Criteria – Events Listings

Hereby we clarify our criteria regarding approval of events submitted for listing on our events calendar:
  1. All events submitted must be 100% vegan, in the sense that
    • the events must involve vegan education,
    • the events do not promote the use of animals, and that
    • all exhibits (including food and drinks served, and any other products sold at the event) are 100% vegan. 
  2. Only UK-based events will be listed.

  3. Events that either fuel or are construed to be fuelling any forms of discrimination will not be listed. In particular, events that contain the following will not be listed (we have highlighted these 3 particular areas of discrimination as they are common within the vegan circles):
    • xenophobia (especially campaigns targeting specific practices in certain nations)
    • body shaming
    • misogyny
  4. VegfestUK Ltd is not responsible for cancellations or changes to other events that are listed on this website – users of this website are advised to double-check beforehand, information on the websites of the events that they are planning to visit, before making their travel arrangements.

  5. VegfestUK reserves the right not to publish or list any events on this website that we think do not fit our criteria. We also reserve the right to remove any event at any time without consultation should we wish, and without any liability for potential loss of income or damage to reputation. By listing an event on this site, the event organiser is in agreement with these criteria. 

Our definition of veganism

We recognise that the 1979 Vegan Society definition is our definition of veganism:

“A philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practicable—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals.”
