Join more than 100 vegans and their friends on the first Saturday of each month for a compassionate party like no other.
London Vegan Drinks has grown since its inception in 2011 to become one of the most popular and loved vegan social events anywhere in the world. People drink. People eat. People meet without meat. People have a fabulous time.
When is the next London Vegan Drinks? Saturday November 1, 2014 from 6PM.
How does London Vegan Drinks work?
You show up. You buy drinks. You buy food if you are hungry. You socialise. It is so simple, yet so effective. There is no cover charge. The bar is stocked with a huge range of vegan beers, ciders, wines, cocktails and juices.
Your host Fat Gay Vegan will have name stickers for guests to wear (it helps with breaking the ice) and will introduce you to friendly vegans if you are feeling a little shy.
