Veg Fest London Announcement and Ticket Giveaway.

When one giveaway closes another begins, or at least that's how it seems to be going on my blog right now! I'll get to that part in a minute though because I want to tell you why I'm getting really excited about London Veg Fest right now. There are two reasons... 

One, I missed it last year! I got back from California a couple of days after Veg Fest weekend, worst planning ever, but I just had to take advantage of a cheap flight deal! I'm excited about Considerit Chocolate, Lost and Found Caramels and Kizzy's Cookies, catering from Rupert's Street and Happy Maki and hitting up the sample tables of brands like Sheese, Vegusto and VBites. Yup, that all counts as one reason - food!

Two is that I'm going to be speaking there this year! At 4pm on Saturday in the Workshops Room I'm going to be discussing all things vegan travel related in A Vegan Abroad; a talk on everything from how to avoid arriving at your destination starving, hangry and light headed to tips on how to seek out the vegan specialities in the countries you're planning to visit. 


Myself and my friends at The Vegan Society will be opening up the floor for a Q&A session at the end, partly because I want to be as helpful as possible by answering your questions, and partly because I love to chat about travel! I'd love to hear about your favourite places to travel as a vegan too. I am beyond excited about this and I can't wait for September! It's going to be so fun!

To celebrate I'm giving away one pair of weekend tickets to the fest'. To enter you just need to leave a comment below telling me which product, company or talk you're most excited about checking out at Veg Fest (saying mine does not increase your chances of winning!). Please leave me some way to contact you, your blog, e-mail address or Twitter account, and make sure that you're free to attend Veg Fest on the weekend of the 27th and 28th of September. Sharing this competition on social media is not necessary but it would be nice of you if you're into that sort of thing! The competition closes at midnight on Monday July 21st.

  1. I'm really excited to hear Ms Cupcakes talk, I absolutely love her products and try to grab some at any Vegan fairs/ fest she's at. I'm also looking forward to the rawlicious showcase as i've been trying to go raw a couple of days a week so more info on that will be great! My contact details are bethdearden1@hotmail.co.uk :)

  2. Thanks to you, I got to go last year, and it would be greedy to ask to do so again (although I wouldn't say no!) but I do have an answer/request: I'd like (someone) to go to the Sheese stall and ask them why the melty smoked cheddar I bought and loved never appear in any shops (it's gone from their website, too) and indeed why no one seems to stock their melty varieties. I am bereft (and would stock up on loads). (And sorry, I don't really do social media...)

    1. Hey T! How awesome that you won the competition last year, you're more than welcome to enter again! I' 99% sure I know the Sheese answer though. The melty flavours you liked (and that I loved!) were re-branded under Tesco's Free From range so that's where you can find those products.

    2. Really?! My local Tesco has quite a small FF selection, but I'll have a look, or try to get to a bigger branch. I haven't tried all the options out there but so far the melty Sheese has been the only vegan cheese I've truly enjoyed. I was kicking myself for having bought only one block when I realised I couldn't get more.

  3. Ooh, that's fab that you are speaking. I'm planning to go this year and have just been in touch with my mates in London. not sure if it will be the Sat or Sun though. I've been following Considerit choc on Twitter so I'm excited to hear they will be there.

  5. Yay go you! I went last year and had an amazing time. It's the sort of thing that makes me wish I lived closer to London. (Please don't enter me in the competition, I just wanted to say well done!)

  6. Oooh there is so much I am looking forward to! There are the obvious stalls such as Ms. Cupcake, Goody Good Stuff, JP Turner (that 'cream' in his cakes is just too good!), as well as stocking up on some Koko and Moo Free. Then there are all the samples to try and the food that will be cooked there for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Also, although it may sound cheesy, I am really looking forward to hearing your talk. I love your blog and find your posts about travelling really interesting and helpful so to come along and hear you talk about all this too would be great! I've used my twitter name to post this. Good luck everyone! Whoever wins will be in for an awesome weekend! :-)

  7. I am geeking out about Brendan Brazier being there! Looking forward to your talk too (I found your blog looking for travel tips for upcoming adventures around Spain- will be back by VegFest though). :)

  8. Wills Vegan Shoes! They're in my inbox regularly but having two different sized feet makes it hard to buy online - so I need to see try some on to find my size!

  9. JOJO!!! I am going to be there by then! WHEEEEEEEEE! So excited that you are speaking and I'm so excited to be able to say I can't wait to see you! I am excited about Ananda foods doing vegan marshmallows because I think I am going to change careers and be a vegan marshmallow connoisseur.

  10. So excited about VegFest! Had such fun last year and I'll be back living in London when it rolls around in September too :)
    Never heard of Kizzy's cookies but they look incred.
