Veggies 38th Anniversary (Events to be planned)

Veggies Catering Campaign was established as a fully vegan volunteer-led cooperative on 18th October 1984

Watch this space for events at Nottingham’s Sumac Centre and beyond.

This is what we got up on our 37th Anniversary Weekend in 2021

The Vegetarian Society says:

“Veggies Catering Campaign was set up in Autumn 1984 by four friends who were frustrated about the lack of vegetarian fast food available in Nottingham. Their intention was both to provide an ethical fast food stall in the city, and to take the veggie message to a wider audience by participating in demonstrations and gatherings. One of the first things the founders did was to take a giant veggieburger along to a Vegetarian Society protest outside the infamous Royal Smithfield show!

“Veggies has grown and evolved quite a lot over the last [26] years, but the ethical message has remained the same. All food served has been vegan from the start, and as minimally packaged and locally-sourced as possible and practical.

“In addition to producing the famous frozen burgers and sosages which are widely popular in Nottingham, compiling the Animal Rights calendar and Contacts Directory, helping run the Sumac Resource Centre, and fundraising for a range of good causes, Veggies has a tightly-packed events diary. The co-op provides food in all sorts of situations, from carrying boxes of samosas and cakes on protest marches, to cooking up a posh spread for a weddings and other parties. New volunteers are always welcome.”

From The History of Veggies:

In 1984, Tom and Clare from Nottingham’s animal rights group had the idea of presenting the manager of a local McDonalds with a huge veggieburger to represent an ethical alternative to the products of death and destruction sold there.

This was such a success that the logical next step was to do the same thing for the public every day, first from a mobile food van, then from early 1985 from a daily market stall, literally on the next street to McNasty.

Veggies has been a streetwise catering campaign ever since, reaching a highpoint with the 2006 Vegan Society Award as ‘Best Vegan Caterer’.

Many years of ‘campaign catering’ has kept Veggies on the front line. Whether driving along a drainage ditch to support campaigners protecting a peat moor, or jumping the barriers onto a reclaimed motorway, Veggies food always gets through.

From Peace News:

“While there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields”, said Tolstoy. This is why the vegan and peace movements are two sides of the same coin. “One struggle, one fight”, as they say in the animal rights movement.

Veggies has been seen at Molesworth US military base on a snow-strewn February morning in 1985; at Menwith Hill, Fylingdales and Aldermaston; at Faslane 365 and at Heckler & Koch offices in Nottingham, putting a spotlight on the world’s second largest supplier of small arms.

Veggies and Peace News have woven a path together through the decades. From PN’s time in Nottingham, not 100 yards from Veggies’ base at the Rainbow Centre – now evolved into the Sumac Centre, one of the emerging network of independent social centres – to catering for the first Peace News Summer Camp. Veggies’ summer tour also takes in the Animal Rights and Earth First Gatherings, Climate Camps and DSEi protests against the arms trade.

… and this is what we got up to in 2009

Veggies / Sumac Community Food Hub

Drop-In on Wednesdays & Sundays 12am – 4pm . Collection or delivery at other times by arrangement.

During 2020 we converted the Sumac Centre into a hub for the distribution of foods around our community, for those isolated at home or those that wish to support an ethical alternative to many supermarkets. As we prepare to reopen Sumac as a regular social centre we are reducing the range of fresh fruit & veg and moving towards establishing a diy Food Hub Club for access to ethical loose & packaged wholefoods and ecological household products.

Goods can be ordered from the stock list and order form by email to sales@veggies.org.uk, for collection from Sumac Centre or delivery to about one mile radius. There is a drop-in facility between 11am & 5pm on Sundays and Wednesdays.

You are encouraged to collect for isolated, at-risk, frail or elderly friends and neighbours too.

Many items come from bulk supplies. Cleaning materials & liquid foods may be dispensed in jars & bottles. Empty containers are welcome to maintain our supply.

We aim to stock ethically sourced, wholefood, fair-trade & organic products which, due to the broken food system, may be more expensive than cheap supermarket foods. However we can match supermarket prices and will look at deferred payment for those that have no income. We invite donations to a fund to cover this.

Everything that we stock is vegan and therefore suitable for most dietary, cultural & religious preferences. Gluten free items are also available.

Map of 1 mile radius of Veggies & Sumac CentreWe are concentrating on Forest Fields (NG7-6) & New Basford (NG7-7).  Local Mutual Aid Networks may be able to help if you need delivery further afield.

Please join our Food Hub group on facebook updates, new products, delivery/collection details etc, or see details on the product list, our Food Hub page or this Facebook post.


Shambala Festival – Rebel Soul 2022 – to be confirmed


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. However  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. 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. We bring you the people who will ask the big questions, and then help you answer them. Why is Shambala vegetarian? What is sex? 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.

Meat and fish-free Shambala has ‘Gone Off Dairy Milk Too

For 2022 Shambala say:

In 2016, we made the decision to remove meat and fish from our on-site food offering, for both the public and our festival staff.

For us, the decision was an environmental one. If we’re serious about being the most sustainable festival on the planet, we can’t ignore the undisputable evidence that a diet predominantly based on meat and fish is having a devastating effect on this little blue and green marble we call home.


Even more incredible was that 33% of you reporting reducing your meat and fish intake since the festival (that’s not counting the 30% of you that were already veggie or vegan).

SO.. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR 2021? Join the debate.

Sneinton ‘Vegan’ Market, Nottingham . Twice-monthly

Nottingham Vegan Market


On 31st October, 2015, in advance of World Vegan Day, Sneinton Market held an event to showcase great tasting vegan food. Following this a monthly vegan market in Nottingham was launched on 5th December 2015.

Nottingham’s Sneinton Vegan Market became the established event to regularly celebrate and showcase great tasting vegan food and drink, crafts, animal rescues & other products/services. However it has sadly lost its way and is no longer in tune with the values of the vegan community.

Originally Sneinton Market said:

“We are looking for VEGAN food traders and all kinds of cruelty free cosmetics, clothing, awareness raising, workshops. Product list must be approved by the market team to ensure the brief is met.”

This wording was from sneintonmarket.co.uk which is no longer available. The Sneinton Vegan Market website now lists all kinds of traders without any indication as to which are vegan and which are not. Some traders have sold non-vegan products at the ‘vegan’ market – efforts to clarify this have been begrudgingly made.

However there are several Nottingham vegan market traders that deserve our continued support, as they have few other trading opportunities.

Current vegan traders

This directory is compiled by Veggies Catering Campaign, independently of the market, to support past, present & future vegan traders.

Vegan traders are marked and where appropriate linked to their Vegan Traders Union profile Vegan Traders Union Icon

Veggies Catering Campaign provides pure vegan catering for many campaign events, as well as festival, fairs & markets, and family celebrations.

The menu includes our own burgers, handmade at our Sumac Centre base from organic ingredients. We also have samosas, our own sausage rolls and vegan cakes. Cakes are made by us with organic ingredients, including flour from Nottingham’s Greens Mill.

Many consider Veggies to be one of the most ethical caterers on the circuit. we have over 37 years of experience in award-winning vegan / fair trade / organic catering.

 Subject to confirmation we’ll be open on Saturday and Sunday from 11.00am – 5.00pm.

To get to this event, 20 miles from our Sumac Centre base, Veggies may emit approx 5kg CO2.

However by helping 250 people Eat Vegan we could “offset” 500 kg CO2.

If ONE customer goes Vegan For Life they will save 1.5 tonnes CO2 every year, as well as saving 4022 animals lives, and enabling all the world’s peoples to receive a Fair Share of the world’s resources. [carbon calculation references]

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.

(If other events are running at Sumac we may find space elsewhere).

Newcastle Vegan Market

Organised by the Vegan Market Co, this event takes over Grainger Street, in the heart of the city and right next to Grey’s Monument, for the first time in 2022.

The event will feature up to 40 stalls including a huge variety of vegan street food, artisan savouries, sweet bakes, craft cheeses, handmade cosmetics, ethical clothing & jewellery, arts & crafts, plastic-free, and charity stalls. All created by a handpicked selection of talented, ethical and sustainable businesses.​
