise a mass gathering this year but the need to actively resist capitalism and ecological destruction has never been greater.

Covid 19, climate change, racial inequality, poverty: These are all symptoms of a broken system that sees the earth’s resources as infinite, purely for human use and abuse, without a thought for the consequences, and which prioritises profit above all else and oppresses and divides people along racial, gender, class and other lines to maintain its power.

Dorset Radical Bookfair

Dorset’s fourth Radical Bookfair will take place on Saturday 8th August
2020 at the Corn Exchange, Municipal Buildings, High St East,
Dorchester, Dorset, DT1 1HF.

We’re a ten-minute walk from either railway station – Dorchester South
or West. The stalls will be on the ground floor, wheelchair access to
meeting rooms on first floor is via lift.

London Radical Bookfair

The Alliance of Radical Booksellers are hosting the London Radical Bookfair at Goldsmiths University, New Cross.
