This weekend we were so excited to visit Vegan Summer Fest London! The event was so fun and we’ve got some highlights to share with you here. Keep going to the bottom to see our video highlights!
First off, there were SO MANY stalls. It was like a vegan paradise! All kinds of products were represented. You could get vegan protein powder, apparel with vegan slogans, cakes, chocolates, burgers, stews and chillis, pet food, vegan cheese, smoothies and milkshakes, frozen yoghurt, badges, crisps, tea, jewellery, alcohol, and so much more. We had a whale of a time, and it took us over an hour just to go around looking at the stalls before we even bought anything.
There were also some excellent talks going on. We attended a couple of them – one about the social scene for vegans in London, and another about the different restaurants and cafes serving vegan food throughout the city. I’ve got pages of notes and a lot of new venues to hit up so that we can bring you some more reviews in the future!
It was so amazing to be in a place where we could try everything. Whenever we were looking at a stall that sold “steaks” or “beef burgers” we knew that we could really eat them – and didn’t have to ask for an ingredients list. That’s so special and it’s so important for vegans and vegetarians to get that chance to try new things.
We also picked up a couple of VIP goodie bags – we’ve included an “unboxing” in our video highlights so you can see what was included in that! The video below tells the story of our day, so take a look and see what you missed. We posted many of these to our Instagram story through the day so make sure you follow along there to get real-time updates at all the events we attend.
We’re currently running a giveaway for tickets to the next leg of the festival in Brighton, and will be doing so again next time it comes to London, so enter those if you’d love to come and experience it for yourself.
We’ll be reviewing some of the products we picked up later – both the items from the free goodie bag, and those we chose to purchase for ourselves!
Here’s the video – enjoy, give it a share, and let us know in the comments if you have any questions or would like to know more about the events.
