London Vegfest is one of the biggest vegan events in Europe.  People from all over the world descend on the UK's capital to discover everything new in the vegan world.  2016 was no exception with everything from new 'cheesier' fake cheeses, to the best clothing to wear to the gym. This year was especially interesting to those into fitness as we had a health and fitness seminar with speakers from us (Vegan Bodybuilding), our good friends over at Vegan Runners, Vegan Fitness and many others.

Saturday

Saturday was a really busy day for us, with the venue filled with sports and fitness types we were especially busy. As well as meeting everyone, we also had our contest to do in the afternoon. 

Carlos & Robert

This was probably the best day to come if you were into fitness as there were many faces you would recognise.

Sunday was a more relaxed day, with a chance to look around and take a break for the constant workload of the Saturday. Hope had fun all throughout the weekend, even being caged couldn't stop her :-).
finally the day came to an end

Wrap-up

So the day ended with us helping to carry a few stall holders things down for them and then headed home. I think overall we had a very productive weekend and helped a lot of people move towards a healthy vegan lifestyle.  As usual I will end this with our sponsors mixed in with pictures of people getting prizes.
