Great news! The UK’s leading vegan events team VegfestUK returns to the Brighton Centre in 2023 with a spectacular programme celebrating 20 years of vegan events!!
When: April 29th – 30th 2023
Where: The Brighton Centre
Whether you’re interested in exploring plant based lifestyles for the first time or an established vegetarian or vegan – this whopping indoor vegan event will be FREE for the public to attend, as Vegfest celebrates in style with a return to their original venue and focus! Packed with a more exciting showcase than ever before of everything vegan from products and services to talks and demos, elaborating further on their decision to offer free entry to the event for the public, the organisers explained:
“Three main reasons – we want to support vegan independent businesses, charities, campaigns and individuals during these challenging times and a huge crowd will do just that – and what better way to ensure a big crowd than make the event free to attend?
Importantly too – we recognise the current climate crisis facing us all and the part that animal agriculture plays in emissions and pollutants, and there is a real drive to adopt plant based lifestyles in the quest for net zero. Welcoming in thousands of people new to plant based options with free admission is our way of trying to help accelerate this process whilst we have the chance.
But thirdly – it’s our 20th anniversary and people everywhere have had a tough time recently – and that’s ongoing. We hope a big vegan party that’s free to attend in the middle of Brighton next Spring is some genuinely good news for people, and will help them celebrate this Christmas and look forward to a fabulous event in the spring that is set to really celebrate in style on multiple levels. It may be tough times, but for us it’s party time too – and we’re hard at work already planning the biggest vegan party in Brighton for a long time!”
And biggest it will be! This year there’ll be an expected 200+ exhibitors on show with a massive range of vegan goods and services to look forward to – as well as fascinating and informative talks, entertaining demos and captivating performances and other entertainment!
In this message from the organisers, they share that they’re as excited about their return to Brighton as we are:
“Vegfest started in Bristol in 2003 and we held our first vegan event in Brighton in 2009 – and for a whole decade we enjoyed back-to-back vegan events in the area with huge crowds and a real community feel.
Now more so than ever, it’s important to come together as independents, charities, sanctuaries, campaigns and individuals and celebrate the best of the vegan community and beyond.
Brighton has always been a hot bed of vegan options and the venue is not only super friendly and well organised, but also capable of entertaining thousands of people hungry for the best in plant based living.
Truthfully, we cannot wait to return. We love Brighton!”
Get down there this Spring and enjoy being spoilt for choice for an entire weekend as the vegan community unites to support this incredible event!
