The educational features on offer cover a wide range of areas from fitness and performance, health, animal rights, radical veganism and environmental issues, to activism, veganism for those in their advanced years, raw living foods, recipes for cooking, plus a comedy corner and a hangout zone for teens. The event also played host to the VegfestUK Awards Ceremony which celebrated the best of a vegan lifestyle in the UK.
