I have been catering at various festivals and events off and on with vegan / vegetarian food since the late 1980s. The first big festival was Glastonbury festival 1987 (my local festival) we had a pitch in the old top market, we were on the front row, and had a great view of the old Pyramid stage (which my pyramid kitchens are modeled on).
I did not have a stall name then, most of the festivals I catered at were free festivals, I just use to turn up, build the stall off the side of my old Commer truck (please see photo of stall 1986 – 1994) then make veggie burgers and get the frying pans on.
I have been catering at music festivals, big and small, green fayres and private functions pretty much since then, with different trucks, trailers & marques (please see photo of stall 1995 – 2003) I was called Pulse then. From the late 90s up to 2003, I catered at some of the big music festivals (Glastonbury, Reading, V, & my favorite at the time Womad), Pulse picked up some awards, which was nice (please see awards).
I now mainly cater at smaller boutique, more intimate festivals, but still cater at a few big ones, every now & then. You might also see me about in my Vegan street food van, as I am now taking my Vegan food, from the festival fields, to downtown on the streets!
Why we use organically grown, fairly sourced & Vegan produce
