VegfestUK comes to the Brighton Centre on Saturday and Sunday, March 28 and 29, and offers an eclectic selection of 160 stalls.

The festival boasts a varied array of caterers providing irresistible delights, as well as its own series of stand-up comedy gigs.

The UK Vegan Comedy Festival takes place on both days and features well-known acts such as Carl Donnelly and Chris Stokes.

Carl became a stand-up comedian in 2005. His daft sense of humour saw him win awards like Chortle Best Newcomer 2007 and he became a regular at the UK’s best comedy clubs.

Chris Stokes is one of the few vegan comedians in the UK. His playful and intelligent stand-up has seen him appear on Dave’s One Night Stand and BBC Radios 4 and 5Live.

Other comedians at the festival include: Harriet Kemsley, Alasdair Beckett-King, Andrew O’Neill, Luke Graves and Lou Sanders.

Guilt-free eating is on tap for the whole weekend with food from the likes of Brownins, who offer a range of patties, kebabs and wraps with an evocative Caribbean spin, energy smoothie and juice connoisseurs Damage Limitation, world food experts and BBC Good Food Show winners, Fresh Rootz plus oriental curries and stir-fry outfit Gillie Food.

Other attractions include A Well-Fed World Global Food Sustainability Conference, Hemp Expo, cinema and Kids Cookery classes, as well as Nutrition and Health lectures from top industry professionals.

The festival is a standout date for those passionate about delicious food as well as those living a meat-reducing, ethical and vegan/vegetarian lifestyle.

VegfestUK organiser Alan Lee said: “VegfestUK is not only a great day out for the family, it’s the perfect event to discover new foods and learn more about healthy living.”
