Check your tofu stocks and get ready for some meat-free magic, Europe's biggest vegetarian event has announced plans for a 2015 event at Olympia Central. Last year saw stalls peddling animal-friendly cosmetics, raw cocoa, vegan cakes and other virtuous goods alongside a strong line-up of comedy on the Performance Stage, with sets from Alasdair Beckett-King, Harriet Kemsley and Andrew O'Neill among others. Expect similar attractions this year where visitors can also pick up new tips and dietary delights at a selection of workshops, talks and cookery demonstrations. Planned new features include a vegan activist and health summit as well as a campaign zone with interactive workshops aiming to educate people about the vegan lifestyle. Absolutely no animals are harmed in the making of this two-day festival aimed at those with the greenest of diets. If you can’t wait till the autumn, head to the vegan capital of the UK, Brighton, on Saturday March 28 and Sunday March 29 for an early Vegfest fix.
