Plans are already afoot for the next Bristol Vegan Fayre, to be held at the L Shed on October 29th 2005. Entrance is free and further information will be posted on this site in early 2005. The show will once again be organised by Yaoh, with sponsorship from Essential, Wild Oats, Health Unlimited, Beanies and also the Vegan Society, who are holding their AGM in Bristol the day after. Our special guests for 2005 will be The Bristol Cancer Help Centre, who are celebrating their 25th year, and Vegfam, who are feeding the hungry without exploiting animals. This is from the Yaoh (http://www.yaoh.co.uk/) website. Updates when available.

Will you be going ??


If Yaoh (http://www.yaoh.co.uk/) aren't going to produce a Fayre t-shirt, I may well do. Its still 7 months away, but the sooner the word gets out there the better.

If anyone has any ideas for designs, or is willing and able to help design the t-shirt, please do share either here or by pm'ing me. It needs to be as simple as poss, with as few colours as poss, both to keep the printing costs to a minimum, as I may well be paying for them out of my pocket.

Would you be interested in having one, and helping to advertise the fayre, if so pm me with the size required.

Thanks

More info about the fayre on www.yaoh.co.uk and www.veganbristol.makessense.co.uk :) :) :)

do you have company to actually produce the finished shirt, gert?

husband gets band tour shirts produced regularly so may have some companies that are quality and sensibly priced??

do you have company to actually produce the finished shirt, gert?I've had a very good quote from a local company that will supply the shirts as well. Theres no animal bits and bobs involved in the printing, including synthetic inks.

Thanks to all that have volunteered to be models. There will 25 shirts to be seen around the country just from you guys n gals on here.

If anyone else fancies being a mobile ad for the fayre, or anyone that will be, that knows someone else, pm me. Thanks again. ;)

I wish I had bought some art work to BVF 2004 to show you I will try a few ideas and send them to you if I get the chance but time is so short at the moment.

Thanks snaffler. ;)

It looks like the shirts will be hemp, supplied by Yaoh and may well be for sale on their website.

Has anyone else got any ideas for deisgns that could be used ? It needs to be simple to both design and print, remembering that probably only one ink colour will be used to keep costs to a minimum.

The t-shirt count update is that 39 veganforumers wil be happily wearing a BVF 2005 t-shirt some time soon. Thanks again. I'm seeing a man about designs tomorrow and will let you all know more when I do. ;)

I know its not for another 6 months, but who is thinking of coming along to the Bristol Vegan Fayre 2005 ??

All ideas considered, pm me. ;) See you at the fayre if not before. :)

I don't see why the design can't be on the back instead of the front, its just that each different design, printing both sides, and adding different colours etc etc is gonna increase the costs. I'll mention it though. :)

Does anyone know what time it starts?? Do I have enough time to get from Sheffield to Bristol (by train) and not miss too much. Definitely not travelling back after the fayre though - so will have to find/book hotel type thingy :D

Hmm, so realistically speaking by the time the train has arrived in Bristol,then go and get booked in at the hotel then made my way to the Fayre it'll be about 1pm, so will miss first three hours - bugger :(

Try and suss what places are around to stay at before you get here then you can always book ahead via telephone and go later, no rushing around the train station is fairly close to the BVF.....oh no I forgot if a female stays out for just one night its like mission impossible with luggage :D :D :D just kidding I will duck before I get a wap on the nose.

Gerts a more local knowledge guy he may know of places and he knows Tim who runs it pretty well so I am sure those two know of some place in Bristol - local people local knowledge propper Vicky Pollard Bristolians

Yep, will be booking the hotel ahead, been looking at one thats about 1/4 mile from Train Station and the price is reasonable (£45) but it would be nice to check in before and dump my bag (note singular 'BAG' - I travel light - cheeky beggar!! :D ) before heading off for the fayre. :)

You could always catch the train to Birmingham one day, join those that are coaching it from there to Bristol the next, and then back to Birmingham that night, and train it off to Sheffield the following morning. It'll mean two nights away rather than one perhaps, it could be cheaper, especially if someone can put you up, and will break up your travel to.

Don't think I don't want you to stay in Bristol, just adding another option thats all. If I had a big enough house, you could all stay at mine.....but I don't. :p

I've never stayed in a Youth Hostel in this country before, but the Bristol Youth Hostel (http://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/hostelpages/81.html) is just 2 minutes from the fayre venue.

Hope that helps someone. :)

Will there be detail nearer the time of a coach from Brum? - or is it just that everyone from this way usually gets on the same National Express? And how long does it usually take (I don't travel well!)?

Hi BitterSweet! You can contact Birmingham veggies and vegans at the is web site
http://www.bvv.org.uk/ They organised a coach down last year and it cost £5 to £10 return. I canít remember how long it took us to get there, an hour of two. 36 of us went in the end. I know that BVV havenít even thought about organising it yet, we are very busy sorting out among other things, the Heart of England feyer. To be honest we are in need of some volunteers to help with the group. For one thing, I am killing myself to get through the final few weeks of my degree never mind take on extra work with BVV. If you know anyone who would be interested in helping, please let them know about BVVís web ste. Thanks! ;)

Thanks for your post Trendygirl. ;)


Will there be detail nearer the time of a coach from Brum? - or is it just that everyone from this way usually gets on the same National Express? And how long does it usually take (I don't travel well!)?bittersweet, if it means anything, I booked a return between Bristol and Birmingham for a Saturday on Virgin trains, costing only £16. The journey is only about an hour and a half.

Anyone in South Wales, espsecially Cardiff, it wouldn't cost very much to bus or train it to Bristol for the fayre if you're up for it, would it ??

And to those in London, it is possible to get some coach tickets to travel between London and Bristol for as little as £1 if you book far enough in advance. See www.megabus.com (http://www.megabus.com/index.php) and www.nationalexpress.com (http://www.nationalexpress.com/save/funfares.cfm) (look for funfares).

Hope that helps some of you's. :)
