    Brighton Vegan Fayre - Saturday March 21st 2009


    The first ever Brighton Vegan Fayre makes its appearance at the high profile Brighton Centre on Saturday March 21st for one day only in what promises to be a flamboyant, exciting and hugely entertaining mix of all things vegan.

    Best of all its all in aid of Vegfam, to try and raise awareness of their Gimme 5campaign which started this year, as well as funds.

    Contact Yaoh for more info, website live in September 08, bookings available from September 7th 08.


    I will post more details as we receive them.

    Just been on the website and looks awesome! Don't know if can make it yet but definitely gonna try. Looks like more than just your average fayre with the music and everything too.

    Has anyone been to the Bristol Fayre? That's a bit closer to home for me

    Update:

    ''Vegan celebs flock to Brighton ’s biggest Vegan festival ever!

    Organisers of Brighton’s first ever Vegan Fayre on March 21st are thrilled to announce the first headline acts for what promises to be a superb family day out with entertainment on every level.

    Macka B Plays Brighton

    Fresh from his headline appearance at the Internationally renowned St Paul’s Carnival in Bristol last summer, reggae artist Macka B showcases his new vegan friendly single ‘Wha Me Eat’ during two performances at Brighton, including a short appearance in the Campaigns Room as well as a full acoustic set on the Main Stage. Truly a vegan champion as well as a master songwriter, Macka B and his band will bring a touch of magic and sunshine vibes to the whole occasion and we are truly blessed by his appearance! Greetings, Macka B, true reggae legend in da house!

    www.mackab.com


    The Clive Palmer Band plays Brighton !!

    The Clive Palmer Band – including legendary co - founder member of The Incredible String Band Mr Clive Palmer – is set to play the Brighton Vegan Fayre!

    The Incredible String Band were one of the most creative and influential original 60’s bands, and even played Woodstock! And now Clive Palmer, the Co – founder of this cult status outfit, is back on the road with his own band, and ready to play at the Brighton Vegan Fayre this year.


    Robb Johnson confirms for Brighton

    Robb is a singer songwriter with a deep interest in the vegan lifestyle and has kindly agreed to play at the first ever Brighton Vegan Fayre March 21st, with 3 short sets in the Campaigns Room, Kids Area & The Main Stage. Rob is Brighton based (well, Hove actually) and is guaranteed to draw a large crowd! In his own words….

    ‘I've played the London Vegan Festival (this year they kindly said i was the - ahem - headliner) & released an album with Ethical Wares called "MaximumRespect" (Irr047) entirely focussed on animal rights / vegan issues...I've been vegan for 19 years...and I have a new album out too…..

    David Straitjacket & Rubber Ritchie confirm appearances

    World famous escapologist David Straitjacket and Contortionist Rubber Ritchie confirm two live shows each at the Brighton Vegan Fayre. Both vegan, and both completely amazing, we are thrilled to welcome these two extraordinary entertainers to our first ever Brighton Bash!

    Aharrrgh!

    This vegan festival thing is spreading like a rash faster than on a sweaty frigate full of dirty shipmates anchored just off a small island in the tropic of dermatology.

    And that be just the tip of the iceberg - google Brighton Vegan Festival yourself and see what I mean.

    And that's be just the begining - there be The Bristol Vegan Fayre a few months later! They had over 12,000 landlubbers last year!

    How many this year?

    It really is isn't it? Fair play. I'm well up for it, and have heard of most of the celebs they're talking bout too. It's a musicthing. My dad was well into Clive Palmer, they're cool although nothing can touch Pink Floyd. Any chance do you reckon?

    I think Bristol was £12 (or a fiver per day, bizarrely), so I expect it to be somewhere around that mark.

    ^ The Brighton Centre is high profile, 4 times the size of Kensington and 4 times the price to hire too I imagine.

    Whatever the price to get in for the day, it will be worth it for sure

    from a message sent via Facebook:

    "Pete + Robbie will be presenting a talk about vegan bodybuilding – Pete runs the UK website www.veganbodybuilding.org and Robbie is a UK Bodybuilding Champion! Pete and Robbie will be hosting a Talk about training on a vegan diet and competitive Bodybuilding, as well as answering your questions, and then later in the day in the Campaigns Room they are running a competition – a Hammer Curl Contest, open to all vegan men and women, with super prizes for the winners!"

    i have no idea what a hammer curl is.

    Tickets for The Brighton Vegan Fayre are now on sale from www.yaoh.co.uk/catalog

    For a limited period only there is an ‘EarlyBird’ ticket for adults available.

    Prices for admission to the show (March 21st 09, from 11am – 7pm) are £8 for adults and £4 for kids under 12.

    But for a (very) short period only adult tickets are available at only £6.

    Advance ticket holders will receive guaranteed entry at any time and also priority entrance meaning less queuing, and will also receive a free entry into the Lucky Dip in the campaigns room, with a prize guaranteed!

    The early bird is designed especially for member of The Vegan Society, and also Vegan Fitness/Forum/Meetup members, and the vegan community in general.

    The organisers know it can be an expensive day out, but hope very much that the vegan community especially can still afford to come to the show and take advantage of all the fantastic shopping opportunities as well as the special offers and free tasters!

    See the show website www.veganfayre.co.uk for all the latest info and updates about what’s going on at the show!

    The Brighton Vegan Fayre will be continued next year and is provisionally booked for March 20th 2010, venue TBC.

    It will be focusing on vegan aspects only, with little or no entertainment.

    Stalls will be cheaper than 2009, and admission likely to be around the £3 mark.

    Further info to follow.
