On Oct 5, The Vegan Option is opening the main stage at the first ever VegFestUK London!
The next episode, about finding witty and friendly answers to the questions vegans keep getting asked, is going to be recorded in front of a live audience at the biggest vegan festival in Europe. If you are in the vicinity then please come!
In May, vegans at VegFestUK Bristol told me about the weird and wonderful questions that non-vegans asked them. (If you’re vegan, please add your favourites in the comments below!)
I’m going to put those questions to a panel of comics and commentators:
- Chris Stokes (@_Chris_Stokes) (a perpetually bemused vegan standup comedian)
- Michael Legge (@MichaelLegge) (award-winning cheeky vegan standup comedian, presenter, and writer)
- John Robb (@JohnRobb77) (punk musician, presenter, and commentator)
- Dr Diana Fleischman (@Sentientist) (psychology lecturer and former co-host)
This is at noon on Saturday Oct 5, at the main performance stage. There will be some audience participation, so you might end up in the show!
There is an awful lot else going on at VegFestUK – including Citizen Radio’s Jamie Kilstein, Kerry McCarthy MP, and John Robb’s band Goldblade – so it’s well worth coming. You can buy cheap advance tickets for the festival online.
I’m also going to host a discussion about vegan independent media – including bloggers, podcasters and YouTube stars – at 6pm the same day in the workshop space. If you make content, it’ll be a great chance to network and share info. If you consume content, it’ll be a peek behind the scenes. And if you’re interested in getting started, it’ll be a great place to learn.
