The Story Of UK Fruitfest (Fruitfest History 2014-2018)

Fruitcamp 2013, 30 Attendees

In 2013, the founder of the UK Fruitfest, Ronnie Smith, put on a small event for friends in the north of England.  The idea was to gather together people he had met at Fruit Festivals around the world, who also happened to live in the UK.  Word spread quickly about the small gathering and all of a sudden people from around Europe were asking permission to attend.  Fruitcamp ended up have over 25 people attend from around the UK and Europe.  The positive feedback received from this event made those friends decide to put together a plan for something bigger.

Fruitfest 2014, 60 attendees

The friends agreed that a larger festival event could be a huge success.  This came together for the first time in 2014.  The philosophy of the event was to: “provide support, education and community to the raw vegan movement”

Fruitfest 2015, 95 Attendees

The first Fruitfest went ahead in June 2014. It was a huge success, attracting people from as far as Australia and the USA.  It was clear that there was a hunger and a thirst all over the world for an event that provided a high level of quality education on the raw vegan lifestyle but also provided incredible food and accommodation. 

Since then, word has spread and the festival has grown bigger and better each year. 


Fruitfest 2016, 121 Attendees

Kristina Carillo-Bucaram (Second time at UK Fruitfest!)

This will be Kristina’s second time at the UK Fruitfest and she will be playing a big role.  Not only will she be delivering the keynote speech at the start of the festival.  She will also be hosting a woman’s circle; a powerful experience of healing and support.

Also known as “FULLYRAW KRISTINA,” she has been widely recognized by many in her backyard, as well as across the globe, as the most popular RAW AND VEGAN CELEBRITY AND DIGITAL INFLUENCER of her time.

Her success and popularity can be attributed to her electric and passionate personality and also to her drive to spread the message of HEALTH & WELLNESS.

At the age of 18, she overcame Type 2 Diabetes (Hyperglycemic) by eating a FullyRaw Diet. This diet is now more widely recognizable as strictly fruits and vegetables in their raw and unprocessed states as found in nature.

Over the last 13 years, she has INSPIRED many, and to date, she claims one of the largest social followings in her genre.

Dr Doug Graham (5 time festival speaker)


Recognized as one of the fathers of the modern raw movement, Dr. Graham is guaranteed to educate, motivate, and inspire. He studied nutrition, primarily to enhance his own sports performance, from an early age. In college, where he majored in Health and Physical Education, he took every nutrition course offered. Going through his chiropractic training, he again took every nutrition course offered, studying nutrition every year while going through school.

When his interest in natural hygiene took hold in 1981, he started studying nutrition from a new slant, and with profoundly greater understanding. During the past thirty years, Dr. Graham’s interest and enthusiasm for nutrition has never waned. He has authored The 80/10/10 Diet, The High Energy Diet Recipe Guide, Prevention & Care of Athletic Injuries, Grain Damage, Nutrition and Athletic Performance, and the recently published Perpetual Health 365.

His most influential audio programs include Perfect Health, The Cause of Health, and Dr. Graham’s Health Series and he’s also created video seminars including Making Friends With Your Food and Raw Nutritional Science.

Always one to see the big picture, Dr. Graham has become a leader in all areas related to food, farming, diet, nutrition, culinary skills, and even the related environmental sciences. There truly are few people in the world who have been so focused on helping people overcome health problems through proper nutrition, nor any who have followed their own advice so successfully.

In his opinion, there is no need to reinvent anything but just to follow nature’s path and keep it simple. His biggest goal is to create a positive worldwide impact and passionately inspire and support as many people as possible to be healthier and happier so they can live more fulfilling lives. Jesse lives in the United States but is constantly traveling around the world and spends summers running a family retreat in Croatia.

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.”

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”

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!”

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.

“UK Fruit Festival has seriously been amazing, it’s my second time back and it’s getting better and better every single year. Really amazing lectures, amazing food, amazing connections with everyone. I’ve been to more lectures at this festival than ever and the education has bar none been really, really high. All the people had a lot of fun, a lot of heart and genuinely wanted to connect to each other, it was just awesome” – Chris Kendall, raw vegan chef and teacher

“the fruit’s been awesome, being in this beautiful area has been sweet, the accomodations are cool too, I love the little huts we’ve been staying in.

I’m excited to come back in the future for sure” – Alyse Brautigam, Raw Alignment
