Over the years the vegan lifestyle has risen in popularity, especially during aftermath of the 2013 Horsemeat Scandal. From protecting animals to adopting guilt free eating habits, there are many reasons that people decide to go vegan.
Here at Buddha Beauty the idea of veganism is something that we hold near to our hearts, and have done so since our company conception. This means that none of our products are retained from animal sources, nor are they tested on animals either. With this said, we are ecstatic to announce that the Buddha Beauty team will be appearing at the fifth annual VegFest 2017 in London! Here is everything you need to know about the much-anticipated festival…
What is VegFest?
With origins in Bristol, the annual Vegan Festival has been around for 15 years and in 2009 the event moved to Brighton for the first time. With this said it was the Horsemeat Scandal of 2013 that brought the world of veganism to London in the form of Vegfest! The festival boasts a range of exhibitors offering vegan friendly products and services as well as children’s fun and games and live entertainment. Plus, the London event hosts an awards ceremony!
What are the highlights?
Over the October weekend of Saturday 21st until Sunday 22nd, VegFest presents many exciting exhibitions including a professional health summit, vegan athletics summit, the vegan film festival and the living raw zone.
The tickets for VegFest went on sale at the start of August however the Buddha Beauty team would love to meet some of our online clientele! Priced at £12 for adults, £8 for concessions and kids under 16 gaining free entry, it’s no surprise that there is expected to be around 14,000 visitors! We hope you will be one of them!
Here at Buddha Beauty we believe that you cannot gain company credibility without staying true to your beliefs which is why it always baffles us when makeup and beauty businesses change their animal friendly beliefs in favour of profit.
As the best beauty salon in Manchester, we would never make such a change to our products! To find out more about our appearance at VegFest or to book in a treatment, contact a member of the team today!
