Vegan Festival Eastbourne

East Sussex College Group & Sussex Vegan are excited to announce Vegan Festival Eastbourne. Come join us and celebrate Veganuary!

Vegan Festival Eastbourne

Friday, 25th January 2019

Veganuary is a month of all things vegan in January. With Veganism being the largest food trend of 2019, we are certain 2019 is going to be a hit! Join us for a FREE event that seeks to inspire and promote the benefits of an alternative lifestyle.  We will feature a recognised speaker, informative exhibitors, samples of delicious vegan food from vegan-friendly businesses, as well as vegan health and beauty products.


Vegan Festival Eastbourne


After the success of Vegan Festival Lewes, we managed to reach the vegan message to over 250,000 people via social media, tv, radio and newspapers. The impact could not have been better and we couldn't have done it without this amazing community.

As part of the collaborative Veganuary, Sussex Vegan and East Sussex College Group are hosting the first Vegan Festival Eastbourne and aim to make it bigger and better than before. We hope to welcome another 1,000+ into the college to explore what veganism has to offer in 2019.

We have a fantastic line up of vegan-friendly businesses supporting the Vegan Festival Eastbourne in the effort to educate and inform. Please do share the event and let friends and family know. 

Our Last Festival

Why not watch our video of Vegan Festival Lewes.  This was the first Vegan Festival in Lewes and a huge success hosted in collaboration with East Sussex College Lewes. Over 1,000 people attended, with 30 stalls and the event was featured on BBC, Latest TV, Sussex Express, Brighton and Hove Independent, The Argus and mentioned by etc magazine!


2018 has seen a vegan revolution. We see no signs of 2019 being any different. Join the vegan revolution, come down and discover the best veganism has to offer! 

So far 2018 has been a massive success for veganism, with a recent statistic suggesting 7% of the population are now vegan. Hundreds of new businesses are popping up, along with many retailers stocking vegan products.

Why Exhibit at Vegan Festival Eastbourne

Veganuary is an exciting time for Veganism! Our last vegan festival was a huge success with 1,000 attendees from students and staff to members of the local vegan community. Exhibitors pitches are just £10 and all revenue goes towards marketing the event to the large and hugely active vegan community of Eastbourne and surrounding areas. 

10,000+ Students

ESCG has approximately 10,000 students and adult learners in education. Partner schools of ESCG will be invited to the event. The event is open to all students, staff and the public. 

Why Friday?  

We decided this would make the Vegan Festival more impactful; educating and informing students of an alternative lifestyle free of animal products. And we do hope that a Friday will make it accessible for members of the public to join this exciting event.
