Welcome to Bristol Vegetarian and Vegan Society!
Our society is for everyone, whether you're vegan, vegetarian, trying to reduce your meat consumption or simply curious we'll have the event for you. This year things will run slightly different, but we'll still be having a wide range of events allowing you to test some of the best vegan food in the UK, visit and volunteer at local animal sanctuaries and take part in some of Bristol's amazing activism opportunities.
This year we’ll be bringing to our lovely members some of the following:
- Pub, café, and restaurant socials. Bristol has been named the vegan capital of the UK and has so many amazing places to eat that we want to share with you, and we'll be attempting to support independent vegan cafes and restaurants in a Covid safe manner
- Bring-and-share food events, picnics, and pot-lucks. There are few better things in life than eating together. We hope to bring lots of opportunity for sharing food together, and keep your eyes peeled for the Great Vegan Bake Off...
- Talks, Debates, and Film Screenings. These are ways for us all to get together and talk about the issues close to our heart, watch this space for guest speakers and society collaborations!
- Activism. For all the vegans/vegetarians out there who feel the calling to make changes in the world, we have an amazing opportunity to do this as a unified student group. Join the 'vegsoc activists' group on facebook or drop us an email if you are interested in taking part in some activism.
- Dean Farm Animal Sanctuary visits: Time to help out our amazing animal sanctuaries and get some cute cuddles in at the same time!
-Stay following our page for more.
