Wonderpig took centre stage at VegfestUK Bristol 2015

Wonderpig took centre stage at VegfestUK Bristol 2015

Wonderpig, a certain pink fluffy pig recently resurrected from the VegfestUK office, took to the Amphitheatre stage on the Saturday May 23rd at VegfestUK Bristol 2015, displaying a range of fluorescent yellow posters with strong and clear ‘Go Vegan’ messages and playing with his turntables on stage with vigour and aplomb.

 

A lucky survivor from a certain intensive pig farm, Wonderpig is certainly no stranger to the kind of brutal treatments received by his fellow pigs and piglets in modern factory farms today because of our society’s demand for cheap accessible pork. He wasted no time in sharing his passion not to end up as a bacon butty to a large Amphitheatre crowd eager to find out what this pink cutie had to offer on a warm Saturday evening. Wonderpig combined his love for electronic dance music and his determination to help his fellow earthlings and his planet with a full 30 mins DJ set prepared straight from the Vegfest studio:

 

Big thanks to vegan blogger and activist Berty Justice for recording this short video of Wonderpig’s time on stage:

After performing on a sun-drenched Saturday evening, Wonderpig took a long shower and tucked into his pre-ordered concoction of vegan food treats somewhere in the Waterfront Square. He reappeared on Sunday afternoon, keeping himself busy with charity collections for the wonderful vegan charity A Well-Fed World from the USA. AWFW shares Wonderpig’s ideals in ending suffering to both animals and starving humans by means of promoting a vegan lifestyle. In particular, all charity collections went to supporting AWFW’s fabulous Ethiopian school lunch program which offers Ethiopian schoolchildren in need nutritious and healthy vegan meals. Many thank to the heroics of Wonderpig in addition to support by Vegfest’s wonderful crew of volunteers, a total of £600 was collected for AWFW over the whole weekend.

 

 

Wonderpig will be taking a well-earned break after his exploits at Vegfest Bristol. Meanwhile, anyone wishing to book in Wonderpig please contact the VegfestUK office, and Wonderpig will be well chuffed to offer his services. Of course Wonderpig and millions of his fellow farm animals will be absolutely over the moon if you go vegan :)
