Saturday 25th November 2017 VFUK visited Aberdeen for regions second vegan festival of 2017. The event was held within the Pittodrie Stadium and the turn out was superb. To see what the attendees and the visitors had to say about this event (CLICK HERE).
Nando’s have created a new menu which now includes two vegan friendly burgers, normally for vegans this would be a place to avoid one of the reasons being their lack of vegan options however this looks as if things are starting to change as of today.
You can be tempted by the Supergreen Burger and the Sweet Potato & Butternut Burger.
According to a press release from Nando’s, “Whether it’s the Sweet Potato & Butternut Burger, packed full of the good stuff like sweet potato, butternut, red pepper, onion and edamame beans, or the Supergreen Burger, combining everything from broccoli to edamame beans to kale, veggie fans are in for a treat. Available as a burger, pitta or wrap, these winter-blues banishers are sure to be a hit!”
These vegans are veggie however if you ask for NO MAYO! They are vegan… There seems to have been a lot of people following in these footsteps recently such as McDonalds and Wagamama, hopefully this is a sign of things to come.
Edinburgh Ethical Winter Festival is now only a short time away, on Sunday 19th November 2017 VFUK will land at The Principal Edinburgh (previously known as the Roxburghe Hotel) with a Christmasy feel vegan festival, doors open 10:30am. Join vegan’s, vegetarians and veg-curious from across the UK for this family fun day out. Meanwhile check out some videos and pics from Edinburgh Vegan Festival 2016 (Click Here)
1. Award Nominated Vegan Festival
Vegan Festival UK was nominated last year for BEST LIVE EXPERIENCE at the Tyne & Wear Lifestyle Awards 2016, this was obviously a huge honour not only because of the public nominating us, but being a chosen as a finalist from hundreds of other amazing events throughout the
region, unfortunately we were piped to the post by the Great North Run (Drat!), the good news is that this year we won an award at the prestigious People – Environment – Achievement Awards. The P.E.A Awards in London on the 13th October, yeah!
2. Amazing Vegan Businesses
This year we have a huge selection of vegan business’s coming from across the UK. If you have ever been to one of our festivals before you may recognize some of our exhibitors, but this year we have many new companies you may have never heard of. If you are not vegan or vegetarian you will soon realise that removing animal products from our lives, is easier than you think. Come and talk to these amazing companies, maybe taste / try some of there fabulous products and support the vegan movement.
This is what people had to say about our previous event.
As with our previous festivals the stall holders encourage you to try their wares, this normally comes in the form of food tasting or drinks. This year we will be handing some vegan goodies and vouchers to vegan restaurants in the area. As with most things that are free – first come first served.
5. Lots Of Things To Do In Edinburgh This Christmas Time
While visiting our festival, why not check out the world famous Edinburgh’s Christmas Market (which is a amazing, this market runs for six-week during the festive season. Edinburgh’s Christmas runs from 17 November 2017 through to 7 January 2018. If your still around the city in the evening why not try one of the many vegan restaurants.
A Fair Ticket Price
One of the main aims of VFUK is to inform and educate the people of the UK on the benefit’s of going Vegan, by keeping our ticket prices to a minimum this allows the Veg-Curious to come along and see that going Vegan can improve your health, help the environment and save lives of animals. Ticket price range from £1 – £2 which is a very cheap fun day out.
VFUK Is The Only Family Run Vegan Festival
If your an exhibitor, speaker or a visitor just ask one of the team for help – Andrew (My Partner), Lewis (My Brother), Mark (My Dad), Dawn (My Mam) or even ask my son (Baby Mason) unfortunately he’s too young to talk (but you may get a smile).
We Really Hope You Can Make It To Edinurgh Vegan Festival 2017 And Support This Amazing Community.
