Everything you need to know about Viva! Vegan Christmas Festival in Bristol

Loading ....


One of the best things about Christmas is the delicious food that comes with it, including the tasty treats served at festive markets.

But the display of hog roasts and cheese platters can often leave the vegan and veggie communities feeling a little left out.

That doesn’t always have to be the case though, as the Viva! Vegan Christmas Festival demonstrates.

Building on the success of last year’s debut event, vegan charity Viva! is returning to the University of Bristol’s Student Union with a delicious celebration of festive plant-based foods.

Whether you’re looking for cracking ethical gifts for loved ones, some festive inspiration or just a yummy bite to eat, the festival promises to be a brilliant day out.

What’s on offer?

The festival will be home to more than 40 stalls offering ‘unique and seasonal delights’.

Throughout the day, attendees will have the opportunity to taste vegan food, explore cruelty-free clothing and cosmetics, and learn more about health and nutrition.

There will also be talks and cookery demonstrations, including a live demo from the owner of Michelin-listed restaurant Acorn, Rich Buckley.

People can also enjoy a talk from Viva! founder and director, Juliet Gellatley, on how going vegan can save the planet.

Some of the edible treats on offer include indulgent vegan ice cream from Booja-Booja and luxury soya-based candles made by Avanti Candles, while street food traders include The Hogless Roast – said to be the world’s first hogless roast and renowned for its quality.

Viva! founder and director Juliet Gellatley said: “Interest in veganism has continued to soar globally and shows no signs of slowing down.

“Viva!’s vegan festivals are a fantastic way of bringing people together and showcasing the benefits of a vegan lifestyle.

“Regardless of dietary choices, we want everyone to come along and see just how wonderful vegan food can be.

“Christmas is a joyful time of year and we think there is no better way to spread peace and kindness during the festive season than to extend our compassion to all animals.”


The event takes place at the University of Bristol’s Student Union on December 7.

Entry is just £3 on the door, £2 for students or VIP ticket for £12, which includes fast-track entry and a goody bag full of products, samples and discounts. Kids under the age of 16 go free.

All proceeds go back to Viva! to help the charity conduct undercover investigations, monitor the latest research on health and environmental issues and host vegan outreach events.
