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.
Running from 11am – 11pm on Saturday and from 11am – 9pm on Sunday, VegfestUK welcomes a whole new set of features as well as retaining its traditional flavours in the form of more than 200 stalls, spread over three main concourses. The flagship Lansdown Restaurant, which can hold up to a thousand theatre-style, will play host to a variety of educational talks and cookery demos, all of which will run until 6pm each day.
Meanwhile, a number of outdoor catering stalls will line Marina Dolman Way along the Lansdown Stand recreating a matchday “fan village” with local DJ’s and acoustic acts adding to the outdoor atmosphere. Comedians, live acts, magicians and a club night staged indoors during the evenings will all contribute to the carnival feel of the festival.
