Viva! Vegan Christmas Festival at Bristol Student Union
Tel: +44 (0)1179441000
‘Tis the season to be vegan! Local animal welfare charity Viva! are returning to their home city for an incredible Vegan Christmas Festival.
Bristol boasts an impressive array of Christmas markets and festive activities. Yet the overwhelming display of hog roasts and cheese platters can often leave the vegan and veg-curious community wanting more.
This December – building on the roaring success of last year – local vegan charity Viva! are returning to Bristol with their Viva! Vegan Christmas Festival to celebrate delicious festive plant-based foods.
Located in the dynamic and bustling Bristol Student Union, the vegan festival is home to over 40 stalls offering unique and seasonal delights. So whether you’re looking for outstanding ethical gifts or just some festive inspiration, the festival will be a brilliant day out.
Throughout the day, attendees will have the opportunity to taste vegan food, explore cruelty-free clothing and cosmetics, and learn more about health and nutrition.
A stellar line-up of talks and cookery demos will take place at the festival, including a live cookery demo from Michelin listed restaurant Acorn’s owner, Rich Buckley. As well as a talk from Viva!’s founder and director, Juliet Gellatley, on how going vegan can save the planet.
With indulgent vegan ice-cream from Booja-Booja and luxury soya-based candles by Avanti Candles - to hot street food from traders such as The Hogless Roast (the world's first hogless roast!) and No Baloney UK, the festival has everything you need for a compassionate Christmas.
Viva! founder and director Juliet Gellatley said:
“Interest in veganism has continued to soar globally and shows no signs of slowing down. Viva!’s vegan festivals are a fantastic way of bringing people together and showcasing the benefits of a vegan lifestyle. Regardless of dietary choices, we want everyone to come along and see just how wonderful vegan food can be. Christmas is a joyful time of year and we think there is no better way to spread peace and kindness during the festive season than to extend our compassion to all animals”
