Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or just veggie-curious, meat-shunners will be pleased to hear that VegFest is coming to the big smoke. Yep, the largest vegetarian food festival in the – back for its second year – will be taking over the cavernous Kensington Olympia space at the end of this month, following The London Acoustic Guitar Show and Employee Benefits Live. Sure. Get ready to try out free samples from the 200 animal-friendly stalls of food, body care and cosmetics from the likes of The Hungry Gecko and The Sunshine Kitchen. There’ll be the expected run of cookery demos, book signings and talks – and undoubtedly some gems among it all.
