It would be great to have a VF stall there. I'll post more info once the main organiser has sorted out how much space will be available etc.

We can now confirm that this event is definitely going ahead, and we're looking for volunteers to help set it up and take it down, as everything needs to be off the village green the same day. If you or any of your friends are interested, here's the deal:

You get a crew t-shirt to keep, plus free food and (non-alcoholic) drinks on the day. You also get half price admission to the evening do in The Ruby Lounge in town (8pm - late). Crashing space can be arranged for people coming from out of town.

Please note that all the people working on this event are doing so for free.

For more info, PM me or take a look at the Facebook page:

or the event site (currently being tarted up): http://www.manchesterveganandvegetarianfestival.co.uk

HF just informed me that we have to pay for the stall, which I am happy to pay for personally as it's a mere £20 (VF makes no money at all, in fact we probably owe money!) but we don't actually have any merchandise as such, or even publicity materials. I guess we could have a laptop with a dongle for internet access to use on the day, maybe sell some bars of some kind, maybe get some t-shirts made. Any ideas?

Thanks for offering to help out Talyn, any other volunteers are welcome, even if its just fora half hour :D

I have put it in my diary, little too far ahead to commit but hope I can came up for it. If we sell builders bars, we need to be careful we dont eat more than we sell :)

Will speak to buzz he might have some stuff we can sell.

Yeah, sorry about that. We did want to give VF and animal rescues free stalls, but the cost of hiring the village green has gone up and we have to pay for every stall that's there.

I think it's worth it, though, as the green is such a lovely spot with a relaxed atmosphere and vehicle access for unloading. If we'd picked Castlefield in the city centre, we'd have drunken Deansgate snobs sneering at us, a sloped site and no toilets. Wythenshawe Park is too hard to get to and hardly anybody has heard of it, most of the other parks aren't hireable, and doing it in a car park or indoor venue would just spoil the atmosphere.

Sounds like an ideal excuse to wear lycra and eat builders bars :)

I like your thinking, you dirty man!

Not quite sure what kind of a message it sends out to the Veg-curious though...
