You will learn that a raw vegan diet can not only be easy, but also fun, delicious and simple to maintain for a lifetime!
Every year at Fruitfest, I hear people say :
“we had the best time of our life here!”
This is what Fruitfest is all about…and if this rings true for you, we want you to join us. No, we DEMAND it!
Before I tell you more about this year’s event. Let me tell you a little about the history.
Fruitfest History 2014-2018
In 2013, I personally attended 5 fruit festivals around the world.
(Who am I? My name is Ronnie Smith from Glasgow, Scotland, I founded the festival in 2014)
These festivals all had ONE thing in common: None of them were in the UK!
Yet, many of them had attendees that had travelled from the UK to be at these unique events. They had travelled ACROSS OCEANS to get an opportunity to learn about this lifestyle.
I knew there was a passionate and growing community pursuing and promoting this lifestyle in the UK. Thousands of people seemed to be part of many online forums.
Surely, a festival in the UK would be a huge success?
The idea came together to put on a festival in the UK. It seemed like the logical next step. But for me personally it was an almighty step into the unknown.
It was an opportunity to do something amazing yet so far out of my own comfort zone. I secured the help of friends but collectively none of us really had the experience…. we just had the passion to give it our best.
The first Fruitfest went ahead in June 2014. In many ways it was a huge success. Lots of people enjoyed the event. The food was great and the presenters felt they had given their very best presentations.
But the stark reality of the event was that it was a failure financially. There was nowhere near enough people in attendance to cover the large expenses involved.
I had been naive about how easy it would be. I thought we would immediately get the support of the raw vegan community in the UK. It was much harder than I thought! I had to look in the mirror and ask myself if it was worth continuing….
When I thought about this over and over I remembered that Fruitfest was not created for financial success. It was created to spread an important idea to as many people as possible. I was inspired by the good messages I had from many people talking about how much they loved the festival and were desperate to come back.
I also thought about what had inspired me to put on the event. I had never really thought about the business side or the money side. That wasn’t the main inspiration.
The exciting thing was the lives we could touch and the people we would meet. The excitement of helping to create a movement. A movement that could spread out far and touch people across the world and across the generations. The vision of the fruitfest was now clear….
To be a place that provided support, education and community
to people that are pursuing a raw vegan lifestyle.
But above that my vision is for the event and organisation to grow. It would be amazing to have thousands of people attending an enormous gathering with live music, large dance parties and thousands of tonnes of delicious exotic fruit.
Of course it is one step at a time. Right now, my aim is to provide incredible value to you, your friends and family at this event.
To that endeavour, I have made sure we have a collection of the best educators in the movement providing our education. We have a company we can rely on providing us with high quality fruit. We have the world’s best raw vegan chefs leading our kitchen.
On top of that, there will fitness, fun, games and time in abundance to meet and speak to your new friends and new tribe!
Fruitfest 2018, 200 attendees!
Why YOU should come to Fruit Fest 2019?
It’s easy to think,
“what can the fruit festival offer that I can’t get in books, articles and online videos?”
Listen, when I first became aware of the raw vegan diet I became a passionate and obsessed researcher on the subject. I watched countless hours of videos. I read the books. I read the articles…..
….. but I just couldn’t make it all work for me.
It wasn’t until I attended a fruit festival and met other people that I was able to make a long term change to the raw diet.
Not only were all my questions answered, which gave me a great deal of confidence, but I was able to meet and watch others that were doing this lifestyle long term. I was able to pick up tips from them I could not get from books.
Not only that, but I now had a commuity of new friends. Friends to share my journey with and stay inspired. That really helped me keep to the path.
They say that:
“we are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with”.
If that is true, then being surrounded by hundreds of people eating a raw vegan diet for 5 days will give you the best opportunity to go raw.
Healthy habits, attitudes and thoughts are infectious. We pick these up from people around us. We all go home with new habits that will help us live a healthier, longer life!
The danger of free online content is how do we know someone has not just made something up? Or perhaps they have got some information confused but they are presenting it as completely factual.
As Mark Twain jokingly said:
“be careful when reading health books; you may die of a misprint”
Some people online are quoting information from out of date books. Books that were pure opnion at the time and have either been disproven or have never been shown to be correct.
Even if you are being set just a little bit off course by innacurate information, over a lifetime that will mean you are way off where you want to be.
The special thing about the teachers at Fruitfest is that they have not only found something that works for them, they have found something that works for others. They have helped thousands of others to make that transition.
Why not come to Fruitfest and get the directions, the advice and information that will set you in the direction of your greatest health goals?
If health is a journey, we all need a North Star to navigate towards and a Navigator to steer us in the right direction. As long as we are heading in that direction, no matter how slow, we will inevitably be pulled, like a magnet towards our destiny.
The funny thing is that many of the better online teachers are students of our team of speakers at this festival.
Wouldn’t you rather go to the source directly? Hear them speak for yourself. Spend time with them. Eat dinner with them. Shake their hand. Discuss with them your worries and fears and test them with your hardest questions?
I know that having that experience, of meetings speakers face to face, really helped me to change for good.
Or maybe you know it all and don’t need to learn anything new?
What is inspiring to me at the festival is seeing people that have been raw for decades willing to sit down and listen to others. They say the mind is like a parachute; it works best when open!
Our teachers are dedicated to their own self education. They are committed and to making sure that the information that they put out there is completely accurate. They are motivated to learn more.
If you have been around this community long term, and have been raw for years, you may think you know it all. But pause for a moment. Is there really no scope for improvement in your health journey? Are there not new things you can learn?
Every year I challenge the speakers old and new to come up with highly original information. Brand new talks that they have never given before. There is always something new and fascinating to learn.
But even when I am listening to a talk I have heard before, I always take something new out of it. Something that I ignored before and didn’t realise was important.
At the festival, you will be surrounded by other long term raw vegans. This is a great opportunity to connect with like minded people and share your personal journey. If you have not been at the festival you don’t know how great that feels!
“But, Ronnie, I am new to this and not yet 100% raw. I’m not fit, my body is not where I want it to be. I worry that I will not be accepted into this community”
I have had so many friends say to me: “I wish I had come to the festival earlier….I was just scared that I wouldn’t fit in as I wasn’t raw or vegan yet”
In reality, if you are not raw or vegan yet, this is a great reason to come. It shows a lot of courage to come to something like this. Especially if you think that you might not fit in. Truthfully, you will be amazed at how quickly you will meet friends. The truth is that most people are just starting off and still have further to go.
The festival is a place to get that encouragement and move in the right direction. People of all shapes and sizes attend. All levels of fitness. No one is judged for not being perfect or not being 100% raw.
We are a supportive community and we know that judging and criticising people won’t help anyone. At the end of the day we have the same dream, to bring about a better, healthier world for everyone.

Through what they learned from this community and through the help and encouragement of the people in it they were able to recover to full health.

Location: Croft Farm Waterpark, Bredons Hardwick, Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, GL20 7EE
You can see more about this place at their website: www.croftfarmleisure.co.uk
This is a superb venue for our event. It is situated on an idyllic lake with access to water sport activities. This is an incredibly easy and central place to get to for many millions of people in the UK as it is not too far from a major motorway.
Traveling to and from the Fruit Festival
Registration on the 25th of July is between 1pm and 3pm. The festival will end at 3pm on the 29th of July.
Travelling by Car: For those of you coming by car, you can use the above postcode for your Sat Nav. Taken from Croft Farm website: “From the M5: Leave the M5 at junction 9. Head towards Tewkesbury and turn right at the first set of traffic lights, into Shannon Way. At the next set of traffic lights turn right and go over the motorway bridge. Take the first turning left, through a housing estate, and go over the motorway for a second time. At the T junction turn right onto the B4080 and then take the first left into Croft Farm.” From Tewkesbury: On entering Tewkesbury drivers should look for the B4080. This is on the NE side of the town, at the end of the High Street when leaving Tewkesbury in the Worcester direction. Croft Farm is in the hamlet of Bredon’s Hardwick, unmarked on most maps, but if you travel along the B4080 towards Bredon for 1.5 miles you will see the Park signs on the left-hand side, almost opposite the Cross Keys Inn.”
Traveling by Train The nearest train station is ‘Ashchurch for Tewkesbury’ a 7 minute drive away from Croft Farm (or a 40 minute walk along country roads with no pavements). Local taxi numbers are on the next page if you want to book a taxi in advance for when your train arrives/leaves. Trains to Ashchurch are frequent from major cities such as Manchester, Birmingham and London on both the Wednesday and the Sunday. If you want more train options you can also get a taxi from or to Cheltenham Spa (30 minutes drive away). To check train times from your nearest station go to www.nationalrail.com.
Trains From The Airport There are train links from all airports to Ashchurch on the Wednesday. You will then need to get a taxi from the train station to the festival. Last year the first trains from Ashchurch on Sunday was around 2pm. If you need to catch an earlier train you can get a taxi to Cheltenham Spa (30 minute drive) where trains start earlier and are more frequent. There are also bus options from Ashchurch to Cheltenham Spa if preferred.
To check different train times go to www.nationalrail.com To help plan your journey go to map.google.co.uk.
Festival Bus We hope to provide at least one festival bus this year. Our registration process will allow you to mark down your desire to travel in the bus. We will check how many people want this service and contact you with further details closer to the event.
Accommodation at The Event
Croft Farm has a number of different accommodation options. We have booked the chalets. These are simple yet comfortable and warm cabins. Most of these have 4 beds (2 bunk bed sets) and we have a limited number with just two beds (ideal for couples). You can view these on the Croft Farm website.
We will split these chalets in to 4 types: men only, women only, couples and families. There will also be the ability to camp at the event or stay offsite in your own or alternative accommodation for a reduced rate.
Are You Bringing Children?
We have some different prices to try to make it more affordable to bring children and to encourage families to attend. Of course, we see it as being very important that families get access to all aspects of this lifestyle.
We are going to have at least one volunteer who will be engaged in looking after children to allow parents to have some time to relax alone if they wish.
Perhaps you look at Fruit festials and wonder why anyone would pay this to attend a Fruit Festival?
The reason is simply that it’s hard to put a value on the benefits that have come to me from these festivals. What value can you place on friendships? What value can you place on inspiration or information? What value can you put on joy and fun?
Whenever I go to a fruit festival, I always think I am adding years to my life. The relaxation, the fun, the positivity and the renewed passion for life on top of the life changing information all make me realise that this will end up being one of the best investments ever.
As Benjamin Franklin said: “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest”
For Happiness Buy Experiences, Not Things
I recently read an article which stated that over the past decade, an abundance of psychology research has shown that experiences bring people more happiness than do possessions. Researchers at Cornell University in the US are working on exactly why this is…. but is it not SO TRUE?
I was speaking to a good friend recently and they told me:
“I don’t tend to buy things much- as you often
end up getting bored with them pretty quickly.
I prefer to invest in experiences, because
good memories last a lifetime“
On top of memories, the friendships that can be formed at these events can be so deep and so long lasting.
Fruit festivals seem to attract a genuinely great group of people; open, ready to learn, easy to talk to and with a zest for life that is rare in the world. Imagine going to a whole event filled with these kinds of people. It is a total joy!
This is such a rare experience, make sure you grasp it with both hands!
After all, aren’t we here on Earth to expereince all that life has to offer? The highs and lows, the emotions and rollercoasters. We should charge ahead boldy and make our life the adventure that it should be.
Yes, I’m ready to come to Fruitfest, how can I make this happen?
The festival is now open for registration, the earlier your register, the best price you will get
This is the price to attend for one adult in a shared cabin. The price covers your accommodation, all your food and access to all of the classes. As you can see, it compares favourably to the other events.
In fact, for what we offer we like to think we put on the most valuable Fruit Festival in the world!
There Is No Risk To You
Up to 2 weeks before the event, you can ask for and you will receive a 100% refund. This means you will be able to sign up now and should ANYTHING happen to you, you will receive ALL OF YOUR MONEY BACK. No cancellation fees or admin costs.
Surely, you will agree, that this gives you ultimate peace of mind in knowing you can register with no risk.

– Laurie Ellicott, USA
“Absolutely brilliant. The defining points for me are two things really; 1) the chance to meet so many like minded people, share stories, share your journey and hear their stories back. It’s just great to meet people with similar ideas and passions, to share and learn. And 2) Listening to really, really high quality speakers. If you’ve read the books you think you know a lot but you learn so much more here and it can only help you in your health and your continued growth”
– Jack Childs, England
“it’s been a great time at the festival, I’ve learned a lot, I’ve met lots of new people of course. I’m loving all the presentations. Everyone wants to be healthier, the festival gives you a glimpse of the life you could have” – –Kate Weight, England
“it’s been really great, I met some new friends, had some great fruit, did some really good activities every day. It’s been really good to get the knowledge” – Paul Turner, England
“the highlights for me were meeting other people and meeting other children as well because coming as a family unit, making friends with other vegetarian, vegan, fruit based children is pretty huge” – -Tracey Rose, Scotland
“I’ve had fruits I’ve never had before, I’ve had dragon fruit, i’ve had durian and to have the unlimited quantities of it has been so liberating, it’s really great. Sharing the fruit with everyone, it has this really nice sense of community”
– Michael Goodchild, The Vegan Activist
“I’m gonna take away ways of planning my life better, a general attitude of positivity and not letting myself get bogged down by things, making more time in my life for running and exercise. It’s made me feel so clean I don’t want to go away and start putting other things into my body again. It’s really given me a restart”
– Dawn Dakin, England
“This is our 25th wedding anniversary and instead of going somewhere exotic we’ve decided to come and celebrate at the fruit festival. It’s been a life changing experience we were a bit daunted coming here because we are new to raw foods and we didnt know anybody here and didn’t know anybody else doing raw food. We came here with an open mind and we’ve absolutely loved it and can’t wait to come back. We don’t want to go home!”
– Pamela and Michael Jones, Wales
“it’s not just about eating fruit it’s about getting healthier, taking responsibility for yourself and connecting with like minded people” –Marcel Cattin, Switzerland
“So often we are addicted, maybe smoking, alcohol, coffee all these things and we know that they’re doing our bodies harm. Here you get the information and the inspiration to change your life”
-Roger King, England
“It’s even better than I expected it to be, definitely. I didn’t really know what to expect, I’d never met another raw foodie so I was really, really excited about meeting other like minded people and everyone here is so nice. I’ve learned so much this week, it’s brilliant it’s definitely exceeded my expectations in every way” – –Alexandra McLean-Dridje, England
“I really enjoyed the festival because we met so many nice people, did so many nice exercises and had the best fruit ever. I really enjoyed it and will come back” –Sarah Merkel, Germany
“I just love everything about it, the people are really, really great, the food….amazing, the sports instruction- really helpful, and all the speakers have been excellent, the information has been really really good” –Karina Kasler, Germany
“the highlights have been the talks, definitely, going to the running classes as well, it surprised me how much I learned from those. I was surprised at how friendly everybody here is. You don’t normally get that instant communication and respect when you meet people in day to day life. I’d definitely come back in a second, it’s been one of the best experiences of my life” –Michelle Erkiert, England
“I came by myself and I was a bit nervous about coming and Ronnie had said it was like a big happy family and I didnt believe him! But I can’t believe how open and loving and warm and accepting- what a great place and atmosphere. The food has been great, so many recipe ideas to take home so it’s really helped me on my journey. And then, all the people you see on Facebook, that you follow are here and you can ask them questions. It’s been brilliant, I loved it and made so many friends and connections, it’s just been superb. My body feels so clean, it feels so natural and right that I just want to carry on”
