    Visitors to Olympia London on the weekend October 22nd 23rd 2016 enjoyed a sumptuous and uplifting time at the VegfestUK London vegan festival, with a series of amazing vegan food, speakers, performers and other entertainment keep everyone informed, enlightened and entertained!

    Among the new exciting features of the event are the Vegan Athletes Summit on Saturday, with a number of highly achieving vegan sportspeople talking about their achievements, and a Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference on Sunday with a number of sessions on the intersections of various social justice issues from a vegan perspective.

     

    There was something to enjoy for almost everybody, with the VegfestUK combination of 250 stalls, 20 caterers, a Vegan Health Summit, a Vegan Activists Summit, Cookery Demos, a Living Raw Zone, Performances, a Mature Zone and a Teen Zone, striking a lovely balance between food, shopping, education, entertainment and socialising on a marvellous day out for all.

    Running since 2007, the awards are the highlight of the year for many vegan businesses, organisations, projects and people, with tens of thousands of votes cast each year. Small vegan businesses and charities especially benefit from the marketing and prestige the awards create, and they have become a much loved and much valued part of the UK vegan community.

     

    The VegfestUK Awards organisers added, “With over half a million people identifying as vegan, and half a million veggies actively seeking vegan options, there have been a huge explosion in vegan products, projects and organisations. The VegfestUK awards 2016 reflect both the quality and diversity within the vegan market today, and to be nominated for an award in 2016 is a huge achievement in itself. We expect all categories to be hugely contested”

  • How to get full value from being a stallholder at VegfestUK

    As VegfestUK moves into its 15th year pretty soon, we take this opportunity to thank all our previous and current stallholders for making these shows so vibrant and popular over the past 14 years – you have been amazing for us and without your contribution VegfestUK would never have got to the position it finds itself in today.

     

    We recognise also that for many of our current stallholders as well as any prospective stallholder, it is a big outlay to continue exhibiting at these events, so we have taken the time to compile this short manual to help you get full value out of your VegfestUK experience.
