About this Event
After months of conjecture and uncertainty since the end of May’s VegfestUK Bristol 2017, when it was announced that the event would no longer continue at the outdoor Amphitheatre venue, followers of some of Europe’s biggest vegan festivals need wait no longer for news on what will happen to this historic event.
The VegfestUK organisers are jubilant to announce the newly renovated Ashton Gate, home of Bristol City Football and Rugby Clubs, as the new venue for its long-running Bristol event in May 2018. With the new prestigious and high-profile events space that is Ashton Gate, boasting top-class conference and hospitality facilities, VegfestUK Bristol is set to experience a significant makeover from its previous outdoor guise. A set of new features are planned to go alongside the traditional VegfestUK mix of stalls, food, talks, cookery demos, family activities and music to create an unrivalled experience for anyone interested in a vegan way of life.
Elated by the prospect of taking VegfestUK Bristol to a new level, organisers added: “We’re clearly thrilled to have the opportunity to work at a venue like Ashton Gate. The facilities there are second to none and this will bring a whole new experience for our visitors of vegan events in the UK.
“VegfestUK Bristol is one of the UK’s original vegan festivals and it’s now in its 16th continuous year, many thousands of visitors are in for a very pleasant surprise with a visitor experience unlike any other in the UK.”
