VegFest UK; Olympia Grand, Olympia Way, Hammersmith Road, London, W14; Sat 27 Oct-Sun 28 Oct; from £8
With a formidable reputation as the last word in vegan experiences, VegfestUK is returning to London for their final outing of 2019, bigger and more delicious than ever.
The festival has become a staple of Europe’s festival scene and will take place at Kensington Olympia for the seventh year, housing 320 food and lifestyle exhibitors and 200 speakers across the weekend of October 26th/27th 2019.
VegfestUK London leads the way for city-based festivals, boasting a lineup both topical and entertaining; including live fitness and cookery demos, two Kid’s areas, the Holistic Health Hub, Yogific yoga, Natural Therapy Zone and a Wildlife Summit. Industry professionals will take to the stage for lectures on the best in health-conscious living, while top performers and award-winning comedians will be live across the weekend. Also, in the light of a new wave of controversial vegan activism including Animal Rebellion, VegfestUK London will host a series of summits analyzing and debating the effectiveness of such actions.
The now legendary Food Village will showcase the cutting edge of vegan cuisine, where guests can indulge in an international guilt-free menu from the likes of Pig Out, offering the very best in juicy vegan burgers, hot dogs and creamy mac & cheese and Dr Cheem’s Superfood Odyssey, who put a sumptuous Indian twist to their flavorings.
Decadent vegan prawns and lobster can be enjoyed from Shelley’s Vegan Seafood, Brownin’s will offer African and Jamaican delights, while those with a sweet tooth can go wild with Booja Booja’s dairy-free ice-cream and the baked goodness of Ms. Cupcake.
