Leeds Vegan Winterfest 2016

Curl and Press contest...
Female contest...
Male contest...



Leeds was always going to be a tough venue for us.  We had to do it in a day which meant hours of traveling from Brighton to Leeds and back in one day! It was an early start for us, but upon arrival we found queues of people stretching around the building waiting to get in!


The event was spread over a few floors and also had stalls outside.  There was so much there, that one building was not enough!
We were a little late arriving, so we didn't have much time to to look around, we had to rush and set up.

Curl and Press contest

The curl and press is a new event we introduced this year at selected events. For the ladies we use a 7Kg dumbbell and for the men we use a 15Kg dumbbell. The contest is for maximum repetitions.  It is a lot of fun and everyone who enters gets a prize.


As usual we'd like you to take a moment to check out our sponsors.  The event can only happen due to these companies giving us support so we can give everybody a prize, so support them, so they continue to support us.

So, that was the end of our day in Leeds, afterwards we had a very long journey back to Brighton. It was a long trip, but worth it.  I hope everyone had as much fun as we did and I am looking forward to seeing these events grow over the next few years.
