Tickets are on a sliding scale – pay what you can afford

The Earth Riot Tour is like a cloudburst of melody and rhythm mixed with open conversation about the uprising of our physical world. At a turning point in our lives, as shock extinction accelerates, how do we live and how do we love?

After performances across the country, the exuberant troupe will reach COP26 International Conference for Climate Change with two shows in Glasgow. Whether COP26 will be so pleased to see them remains to be seen!



Sunday 11th 2003 : Reverend Billy’s Sunday Service

From Veggies Archive

The possibly insane but indisputably sublime Reverend Billy brought his war on consumerism from New York city to Nottingham. Mixing art with activism, and activism with entertainment the Reverend performed one of his comic ‘services’ at Broadway, appropriately enough, since the building was originally a chapel.

During the service, Reverend Billy conferred ‘sainthood’ in the Church of No Shopping on Veggies’ Co-operative members Pat & Ronny.

Nottingham COP26 Coalition Rally. The Forest – Market Square

On 6 November 2021, as world leaders meet in Glasgow for the COP26 Global Climate Summit, towns and cities across the world will take to the streets demanding global climate justice.

In Nottingham we will be assembling at the Forest Recreation Ground at 1pm, marching down Mansfield Road at 2pm and rallying in the Market Square at 3pm.

Join us for #FoodByVeggies.


We are living through a period of multiple breaking points – from climate to covid to racism. We know that these crises not only overlap, but share the same cause. 
While no one can escape the impacts of these crises, those who have done least to cause them suffer the most. Across the world, the poorest people and communities of colour are too often those bearing the brunt of the climate crisis. From coastal villages in Norfolk whose sea-defenses are eroding faster than ever, to people living by the Niger Delta rivers blackened by oil spillage.

We are calling for:

NO MORE COOKING. THE BOOKS: No To Fossil Fuels, Net-zero And False Solutions!
– Fight For 1.5
– We Need Real Zero, Not Net Zero
– Keep It In The Ground: No New Fossil Fuel Investments Or Infrastructure
– Reject False Solutions: No To Carbon Markets And Risky And Unproven Technologies

REWIRE THE SYSTEM: Start The Justice Transition Now!
– Start The Justice Transition

GLOBAL CLIMATE JUSTICE: Reparations And Redistribution To The Global South!
– Fair share of effort from all rich countries
– Cancel the debts of Global South by all creditors
– Grant-based climate finance for the Global South
– Reparations for the loss and damage already happening in the Global South

Heading For Extinction (and what to do about it)

Climate change: HEADING FOR EXTINCTION – and what to do about it! (+ #FoodByVeggies!)

With all the terrifying reports of the devastation caused by extreme weather events from Australia to the Amazon, it can seem like this is beyond our control. Billions of animals lost, millions of hectares of land destroyed – it all seems so overwhelming. BUT, there are things we can do to prevent this all getting worse.

This talk is to let you know why the climate and ecological crisis have come to pass and what we can do to prevent this catastrophe from continuing. Extinction Rebellion’s ethos is non-violent mass civil disobedience to force governments to ACT NOW on the growing climate and ecological emergency.
