In the last years more people are working hard to make veggie fests possible in Europe. Today they happen in the UK, Italy, France, Germany and other countries. In a few years I hope to see Europe invaded by veggie festivals just as the US. I want to go to all of them too. Last March me and my family had the opportunity to go to our first food fest, VegFestUK in Brighton. We couldn’t make it to Bristol in May and won’t be able to go to London this October due to upcoming life changes. It doesn’t mean we didn’t want to go.
A vegan festival in London sounds beyond exciting. Even if London isn’t considered (anymore?) the most vegan-friendly city in the UK (Glasgow has now the title according to Peta), it’s still a great place for any vegan to be. And the VegFestUK London will be one of the best events happening in the city, so make sure you’ll be there!
“Visitors crying out for tips on making dark leafy greens taste good will receive no ends of stunning recipe ideas at over 20 cookery demos by world-class veggie chefs across the globe. The demos, kindly hosted by London’s first vegetarian cookery school Sutra Kitchens, feature gourmet chefs Chad Sarno and Fran Costigan from the US, along with artisan chocolatier Aneesh Popat, alkaline foods expert and Honestly Healthy founder Natasha Corrett, raw food gurus Karen Knowler, Christine Bailey, Saskia Fraser and many others. And kids won’t be left out of food-making at all – they can indulge themselves with Captain James Tea Cook’s awe-inspiring food experiments, smoothie bikes, sushi-making classes and other fun activities”. These are just a sneak peek of what you will see there, plus “top of 12 hand-picked caterers providing a continuous supply of mouthwatering hot foods from across the globe throughout the event”.
VegFestUK London takes place on October 5th and 6th, 11am-7pm both days, at Kensington Olympia (West Halls). Tickets to the show are priced at £10 (standard), £6 (concessions) and £2 (kids under 16).
