Green Credentials
VegfestUK Bristol is proud to be a part of Bristols European Green
Capital initiatives in 2015. We have in place the following green
policies in support of Bristols city-wide green initiatives:

FOOD
Only 100% vegan food will be served on site.
Why Vegan Food is good for the environment:
Livestock farming amounts to approximately 51% of
human-caused greenhouse gas emissions more than
the whole transport sector combined!
Vegan food contributes to far less air and water pollution
than animal-based food.
Vegan food can take on average 10 times less land and
100 tims less water to produce than animal-based food.

GENERATOR
Biodiesel generator to be used on site

DESIGN & PRINT

Distribution team put out suitable amounts in each outlet (not


leaving too many)
They collect and recycle any leftover flyers once the campaign
has finished.

All vehicles will be diesel powered.


Where economically viable, catalytic converters are fitted.
Paper and cardboard from both office and warehouse
operations is recycled, and waste aluminium is sold on
ensuring as much is used as possible.
All non-recyclable waste is collected and removed by a
respected and dependable disposal contractor.
Drying of materials is carried out in a separate area to other
operations, to ensure the process is as energy-efficient as
possible.

Vegan Athletes for Peace Cycle Ride


Organised by the worlds first vegan footballer Neil Robinson

In 2015, the Vegan Athletes for Peace


Cycling Team will commence,
journeying from Lands End to John
OGroats travelling almost 950 miles
in 9 days an average of 100 miles per
day!
The three-man team, comprising Dean
Howell, Neil Robinson, and Tris West,
aim to raise funds and awareness
for some amazing charities, promoting true health/nutrition,
humanitarian, environmental and anti-animal exploitation causes.
All donations will make a far reaching difference on many levels
to these causes. We are incredibly fortunate to live in such an
abundant environment, free to express ourselves, access to huge
resources and live peaceful lives. This is nothing short of a luxury in
this world in contrast with the billions of suffering, starving people
and animals whose voices and pain are unheard and unexpressed.
We all sleep under the same stars at night and breathe the same air;
we all have a right to discover our potential and purpose.
Please support us on this epic challenge & adventure and choose
the cause that resonates with you. To find out more, visit
www.veganathletesforpeace.com.

A Well-Fed World Ethiopian School


Lunch Programme (joint with
International Fund for Africa)
AWFW have recently partnered with the International Fund for
Africa to implement a long-term daily vegan meal plan and basic
health services in two schools in Ethiopias capital, Addis Ababa.
Current food availability in many Ethiopian schools is sporadic and
inadequate. Many children go without food and teachers even give
some of their own limited pay to help.
AWFWs partnership with IFA is developing a vegetable garden
and building bakeries to increase onsite food availability, and
to generate income for long-term supplementation and selfsustainability.
Fortunately, because of Ethiopias large Orthodox population
(who have long and dispersed periods of vegan fasting), schools
sometimes default to serving vegan food year-round, so no special
permissions or procedures for vegan school lunches are required.
The programs successes will be used to model improvements for
other schools around the city.
For full details about the school lunch programme, visit their
website www.awfw.org/ethiopia
Collections will be made on exit on both May 23rd 24th at
VegfestUK Bristol in support of this wonderful food initiative
please give generously, thanks!

LTJ Bukem feat. MC Ribbz

LTJ Bukem
LTJ Bukem took the drum and bass concept from a small venue off
Londons Charing Cross Road to the nations superclubs and then
onto the international stage. His records launched breakbeat into a
brand new galaxy of sound, and he writes Renaissance man for a
digital age.
The man known to his friends as Danny Williamson is the living
embodiment of the post-acid house entrepreneurial creative spirit.
He is a mild mannered energy flash whose panoramic musical
vision has found success in every area he has explored, lighting the
way with little more than a zest for life and a love of music.
twitter.com/therealLTJbukem
facebook.com/therealdannyltjbukem

Ian Silk
Reggae artist Ian Silk is originally
known by the name Kayton Barrett
and grew up in the parish of St
Elizabeth, Jamaica in a town called
Chocolate Hole. From the age of
10, Ians first inspiration came from
singing at home with his cousin
Dennis who played the drums
whilst Ian Silk sang.

Alfredo
Alfredos illustrious DJ career spans almost 30 years, including
famously his residency at Amnesia in Ibiza in 1984-1989, spreading
his own brand of Ibiza sound, strongly influencing the likes of
Danny Rampling, Paul Oakenfold and Nicky Holloway, who
brought his new Balearic sound back to the UK.
Throughout his lengthy career, he has been awarded numerous
awards, including DJ of the Decade in internationally renowned
DJ Magazine. He was also the first DJ ever to receive an award at
the Middem Awards in Cannes. More recently, in the 2005 Ibiza DJ
Awards, he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
alfredoibiza.com

In the mid 80s, Ian wrote his first song called Leave her alone,
little did he know that this song would be released nearly 20 years
later on his first album Higher Heights. Song writing was a way of
him expressing life experiences that he had encountered. His song
writing naturally progressed onto recording his songs at a popular
recording studio in Jamaica.
Ian has been singing alongside veteran reggae artist Jimmy London
performing in Bristol as part of the launch of a new monthly social
night at the Kuumba Community Centre, by local community
member R.O.O.T.S Shea Butter Trust & Kuumba Community Centre.

Flexi D
Flexi D is a shining star of
reggae music with over 20
years experience. With
an eye for talent and an
ear tuned to the audience,
he has made a name for
himself promoting his love
for Reggae.
Flexi D was born Dennis
Newell
in
Chocolate
Hole District, St Elizabeth
Jamaica. He knows how to
harness the sun, beach and
energy of his roots to get the
most out of his audience.
From the early age of ten, Ian
Silk and Flexi D started putting their music together with Ian singing
and Flexi D playing drums to an enthusiastic audience. Having an
evolving appreciation of the feel-good factor has brought Flexi D
commercial success worldwide.

idiotech
In 2004, idiotech achieved notoriety
with his remix of The Prodigys Girls,
featured on the unofficial download
album Always Outsiders, Never
Outdone (a mashed-up and remixed
version of their Always Outnumbered,
Never Outgunned album). Since then, he has completed a number
of official remixes for a range of major and independent label artists,
receiving praise from DJs such as Norman Cook and Mark Moore.
idiotech was included in the Xfm / Wall Of Sound A-Z of DJs,
playing at Cargo alongside everyone from Arthur Baker to Zoot
Woman. Other notable DJ gigs have seen him play The Secret
Garden Party, The Egg, Concorde2, and a headline slot at 93 Feet
East. And his DJ sets have been broadcast on national radio.

Wonderpig
Wonderpig is a retired superhero cartoon pig that lives in the
VegfestUK offices, having been adopted in 2007. Wonderpig is the
creation of a lovely bloke called Phil who was unable to provide
a home for Wonderpig after having multiple children himself. So
Wonderpig came to live with Vegfest.

Love Revolution

Tim Wellard

Love Revolutions live performances


are a moving experience which take
the audience on a journey which
is uplifting, empowering, poignant
and memorable. Their warmth,
onstage humour and personal
chemistry combine with passionate
delivery and enthusiasm which
draw onlookers into their world.
Love Revolutions lyrics - at various
times rousing, idealistic, personal
and universal - paint vivid pictures of their many travels, passions,
experiences and ideals. Their anthemic new material strikes a
chord and invariably has people singing along on first hearing.
loverevolutionmusic.com

Tim has been performing since


the 60s having started out at the
legendary Folk Cottage in Cornwall.
Recently playing with Clive Palmer,
founder of the Incredible String band,
Tim mixes a combination of blues folk
and original material on guitar, banjo
and vocals to produce an absorbing
and authentic sound that is well suited
to the Vegfest experience. Watch out
for some classics including the likes of
the odd Grateful Dead tune, plus a sprinkling of Johnny Cash and
Hank Williams, plus the threat of an unconfirmed appearance of a
pink fluffy pig on lead guitar at the end.

Damian Etherington

Mr Dowlands Midnight
Mr Dowlands Midnight is a unique, imaginative and highly original
band. We offer our audience a rich journey from West to East, from
ancient to modern and back with plenty of improvisation on the
way.

enjoyed the trios uniques sound.

Craig Sutton Flamenco Thief

The Phoenix Rose

Having performed over 200 concerts


in just ten months, The Flamenco
Thief, aka Craig Sutton, is rapidly
becoming one of Europes most
recognizable artists within the
underground DIY music scene. Craig
uses traditional flamenco guitar
techniques, but is best known for
working with a loop station to blend blend gypsy swing with
rumba-ska and hip-hop during energetic live performances.
theflamencothief.com

The Phoenix Rose lead singer Jarvis Smith wrote the new single,
Sick & Tired, a call to people who want an end to dictatorships and
manipulation, which are founding causes for the state of our planet.
Strong idea, but as Jarvis believes, music is the best way to spread
powerful and determined messages
in a peaceful manner. Sick & Tired
is a catalyst to make people consider
their world, and hopefully engages
them to realise their own capability in
insisting change.

Colin Smith - Are


you an 18 second
Parent?
Research highlights that three
out of four Doctors interrupt
their patients and do so on
average 18 seconds from the
start of the conversation. How
many times do we interrupt our
loved ones within 18 seconds.
Todays technology enables greater connection than ever, yet we
end up feeling more disconnected. How can we rediscover true
connection with each other again, have meaningful face-to-face
conversations and not feel fearful to show the other person our
true self? The answer lies in being and listening.

Gail Evans Detoxing Your


Emotions

behind her renowned, effective

living? Come along to our workshop and learn some tools to run or

Neutering to Save Lives, and Questions
and Answers about Dog Behaviour
Last year almost 8,000 stray and

spaying. Lisa will explain the pros
and cons of neutering, and answer
questions about how you can resolve

Ruth Hawe - Creative Writing as


Effective Activism
It has always been the power of fiction to
get under the normal radar which blocks
peoples reception of evolutionary
transformational information. Think
about the amazing films which have
altered your own perception and youll
begin to realise this, because of course
film and drama start with thoughts
written on paper.

Dean Bracher Educating Veganism


We ourselves are vegan and understand
the ethics and practical aspects of it. But
our children and younger generations
need that education and we can learn
how to share it with them. This talk will
prepare you with confidence that you
can be that educator of vegnaism, you
have the power to inspire and change the world through education.
Ill share my experience of giving 100s of school talks and cooking
demonstrations on veganism and together well share it with a
wider audience!

Tims current campaign in 2015


is to get a clear and consistent
go vegan, live vegan, stay vegan
message to go global. Tim
looks at various tools that are
available to utilise and examines
especially the use of radio both
live and pre-recorded to spread
the go vegan message.

Yvonne
Bishop-Weston,
Nutritional
Therapist BSc. Dip ION mBANT, will talk
about what children need in and out of their
diets to help them grow healthy bodies and
develop enquiring minds. Where the right
proteins, starchy carbs, essential fats, fruits
and veg can provide the nutrients they need
and where supplements may have their place. Yvonnes aim is to
provide advice based on science with practical ideas of how to
include in daily life. foodsforlife.co.uk

Juliet Gellatley - Why you dont need


Dairy
Is it natural and even safe to consume milk
after weaning? Juliet explores the many
health issues and new research showing
why dairy is linked to cancers including
breast, prostate and bowel; which foods are
known to fight against cancers; how natural
growth hormones in milk affect us and what are the dangers of milk
protein and saturated fats? Also, if we dont consume dairy where

Juliet Gellatley - Menopause Madness


Are you a hostage to your hormones?
Up to 70 per cent of British women
experience menopausal symptoms,
with many feeling unable to tell their
partners. But you dont need to suffer.
She explores what eases menopausal
symptoms safely and asks, does a vegan
diet help? Do natural supplements
work? What does the science say? And
HRT is the hype on its lack of safety
fair? viva.org.uk

Diet is a key player when it comes


to diabetes. A vegan diet can not
only help prevent type 2 diabetes,
it can also significantly improve
the health of diabetics, reducing
and even eliminating the need for
medication and reducing the risk
of health complications. It can also
help type 1 diabetics manage the
condition better and prevent numerous health issues. This talk
explains the three rules the D-Diet is based on and how to make
them work for you. viva.org.uk

Carbon Living and a

Our diet and lifestyle choices affect

where its from that matters.
Theres growing recognition that

A healthy, compassionate diet and lifestyle can also be sustainable.

VegfestUK Brighton 2015 review

VegfestUK just enjoyed a recordbreaking attendance of 12,000 visitors


at our latest event at the Brighton
Centre on March 28th 29th.
Survey results indicate that:

tangible vegan solutions to the food sustainability problem.


General Election year also called for a Party Political Conference at
which the UKs major political parties presented their manifestos
and engaged in debates on vegan issues.
Along the sustainability thread was a Hemp Expo with industry
leaders and notable hemp businesses presenting their expertise
on hemp.

- nearly 50% of our visitors were new to VegfestUK


- nearly 1,000 visitors decided to go vegan afterwards
- another 2,000 are moving towards veganism
- approximately 90% of all visitors are coming back next year

Plus there were over a dozen vegan comedians providing our


crowd with plenty of humour and laughter.
Add these to the rich mlange of 15 specialist vegan caterers,
nearly 200 stalls, dozens of talks and cookery demos, kids cookery
classes, a cinema among many other activities, and visitors to the
event have well and truly been armed with a wealth of knowledge
on how to go and stay vegan.
Were absolutely over the moon with both our attendance figures
and the statistics gathered from our survey. It has always been our
ultimate aim to convince the general public to go vegan through
our events. In years gone by, our combination of food, comedy and
music has worked a treat in making veganism more accessible to
the public. Nowadays, however, going vegan has actually got really
sexy, and we believe that there has never been a better time than
right now to up our emphasis on vegan education and put out a
consistent message to the public to go vegan.

If you wish to learn more about going vegan or convincing others to


follow suit, check out our 3 upcoming shows in 2015 Bristol (May
23rd 24th), London (October 10th 11th) and Scotland (December 5th
6th). Among the many highlights are brand-new vegan activists
workshops and summits which provide tools and ideas for
outreach. Dates for VegfestUK Brighton 2016 will be announced
soon. Visit vegfest.co.uk for full details of these blockbuster events.
