A list of participating stores and restaurants/cafes can be found above.

On Saturday 27th May 2017, several Gloucestershire Vegan Group members held a stall at Nailsworth Farmers Market, to publicise the Vegan Festival of Britain and promote cruelty-free living. Lots of people stopped by to sample vegan treats, chat to our friendly crew, and pick-up a leaflet promoting veganism. We’re grateful to Nailsworth’s very own vegan dining spot Asparagasm, who kindly donated some delicious treats for market-goers to try.

Nailsworth is a fantastically vegan-friendly town to visit, with the world’s first vegan-society certified football club Forest Green Rovers and the vibrant Asparagasm, a vegan eatery, with a workshop/kitchen space running cookery lessons. There are two independant health food shops selling vegan ingredients (which can sometimes be hard to find in supermarkets); Shiny Goodness and Green Spirit. All of this packed into a small Gloucestershire market town. If you stop by during The Vegan Festival of Britain, be sure to try out some of the participating venues.
