The organisers of one of the UK’s biggest vegan events VegfestUK Brighton are elated to introduce a number of new features at the event on March 23rd 24th 2019 at the Brighton Centre.

Entering its 11th year of existence, VegfestUK Brighton plays host to a wide variety of topics in its programme of talks. Brand-new areas in 2019 include:

  • Animal Think Tank - with talks and panels focusing on 'how' a powerful, anti-speciesist movement can be built that can achieve Animal Justice, hosted by Dan Kidby, Laila Kassam and Mark Westcombe
     
  • Plant-Based Health - with talks hosted by Plant Based Health Professionals UK with an evidence-led, science-based approach to subjects on plant-based health and nutrition,
     
  • Permaculture – talks focusing on plant based Permaculture, Farming and Growing, hosted by Vegan Organic Network,
     
  • Fitness – with talks and panels on how a plant-based diet helps with recovery and optimal fitness, hosted by Christine Vardaros and Dave Sheahan,
     
  • Yoga and Wellness Zone - with a 2-day programme of rejuvenating yoga and wellness sessions run by yoga and vegan community group Yogific,
     
  • Radical Veganism - with talks exploring why it's necessary to address animal rights as an interconnected social movement, hosted by animal rights educator Christopher Sebastian.

 

The organisers added, “Since the inception of VegfestUK Brighton, the show has enjoyed plenty of interest from visitors from all backgrounds, and it’s a pleasure to offer our platform to experts in the fields of animal rights, health, permaculture, yoga and radical veganism, who will undoubtedly take the depth and breadth of topics discussed at VegfestUK to the next level. We are really looking forward to working with the aforementioned groups in delivering a quality programme of sessions and thus ensuring a memorable weekend for all in 2019.”

These new areas add to the popular current mix of

  • around 230 stalls - with a dazzling array of vegan products and special offers, including
     
  • 18 global caterers - full of mouthwatering cuisine from across the globe,

  • Art of Compassion Exhibition - showcasing art posters and other exhibits themed on veganism and animal rights,
     
  • Live performances running throughout the weekend.

 

The full lineup of speakers, performers, sessions and timetables for all areas will be announced from early February 2019 onwards.
