Brighton Vegfest 2017
We started this years Brighton Vegfest on the Friday, setting up the stall and checking out the event before the hoards descended over the weekend.
Checking out the venue we met some new friends
There were even vans entering the venue this year!
Start of the Vegfest
Saturday morning saw a sea mist floating over the city, it made travel a little more difficult
Luckily we were already set-up and ready to go as the mist made it an interesting start to the weekend
Patrik holding the legendary prize of a lollyAs with previous years we had a pull-up challenge, with ladies needing to get 3 reps and guys needing to get 7 reps to get a prize. We started the challenge only the offering a prize of a lolly for everyone who succeeded
but the wonderful people at the Optibac stall offered everyone who completed the challenge a 14 days free supply of probiotics! So, thank those guys by popping over to them if you are looking for some probiotics!
I'll add in a short montage of the winners pictures below
Inverted row contest
While the pull-up challenge went on all over the weekend, Saturday was the day of our main contest. The inverted row contest had been moved to the main hall on the upper floor.We weren't how much interest we'd get for the contest as people had to find the new venue so we ere very pleased that people took the time to come and enjoy the event.
Matilda got 12 reps winner the female under 16 contest
Emilo got 20 reps winning our male under 16 contest
Hayley go second place female with 50 reps
Mike and Niccolo shared the second spot with 25 reps
Cindy amazed the crowd with a winning total of 61 reps
Matt got a fabulous 41 reps
We met loads of fantastic people over the weekend
The fantastic Paul Kerton (Hench Herbivore on youtube) spent most of Saturday at our stall giving out free advice and helping those trying to improve their health and fitness.
On Sunday we had Patrik Baboumian the World record holding Strongman at the stall to help give out some fantastic advice to those needing help plan their training and diets.
Amid the drama and excitement of the weekend, some people may have missed the infamous Knut (ex-editor of the magazine Vegan Views) proposing during the event. Sadly, he was rejected as all he could offer was a lolly. I did suggest that maybe he would have received a better result if he actually found out her name first, but Knut felt that wasn't important. better luck next time Knut :-)
So, finally it was Sunday evening and time to pack up. This year at the Brighton Vegfest had been a great success and we had gotten to know many of the people attending a lot better than we did before. Doing events can be surpisingly, but in the evening we went to Purezza (vegan pizza place) and a vegan beer festival (yes, they do exist!). So, by the end of the long weekend we were ready to pack up, enjoy the evening, then take a day or two to recover.
