Last month Surrey Vegan Events held an Oktoberfest market based in Walton, so obviously my first stop was to scope out the beers!
Free entry to an event? How?! There were so many amazing brands under one roof, so don’t question it, just go!
As someone that’s born and bred in leafy green Surrey, I am always excited by anything vegan going on this way. From simple things such as finding a vegan sarnie in a shop to hearing about a vegan fair that includes local brands.
No shade on bigger brands (ily, too) but more local, smaller brands are where my interest lies, so when seeing the likes of LoveSeitan from Guildford and April’s Table from Weybridge on the list of stalls at Surrey Vegan Fair, I was on it!
I was lucky enough to be invited back to Gin Festival to review their 2018 event in Guildford and damn, I was excited!
I came across Kingston Yoga & Vegan Festival on Facebook and was interested straight away. A place with vegan food and yoga in one place sounded right up my street… and the cheapness, oh, the cheapness! £5 for a ticket?! It’s unusual to see any type of ticket that price anymore, even my daily train ticket to work costs more!
As a new vegan (well, pretty new, since January 2017) I’ve never had a chance to get myself to a vegan festival, so last weekend I did and I have to say it was one of the best days I have had in a long time. A place full of food I can actually eat and don’t have to think about it/read labels to determine if it’s okay for me – Perfection!
