Pitch Night – Good For Nothing Bath @ Boston Tea Party Alfred Street
Apr 19 @ 18:00 – 21:00

It’s simple: we’re looking for Projects + People in Bath to get involved with our 2nd Pitch Night.

Our Pitch Night has one simple goal – giving projects who need some ‘good for nothing’ the opportunity to connect with people who want to ‘do good in their hood’. This is how it works..

Projects – tell us your story…

Socially or environmentally focussed local projects will deliver a 3min pitch – who they are, what they do & why, and what help they need. The audience will provide feedback, suggestions and vote for the project they feel should receive some help from the good for nothing community.

The winning project will then become part of our Gig Night series – events that are tailored to deliver the expertise and support that the project needs to solve their challenges.

If you’re interesting in pitching please apply here.

People of Bath – listen and give….

The audience will discover some of the most exciting and innovative projects that are making a difference in our community. After every pitch there is an opportunity to give feedback, ideas, suggestions and vote for the project that they feel should win the Gig Night series.

If you want to help make good things happen in Bath, be part of a growing community of like minded and positive people, and make a difference in your city, then this event is for you.

All tickets include complimentary drinks & nibbles from BTP Alfred Street

VegfestUK Bristol 2018 @ Ashton Gate Stadium Bristol
May 26 @ 11:00 – May 27 @ 21:00

After months of conjecture and uncertainty since the end of May’s VegfestUK Bristol 2017, when it was announced that the event would no longer continue at the outdoor Amphitheatre venue, followers of some of Europe’s biggest vegan festivals need wait no longer for news on what will happen to this historic event.

The VegfestUK organisers are jubilant to announce the newly renovated Ashton Gate, home of Bristol City Football and Rugby Clubs, as the new venue for its long-running Bristol event in May 2018. With the new prestigious and high-profile events space that is Ashton Gate, boasting top-class conference and hospitality facilities, VegfestUK Bristol is set to experience a significant makeover from its previous outdoor guise. A set of new features are planned to go alongside the traditional VegfestUK mix of stalls, food, talks, cookery demos, family activities and music to create an unrivalled experience for anyone interested in a vegan way of life.

Elated by the prospect of taking VegfestUK Bristol to a new level, organisers added: “We’re clearly thrilled to have the opportunity to work at a venue like Ashton Gate. The facilities there are second to none and this will bring a whole new experience for our visitors of vegan events in the UK.

“VegfestUK Bristol is one of the UK’s original vegan festivals and it’s now in its 16th continuous year, many thousands of visitors are in for a very pleasant surprise with a visitor experience unlike any other in the UK.”

Ashton Gate’s managing director Mark Kelly added: “It is fantastic that we have been able to support VegFest 2018 to continue its history here in Bristol.

“Our executive head chef George Opondo is looking forward to working with organisers to make this one of the best vegan festivals in Europe. We’ve worked incredibly hard to establish Ashton Gate as a venue for high-quality food and catering and I think this will be an excellent addition to the international events that we are able to hold here.”

Running from 11am – 11pm on Saturday and from 11am – 9pm on Sunday, VegfestUK welcomes a whole new set of features as well as retaining its traditional flavours in the form of more than 200 stalls, spread over three main concourses. The flagship Lansdown Restaurant, which can hold up to a thousand theatre-style, will play host to a variety of educational talks and cookery demos, all of which will run until 6pm each day. Meanwhile, ten outdoor catering stalls will line Marina Dolman Way along the Lansdown Stand recreating a matchday “fan village” with local DJ’s and acoustic acts adding to the outdoor atmosphere. Comedians, live acts, magicians and a club night staged indoors during the evenings will all contribute to the carnival feel of the festival.

VegfestUK will also be working closely with Bristol City Football and Bristol Rugby to promote the event to sports fans, as well as their local engagement schemes within the Bristol community.

The show website is now live for stall bookings at www.bristol.vegfest.co.uk.

Advance tickets will go on sale from January 15th 2018 at www.bristol.vegfest.co.uk – tickets in advance are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for concessions (with advance ticket purchase subject to 10% booking fees), whilst tickets on the gate cost £12 for adults and £6 for concessions.

There is also the option of purchasing a VegfestUK supporter ticket for £25 to help support the event – each supporter ticket includes access to Level 3 plus a goody bag.

Kids under 16 can enter for free as long as they are accompanied by adults.

Please note we only share guest posts on here that are related to our event. We don’t share ticket sales from customers on this page – please use local vegan groups for this if you wish to resell your ticket thanks
