Taking place at the Bristol Student Union on Queens Road on December 8th, the Bristol Viva! Vegan Christmas Festival will celebrate delicious festive plant-based foods.
The Vegan Christmas festival takes place from 10.30am to 5pm on Saturday, December 8th. Hosted by local animal welfare charity Viva!, the festival promises to be even bigger and better than last year’s event…
Expect over 90 stalls offering unique and seasonal goodies – whether you’re looking for ethical gifts or just some festive inspiration, there should be plenty there to catch your eye.
Throughout the day, attendees will have the opportunity to taste vegan food, explore cruelty-free clothing and cosmetics, and learn more about health and nutrition. From luxury soya-based candles by Avanti Candles – perfect for cosy winter evenings – to hot street food from traders such as No Beef Burgers, Mr Nice Pie, and the Greek Vegan Deli, the festival has everything you need for a compassionate Christmas.
You’ll also find plenty of talks and workshops, including advice on having a plastic-free holiday season by Bristol Green Councillor Martin Fodor, plus live cookery demonstrations featuring recipes from Acorn Restaurant’s Richard Buckley and recipes from Viva!’s own Vegan Christmas Guide.
This year also boasts the first Viva! Vegan Pub Quiz hosted by local vegan group Bristol Vegans.
Entry is just £3 on the door, £2 for students or VIP ticket for £13, which includes fast-track entry and a goody bag full of products, samples and discounts. Better yet – kids under the age of 16 go free.
All proceeds go back to the charity to help Viva! conduct important undercover investigations, monitor the latest research on health and environmental issues, and host vegan outreach events.
