Families in Bristol and beyond will enjoy an amazing weekend at the upcoming VegfestUK Bristol plant-based food and lifestyle festival at Ashton Gate stadium (home of Bristol City football and rugby clubs) over the Bank Holiday Weekend, 26–27 May 2018, with literally something for everyone in the family: from eating and shopping to learning about healthy living from professional experts in the plant-based living circuit.
Visitors to this event can sample and purchase a wide array of plant-based foods from a selection of local food producers plus around 200 other businesses, with many products on one-off special discounts only at the event. Options include multi-flavoured and eclectic raw cakes from Elspeth’s Kitchen, lush chocolate truffles from Harth Truffles, rich and hearty pies from Pie Baby and vegan ready meals from VeGain Meals, with lots more stallholders to be confirmed.
Those looking for plant-based recipe ideas will have plenty to look forward to in the Cookery Demos
section, with chefs who are well versed in the unique flavours and textures of plant-based food ingredients bringing visitors an array of tips for either entertaining special guests or quick-bite meals on the go.
Those who wish to thrive in sports whilst eating 100% plant-based will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hook up with dozens of exclusively plant-fuelled sports stars from both within the UK and abroad. Athletes confirmed include champion kickboxer Omowale Adewale from New York City, international cyclist Christine Vardaros from Belgium, strongman Patrik Baboumian (the world’s strongest man in 2013) from Germany, alongside ultramarathon runner Fiona Oakes, triathletes Kate Strong and Dave Sheahan, powerlifter Pat Reeves, personal trainer Hench Herbivore, plus bodybuilders such as Jon Venus, Nimai Delgado, Izzi Von Kohler, Stephen Coote, Robert Webster and many others.
Meanwhile, those looking to supercharge their health will enjoy a treasure trove of advice from a number of experts on plant-based diets and optimum health. A number of health professionals alongside those having thrived on plant-based diets will be shedding light on both professional advice as well as personal experience to help you get the best out of plant-based living on a health level.
No festival is complete without a conveyor belt of mouth-watering food and VegfestUK Bristol is no different with up to 18 globally inspired caterers, an in-house restaurant and a pizzeria/bar all showcasing a delightful plant-based foodgasm throughout the weekend.
