Please note all products on offer at VegfestUK Brighton must be 100% vegan and must not include any animal products of any description.
And no advertising materials which promote the use of animal products can be displayed at the show.
Please note that bee pollen is not considered a vegan product.
All campaign groups that exhibit at VegfestUK must include vegan education as part of their outreach work. Please note that we cannot accept bookings from campaign groups with campaigns that may fuel xenophobia.
We do not ask that all our stallholders (as individuals) or workers are vegan, only that they are vegan friendly, respectful to vegans and that they are vegan on the days of the show.
We are only accepting sponsorship for 100% vegan products. By ‘100%’ we mean in terms of products and marketing for the brand, not the individuals who own or work within the business. We give our sponsors extensive marketing and only wish to promote vegan options rather than anything less.
