Veganuary has joined forces with VegfestUK at their Brighton event next year, which is expected to attract over 10,000 visitors. Veganuary – a UK charity that supports people to try vegan in January – will host a ‘class of 2018’ celebration party.
The Veganuary class of 2018 party will include Veganuary participants, staff, ambassadors, friends of the campaign – and will be open to attendees of Brighton Vegfest too. The VegfestUK team, organisers of some of Europe’s biggest vegan festivals, are thrilled to have Veganuary on board at one of their signature vegan events on Sunday March 25th 2018. of the year in the UK.
“We are absolutely over the moon that the lovely team at Veganuary are joining us at the Brighton Centre in 2018,” said VegfestUK’s Alan Lee. “We have huge respect for the inspirational work they do, helping hundreds of thousands of people try vegan and stay vegan across the world. As it becomes more and more apparent why a vegan way of life is hugely important for the sustainable future of the planet, for our health, for the animals, Veganuary’s welcoming, cheerful and non-judgemental approach and outreach to non-vegans is absolutely vital. We’re delighted that Veganuary will be helping us round off Brighton Vegfest 2018 in style!”
The Veganuary team are really pleased to be hosting their class of 2018 celebration party in Brighton, too. Said Veganuary Chief Executive Simon Winch: “Come and celebrate with the Veganuary class of 2018 at Brighton Vegfest! Over the last four years, Veganuary has helped hundreds of thousands of people try vegan and stay vegan, in the UK and across the world. And what better way to celebrate completing Veganuary 2018 than with a great big celebration? Come along and help celebrate the success of those that tried vegan in January 2018. Expect cake. Expect bubbles. Expect laughter, famous faces, and a really good time! Come on down and help Veganuary’s class of 2018 celebrate in style!”
