News //Glorious weekend at Olympia London with VegfestUK showcasing the best of veganism to around 13,500 visitors

Monday 24th October 2016

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!

 

Just under 15,000 people (13,500 visitors and 1,400 people working at the event) were at this hugely growing vegan lifestyle festival, which has become one of Europe’s biggest and most attractive vegan events and entered its 4th successive year at Olympia London. 

 

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.
