Win tickets for VegFest
I love a good giveaway. Don’t you? Of course, some giveaways are superior to others and the prize up for grabs in this competition is definitely at the higher end of the scale.
You know all about VegFestUK. You are aware the Bristol chapter of this vegan lifestyle, food, education and music extravaganza has been a much loved event for over a decade. You know it is the biggest vegan show of its kind in Europe. Of course you are aware that people travel from all over the UK, Europe and the planet to attend. There isn’t a person reading this who isn’t already aware they can visit the official VegFestUK website here for all show information. I probably don’t need to tell you the event this year is spread across May 23, 24 and 25, 2014.
I won’t bore you with what you already know. Instead, here is some new information to arouse your interest.
VegFestUK Bristol organisers are generously giving me the opportunity to gift two pairs of tickets to the Friday and Saturday night concerts taking place as part of this year’s event. That’s right. One lucky winner will score two tickets to the Friday night gig and two tickets to the Saturday night gig.
That’s a fab prize. Check out the talent the winner will be experiencing.

VegFest UK is throwing a huge disco party featuring the Bristol Samba Band, ABBA Gold tribute band, the legendary Boney M feat. Maizie Williams and Gwen Dickey’s Rose Royce. There will also be musical action from DJ act Just a Couple of Mums.
Saturday May 24, 2014
VegFestUK goes punk on the Saturday night with live sets from Goldblade fronted by the awesome John Robb, Ruts DC and Peter Hook and the Light.
Here is how you can enter to win a pair of tickets for both nights.
Comment below telling me about your favourite musical act. Make it funny and interesting. Share tales of concert experiences, first records, obsessions gone wrong or anything related to your musical pick. Your favourite band, singer or performer does not have to be appearing at VegFestUK in order to mention them.
It is that simple. The competition will close midnight April 30, 2014. I will pick a winner based on how amusing/engaging the entry is but I’m sorry to say I can’t choose someone I work with or am friendly with already. The tickets will be sent to the winner via post from VegFestUK organisers. You will need to leave a way for me to contact you in the instance you are the winner. A link to your Twitter account would be fine.

Right – hot on the heels of baking my first vegan cake (choc fudge – unf – http://andillremember.wordpress.com/2014/04/14/vegan-chocolate-fudge-cake-yes/) I just had to enter this. Thank you for giving me this opportunity!
My favourite musical act? Hands Down. His name is Otway. John Otway.
The man is a musical genius; though he bangs on about being ‘Rock and Roll’s Greatest Failure’, I’m afraid he doesn’t get to take that accolade.
He had me from his appearance on the Old Grey Whistle Test – thank Time Berners-Lee for the internet; http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=john+otway+old+grey+whistle+test&docid=608022061886603567&mid=A75BD681288ACCAEEDBDA75BD681288ACCAEEDBD&view=detail&FORM=VIRE3#view=detail&mid=A75BD681288ACCAEEDBDA75BD681288ACCAEEDBD
I have watched this so many times. Until my face aches. Poor John.
Seeing the man live is just as terrifying – when he is with his big band you just know that anything could happen. ‘Headbutts’ has me covering my eyes.
On his own, with his acoustic guitar, he is magical. Songs like ‘The Best Dream’ and ‘Poetry and Jazz’ are utterly captivating.
And yes – he has a tendency to take his top off. He knows how to make his audience swoon.
Cor baby, that’s really free!
Well my first record…yes that’s vinyl was summer nights from grease…my auntie dot bought it for me and I wet myself with excitement . Lol. My first ever concert would of been wham! The final but hey oh I was too young so instead it was take that…..yayyyyy. I did though have my smash hits collect over four weeks poster of wham still up on my wall until I was about twenty.
