  • Pig Freud spotted at Bristol Temple Meads station on way to Teen VGN summer camp

    The world’s first guitar playing pig Pig Freud was spotted at Bristol Temple Meads railway station as he made his way to performing live at the Teen VGN vegan summer camp, aimed at teenagers aged 11-17 years old at the Margam Discovery Centre in Port Talbot, Wales, on Wednesday August 17th 2016.


    Pig Freud is amongst a number of special guests at the camp who will be either doing educational talks or workshops, or entertaining a number of youngsters who are keen to mingle with each other and learn about the various aspects of veganism in a fun week out. It is expected that, being an animal himself, Pig Freud will encourage the young ones in attendance to stop using animals, and go vegan, live vegan, stay vegan and teach vegan in their communities after the camp.
