Scotland welcomes Europe's biggest vegan festival to Glasgow in December 2015 - Preceded by a Week-long new venture The Only Way is Ethics

Scotland welcomes Europe's biggest vegan festival to Glasgow in December 2015 - Preceded by a Week-long new venture The Only Way is Ethics

2015-03-22

Scotland is set to embrace a whole new world of healthy eating in 2015 with Vegfest arriving at SECC, Glasgow, on December 5th 6th.

 

This 2-day vegan food fest is preceded by a brand-new Glasgow-based venture The Only Way is Ethics comprising of a number of ethical, fairtrade, organic and vegan enterprises in the region. This joint venture is a result of months of planning and we are thrilled to be able to announce an event of this scale.

 

 

Without a doubt, we're beyond elated to be given the opportunity to bring our vegan festival and hence the benefits of healthy eating and vegan lifestyles to Glasgow this year. We're also privileged to be invited to organise a show at a venue as prestigious and high-profile as the SECC, and we're very excited at the prospect of making this show a huge success.

 

Vegfest Scotland is all about going vegan. It’s not about eating less meat, or choosing eggs over fish, or anything like that. It’s about going vegan, pure and simple. It’s a single issue campaign. Go Vegan. For the planet, for the animals, for your health, and for sustainable global food production. And it’s so easy. Vegfest Scotland will demonstrate just how easy it is to go vegan and stay vegan.

 

The inaugural Vegfest Scotland includes a number of exciting features to get healthy eating and vegan activism high on the agenda for many. They include:

  • a Health Summit on the Saturday,
  • an Activists Summit on the Sunday,
  • dozens of talks on Nutrition, Health, Lifestyle and Campaigns,
  • in-house Levy's Restaurant serving an all-vegan menu
  • plus 12 other specialist caterers,
  • around 120 stalls,
  • a Hemp Expo focusing on the industrial and medicinal benefits of hemp,
  • vegan information display areas,
  • vegan cookery demos,
  • kids cookery classes,
  • family entertainment,
  • live music,

and more! The show website will be live for bookings from early May 2015.

 

The Only Way is Ethics sees a number of events around Glasgow City Centre flourish in the week preceding Vegfest, and already there's been a lot of interest from different businesses, organisations, charities, and departments looking to get involved. Craig Tannock, owner of a number of vegan outlets in the Glasgow area, including the award-winning Mono restaurant and Stereo bar, was equally thrilled at the prospect of both The Only Way is Ethics and Vegfest Scotland debuting this winter.

 

Craig adds, “The Only Way is Ethics looks set to become an interesting and very different type of festival. Ending with Vegfest Scotland is going to be a great early festive present for vegans north of the border, and a fantastic way of finding out all about the vegan lifestyle. To the very committed and industrious organisers of Vegfest I would just like to say Welcome to Glasgow!”

 

Admission to Vegfest Scotland is by advance tickets as well as payment on the gate. Advance tickets are £5 a day and £8 for the whole weekend. These tickets will go on sale from July 2015 on the show website. Tickets on the gate are £8 for adults and £4 for claimants. Kids under 16 can enter for free.

 

The organisers of Vegfest Scotland also have 3 other big shows in Brighton (March 28th 29th), Bristol (May 23rd 24th) and London (October 10th 11th) this year – visit www.vegfest.co.uk for full details of these events, and stay tuned to the Vegfest Express website for all the latest vegan news around the globe.
