VegfestUK 2015, London’s biggest veggie food festival, will play host to more than 200 exhibitors showcasing food and vegan lifestyle products when it takes place later this month.
Held at Kensington Olympia on 27 and 28 September, the event will include live cooking demonstrations from London’s most passionate chefs and notable foodies, including Pasquale Amico from Amico Bio, Vanessa Almeida from Essential Vegan and Christine Bailey, a superfood nutritionist. Raw food coaches and experts will also be on hand to demonstrate practical, energising recipes to a veggie-curious audience.
Following successful stints at both Bristol and Brighton dates earlier this year, the London show will offer a varied range of health-conscious, culinary treats, including delicacies from street food legends Bangwok, regional Asian dishes from The Hungry Gecko, vegan burgers from The Sunshine Kitchen and baked goods and authentic sushi outlets.
Alongside the food offering, VegfestUK will also see around 150 stalls dedicated to the best of vegan lifestyle, combined with entertainment, music and comedy.
Tim Barford and Alan Lee, organisers of VergfestUK, said: “We’re very excited about the 2015 event, our line-up of chefs and stalls is one of our strongest ever, and the current media interest in meat and dairy reduction is fuelling advance ticket sales to the point where capacity crowds are expected. It’s a real testament to what we do; getting people excited and interested about vegan lifestyles and healthy living.”
