On the first day of Veganmas, my true love gave to me, a huge vegan festival.
TBF, do you really need the other eleven days if they’ve already got you that? Brick Lane are playing host to a month-long celebration of all things vegan next month, as V For kicks off on August 2nd. (For obvious reasons, they couldn’t call it V Festival). Included in this month-long extravaganza is vegan food, vegan lifestyles, and even a vegan fashion show. All hail the power of the plants!
Every festival needs a big opening night act, and V For is bringing out their big gun: Vegan Nights. Only now, it’s bigger and, erm, vegan-er. It’s a super-sized portion of the regular night market, featuring everything from vegan fried chicken and steaks to ice cream and waffle mountains. Meanwhile, local restaurants DF/Mexico, Juju’s, and Ninety One are launching vegan menus as part of V For, so you’ll be waddling out of this festival.
From August 7th, Plant Pop are launching an ‘immersive vegan exhibition’. Do they… immerse you in vegans? We honestly don’t know, but the promise of this “all-encompassing sensory experience” will be perfect for those wishing to take their ethical lifestyle to the next level. There will also be ethical fashion from the likes of ETHCS, Po-Zu, and Beyond Skin, whilst Bare Fashion go a step further and throw London’s first vegan fashion show on August 16th. Finally, there are fitness and wellness events running throughout the festival, with Fat Buddha Yoga and adidas Studio LDN putting you through your paces. We’re all V For it!
