It's Almost Thyme for VegFest London!
Saturday, November 11 from 10 am - 6 pm
Get ready for the best-ever VegFest London...we've grown! We have more space, more vendors and more speakers than ever before. And we want to help you maximize your VegFest experience (awesome food definitely included). Read on for our tips and tricks for navigating the big day...
WHAT TO BRING
New this year, and in keeping with the festival's theme of Community + Compassion + Plants, please consider bringing a vegan non-perishable item for donation to the London Food Bank. Examples include canned beans, canned fruit and vegetables, pasta and rice. We'll have a drop-off location at the event.
We encourage everyone to bring their reusable shopping bags and containers for your food and drink that you purchase. Also some of our vendors will only be handling cash sales, so if you plan to shop bring some cash. There are two ATMs onsite too. On your way in you can pick up your program so you can be sure you don't miss a beet.
And VegFest is even more fun with friends. So bring your whole squad and strike a pose at the Purdy Natural Photo Booth.
