Bristol Vegan Fayre 008 Over 11,000 people at this year's show

The BVF 08 enjoyed unprecedented numbers as the sun shone for the 6th year running on our humble attempts to portray the best of the UK vegan lifestyle. Over 130 stalls, 60 Talks and Demos, loads of entertainment and lots lots more resulted in a huge turn out from the vegan community, especially on Saturday when over 7,000 visited the show.

The feedback both from stallholders and public has been in the main excellent, and plans are already underway for the BVF 009.
