The Brighton VegFest, which I attended for the first time this year, is a happy annual event where animal products are checked at the door, and vegan food sellers, animal organisations, beauty product producers, and clothing stalls mingle happily with vegan-related workshops, speakers, and performers. The air is heady with free samples of strawberry coconut milk, vegan pastry and cake, nut cheese samples, and animal-free bath bombs.
Two years into my vegan wagon-ride, I'm starting to realise that actually associating with other vegans is an essential part of vegan well-beaning. Not being much of a joiner, this thought has mostly occurred to me and then drifted away aimlessly. But with this thought in mind, I decided to spend the afternoon among my own people.

Who knew that a rainy day in Brighton could turn into a trip to Vegan Disneyland?
For anyone interested, there is another Vegfest in Bristol in May (admission £2), and one in London in October (admission £10).
