Event Preview: Victorious Festival 2021 – Portsmouth

Victorious Festival Logo

The letters are up and we cannot wait to get back to Victorious Festival. After a year out thanks to the pandemic that shall not be named, we’re bringing the vegan brownies back to Portsmouth and setting up shop on Southsea Common over the bank holiday weekend – 28/29 August 2021.

Gemma will be around our usual spot on Market Way on the way from the Main Stage to the real ale bar. As always, if you bring your own bag/box we will give you 50p off your total.

There will be an array of gorgeous, gooey brownies (100% vegan and free from palm oil – naturally) including Brookie (brownie/cookie hybrid), Salty Dog (salted caramel swirl) plus one of our brand NEW flavours: CHUNK – triple chocolate fudge. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more fudgy. That’s really the tip of the iceberg – there will be so many more flavours on offer.

Although Gemma will be flying solo, so won’t get much time to see many bands, you can guarantee she will be running away to watch Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs at the first opportunity. Click here to check out the full line up.

As well as music there’s the Kid’s Arena, market stalls, comedy and literacy stages and even a bloomin’ circus for crying out loud.

Day tickets are between £40 and £50 per adult, or £135 for the weekend – much less for littles! Head to their website for the most up to date info on prices and availability. If you’re travelling form further afar there is a camping option available, but it’s looking to sell out so get in there quickly!

Eat Portishead Banner

Come and get your vegan brownie fix at the award winning eat:Portishead! We’ll be setting up shop in the Dockside New area of the Marina and slinging all of your favourite fudgy brownies from 10am to 4pm tomorrow – Saturday 14th August.

We’ve got two NEW FLAVOURS for you to get in your gob, and boy are they tasty. Introducing: Hazelnut Praline and Triple Choc Fudge. As always, made with top quality fair trade 70% dark chocolate. Drool away, folks.

Dark Matters at Eat:Portishead

We will, of course, have all the classics, including Salty Dog (salted caramel swirl), Brookie (brownie/cookie hybrid) and New Yorker (peanut butter). All 100% vegan, 100% palm oil free, and 100% delish.

BYOB – Bring Your Own Box – and we’ll give you 50p off your total. That’s good for you and good for the planet. It’s a win, win – you’re welcome, Mother Nature.

Eat:Portishead is totally free to attend and supports 90 local food and drink businesses and producers from the south west. But wait, there’s more!

As well as tonnes of fab foodie stalls, there’s live music and street entertainers, plus lots of great little pubs along the Marina. Top Dark Matters tip: grab yourself a brownie and a pint of local cider and after you’ve had a mooch around the festival, take a lovely little walk along the coast. There might even be a spot of sunshine to bask in… maybe.

This will be our fourth year trading at eat:Portishead! We love this event for many reasons, one in particular is that it’s just 15 minutes as the crow flies from our brownie base. This means it’s super local, and helps us keep our carbon footprint as low as possible.

Not only that, we get to see, hang out with and support some of the BEST traders in the SW, maybe even the world? Including Boo Cottage Botanicals – Gemma has already got her order in for some totally gorge natural skincare, and she is loving it.

Ginger Beard’s Preserves will also be there – they do an A-MAZ-ING fermented scotch sriracha hot sauce. Seriously, what’s not to love?

So we’ll see you down in the Marina, yesyes?
