Brighton Summer Vegan Festival - The Best Place to Get Me Some Vegan | Guest Post

AD | If you thought vegan festivals were just for vegans and veggies - think again. Everyone is enjoying vegan these days from Will.I.AM and Jennifer Lopez to Benedict Cumberbatch and Brad Pitt. Vegan week from Great British Bake Off showed us just how much fun you can have with vegan food and now the supermarkets appear to be competing with each other as to who can bring out the best new vegan goodies. Vegans now have their own cool menus in most mainstream restaurants, pubs and cafes. So if you’re currently tucking into your quarter pounder but starting to realise that there’s now something way more exciting out there and it’s vegan-shaped, hop along to Brighton Summer Vegan Festival on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June…


So what’s packed into the Brighton Summer Vegan Festival? Well, the answer is what’s not! There’s everything to tickle your taste buds from the latest gourmet vegan cheeses, indulgent creamy chocolates to some naughty vegan kebabs, and everything in between. It’s like all the food you’ve ever enjoyed but with the unhealthy bits taken out. You can try before you buy, and sample foods that are so new they haven’t even hit the shops yet. You can also bathe vegan too – with a range of deliciously scented soaps and handmade bath bombs from brands like Iuvo Skincare. And if you’re feeling stressed from a busy week, you can have the chance to chill out in a relaxing yoga session.


There’s something for everyone - with lots of cool children’s activities and entertainment on hand to amuse the little ones. And if your teenager is into the latest trends you can check out cool designer vegan labels such as the gorgeous range of ‘Viva La Vegan’ hoodies and Tees. Plus there’s a massive range of gifts and goodies including candles, jewellery, and even treats for animals. It’s also a great place to shop if you’re looking to go plastic-free.

If you’re looking to get more in-depth, the festival also features useful talks on nutrition and the vegan lifestyle as well as some inspiring, fun cookery demos to get you started.

The Brighton Summer Vegan Festival takes place on Saturday 8th June from 11:00am to 7:00pm and Sunday 9th June from 11:00am to 5:00pm at The Level, Union Road, Brighton BN1 4ZN, so there’s plenty time to browse around before lunch, enjoy some talks and demos, and round the day off with tea, or take something home for later. There are over 80 fantastic stalls, world food caterers, exciting cookery demos, inspirational talks, interactive workshops, yoga and children’s activities running throughout the day.


Festival organiser, Victoria Bryceson runs her events in partnership with animal welfare charity, Miracle's Mission. Here she talks about the event, “I’m really looking forward to our exciting new 2-day festival at The Level this year. It’s set to be even bigger and better than last year’s. We received so much positive feedback last year and there’s now so much demand that it’s becoming a regular sell-out event. I think it’s partly because people really love the friendly atmosphere. And also because it’s one of the best places to network and meet others who are vegan-curious too. The wonderful thing about the festival is that it’s for everyone whatever your lifestyle. Just come along and bring your friends for a great, fun weekend or day-out. You’ll have everything you need there, whether you’re looking for some retail-therapy, some ‘me’ time, precious family time or just a lovely meal out with some friends.”

Brighton Summer Vegan Festival is on Saturday 8th June from 11:00am to 7:00pm and Sunday 9th June from 11:00am to 5:00pm at The Level, Union Road, Brighton BN1 4ZN. Entry is just £5 per day (or £8 for both days) payable on the gate (under 16’s free), and this includes entry to all areas and activities. VIP tickets, £15, include fast track entry and a goody bag full of vegan products, samples, discounts and offers can be purchased in advance from Eventbrite but sell out quickly.
