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 we have been selected as a finalist for the prestigious People – Environment – Achievement Awards. The P.E.A Awards will be held in London on the 13th October – so wish us luck.
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.
3. Awesome Vegan Speakers
We will be having a great line up of speakers ( Will Be Confirmed Soon )
4. Some Free Vegan Stuff
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.
After over a year of marketing, phone calls, emails, interviews and social media, the Sheffield 2nd annual Vegan Festival was finally here. We had a fair idea the event was going to be a success from online ticket sales and general interest, but no one could expected the huge turn out on the day. Cuttler’s Hall in Sheffield is not a small venue but the door staff needed to stop entry for a while as the venue was at maximum occupancy, this in turn caused a queue to form until some people left the building, not great for anyone at the wrong side of the queue, but great for veganism, as it shows the growth of the movement in the UK.
These type of events are a testament to the growing vegan movement here in the UK and abroad. Although we regularly see social media groups and forum with a massive followings, until the large numbers are observed first hand it sometimes can be unbelievable that there are that many like minded people around.
The feedback from the public and stall holders has been overwhelmingly positive and in fact some stall holders sold out before midday. The feedback from the public also was amazing, many took the time to talk to myself and my family about how much of a great experience they had.
I would like to thank everyone who was involved in Sheffield Vegan Festival, including all the stall holders that have traveled considerable distances to show their amazing product, services and causes. Huge thanks to the speakers that have spent many hours practicing their presentation to share with us, many in fact also traveled huge distances to do so. I would like to thank the staff and security Cuttler’s Hall for helping stall holders unload their vans and cars.
Latest social media feedback
Finally I would like to thank every single person that attended this event, everyone makes the effort to attend these events do their bit to help make the veganism movement stronger. We will no doubt be returning to Sheffield in 2018 bigger and better, meanwhile wish us luck for Edinburgh Vegan Festival to be held on the 19th November 2017.
