LOCAL: Vegfest Brighton Info & Ticket Giveaway

Next month, Vegfest will be returning to Brighton.

Vegfest Brighton is one of Europe’s biggest vegan events, and will take place at the Brighton Centre on the 28th and 29th March. With the last 5 years being held at the Hove Centre, this change of venue means that Vegfest Brighton will be bigger and better than ever.

If you’re vegan, vegetarian, or simply interested in a healthy lifestyle, then this event is for you, with a massive range of events including, but not limited to, the UKs first Vegan Comedy Festival, the Party Political Conference on Saturday and a Well-Fed World Global Food Sustainability Conference on Sunday. Of course there will also be a fantastic food village with all the vegan treats you could possibly imagine (we suggest you skip breakfast on the morning you go), with fifteen vegan caterers and three all day bars as well.

There’s also plenty of shopping to be done over the course of the weekend, with loads of traders from vegan clothing and cosmetics to vegan chocolate, and everything in between.

This year, Brighton’s Green MP Caroline Lucas is opening the event, so we suggest you get down early to see what she has to say. Other special guests over the weekend will be giving talks on wellbeing, health and happiness, the details of which can be found in the event programme.

Other highlights include cookery demos, speed-dating, smoothie bikes, Hemp Expo and a New Product Showcase where you can learn about the best new vegan products on the market.

Now for the good bit…

We’ve teamed up with Vegfest Brighton to offer you the chance of winning TWO TICKETS to Vegfest in March! All you have to do is enter the competition below, it couldn’t be easier. Good luck!
