Yaoh has teamed up with Viva!, the worlds biggest animal rights group, to present the 2nd Bristol Vegan Fayre on October 30th 2004, at the L- Shed, Bristol. With over 80 businesses and organisations expected, representing every aspect of the Vegan lifestyle, the show boast a fat line up of entertainment and education, with a full kids area, stage, bands, DJ's, comedians, clowns and magicians complementing the busy talks and demos area, which sees Gareth Zeal, nutritional adviser to Manchester City FC, Robbie Hazeley (vegan bodybuilder), Mike Abrahams (Wild Oats), Juliet Gellatley (Viva!) and a host of others deliver a wide range of information. With loads of free tastings, a cocktail bar, comfy area, cafes , juice bars and a whole lot more, this really is a good day out for all the family - and best of all, its free!

Are you going to the fayre snaffler ?

I will be coming along to the Bristol Vegan Fair No Worries - This will be the first VEGAN fair I would have ever gone to, I do not know why I have never been to one.

I guess that all my visits have been to AR demos and related events along those lines up to now and of course October 1st is Hunting Season so I may have been out sabbing.

See you there - by the way I know Bristol Pretty well but any chance of a Multi-Map link please :D

I am defiantly going! I canít wait it sounds wicked! I have even put all the information about it on the Birmingham vegan meet up group message board www.vegan.meetup.com/142/ for those Brummies wanting to check it out. There is even a free bus there if people ring up and book a place. I have even put up posters around my uni to try get people interested! We should all be going, get a big crowd and show people that there are more of us than people think!

I AM SO EXCITED! Sorry I just canít believe that I am going to be surround by like minded people and all those GOODIES is making my mouth is water just thinking about it!

If you're going to the fayre, and you see someone dressed up in a big bright orange carrott outfit, that'll be me. Do come and say hello.

The best way to make sure you meet up with other vegan forumers is to swap mobile numbers and text them when you arrive. I know most people have done that already.

4 days to go and counting. :D

Oh, the carrott outfit, only kidding.
