We are delighted to be attending VegFest UK in Brighton this weekend on Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th March 2018. Make sure you get your advance tickets >>>> HERE
This event will be held at the Brighton Centre! There will be a massive showcase of plant-based living, with a cornucopia of unique plant-based products from around 200 stallholders, including drinks, bodycare and magazines, to clothing, footwear, bags, on top of superfoods, supplements and condiments. Both committed vegans and shopaholics in general will have a fabulous weekend perusing the supreme plant-based “cheeses”, chocolates, cakes, protein powders, T-shirts, tote bags, kombuchas, moisturisers, nail varnishes, coconut oils, “mayonnaise”, pizzas, beers, and many more exhibits on offer.
We will be there with a stall promoting our events around the UK, come along and talk to us and maybe purchase yourself or a loved one a ticket.
On the 12th March 2018 Virgin Trains announced on their social media page that they now offer a VEGAN BREAKFAST!! Yes … a vegan breakfast!
This breakfast is filled with mushrooms, hash browns, spinach and baked beans. The breakfast costs £3.90 which is a very reasonable price for being on a train as in some places this is normally more expensive. Also if this wasn’t enough you can also purchase a hot drink of tea or coffee with soya milk. Even though this is only breakfast that they have added into their menus it is a step in the right direction and hopefully start to offer many more vegan options on board, also hopefully this is a leading example and other transport companies start to offer more vegan options. We look forward to trying this out next time we travel and will give you all an update.
