Veggies ‘set to spend thousands’ at Worlds Biggest Vegan Event


National Vegetarian Week saw events and tastings across the UK but it is the week after that record numbers of veggies are set to gather at what is now the World’s biggest vegan event – and they are set to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds when they visit the Bristol Vegan Fayre on May 31st and June 1st 08. Leading vegan brands such as Bute Island Sheese and Fry’s vegetarian burgers and sausages will be on offer along with Plamil chocolate, Yaoh hemp products and many more – and a lot the products are on special offer, making the Bristol Vegan Fayre not only the biggest in numbers – but also in spend …

‘There are some simply stunning offers to be had’ says BVF organiser Tim Barford from Yaoh Hemp Products, ‘and this year we have put together a Show Specials booklet with  over 80 show discounts – including loads of Buy One Get One Free’s. Your average veggie/vegan family can literally save hundreds of pounds off their regular shop at this year’s show!’

And it looks like the BVF Show sponsors agree – ‘It’s so brilliant for shopping’ says Lisa Drummy from Beanie’s, now sponsoring the BVF for the fifth year on the trot. ‘I’m vegan and there’s so much good shopping to be had, I have to go round the stalls before the show opens to get everything! Our Fry’s range of veggieburgers  simply flies out, and this year we are doing a vegan ice cream stall as well with our award winning B’Nice rice ice cream, so we are going to be flat out all weekend. Good thing we have a big family to help us!!’

Meanwhile, vegan cheese makers Bute Island, creators of the Sheese range of both hard and creamy cheeses, and sponsors of the BVF for the second time, are coming all the way from Scotland to dazzle everyone with their top selling vegan range. ‘From the moment the gates opened at last years BVF, we were mobbed’ says Guy from Bute Island,’ and we couldn’t get the Sheese cut up and put on the crackers fast enough, before the whole lot was whisked off into smiling hungry mouths. None of us expected it to be that busy, but what fun we had!’

And leading vegan chocolate makers Plamil are also on board, with several thousand Plamil Chocolate Orange bars available on a Buy One Get One Free offer – in fact there’s even a whole BoGoF stall at the BVF 08, with Plamil, Yaoh, Good Oil, Jason, Rude Health, Viridian, Pertwood and Kasey’s products on offer along with other leading vegan brands

And with 140 stalls, caterers, a Healing Area, 60 Talks and Demos and some major entertainment the BVF 08 is packed to the rafters with everything you ever wanted to know about the healthiest lifestyle on the planet – and at the most brilliant prices too! Definitely the vegan shopping experience of the year!!!

The BVF 08 is on Saturday May 31st and Sunday June 1st from 11am to 9pm both days. Admittance £5 each day.
