I’m very excited about this post, as it’s my first competition on Monsoon of Random! And it’s a great one for all of you foodies out there!
As you may know by now, I love boxes of random foods and goodies, events filled with sweet and savoury delights, competitions, shopping and discovering new foods. Where better to get all of this under one roof than VegFestUK London. They will be filling Olympia with a whole range of vegan food and drinks on 27th and 28th September 2014. And there won’t just be food… oh no, there be shopping, talks, cookery demos, comedy and loads more!
I’ll be giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets (usually £10 each, of buy one get one free until August 23rd) to this fantastic event later in the post, but for now, I want to talk to you a bit more about some of the brands and celebrities involved.
One of the most exciting parts about VegFestUK is the chance to have your say, and vote for your favourite brands in the VegFestUK Awards. There are so many amazing brands nominated, and I found it really hard to choose, but the likes of Ombar, Vego and The Raw Chocolate Company are sure to be getting some votes from me! Yes, I know they are all chocolate brands, but what can I say, they’re yummy and I love chocolate! Oh, and we do have them all in our fridge at the moment!
Now, it’s not just brands who are being nominated for awards here – there are vegan bloggers, hotels, restaurants, celebrities and more. Melissa Morgan (known to vegan cake lovers as Ms Cupcake) will be there on the day, and is up for an award. Also there to entertain and delight us on the day will be comedian Andrew O’Neill, Better Raw founder Tanya Alekseeva and Vegan Athlete of the Year 2013, Patrik Baboumian.
So, now that I’ve given you a taster of what to expect, why not grab yourself some tickets over at the website. Alternatively, if you fancy your chances at winning a pair of tickets, why not enter my simple competition.
All you have to do is go to the Monsoon of Random Facebook page, give it a like (if you haven’t already) and comment under the VegFestUK post, telling me what your favourite vegan brand/celebrity/restaurant is. I will then use a random generator to pick one winner at random. The competition will close at 11am on Friday 29th August 2014 and I will announce the winner no later than Monday 1st September!
UPDATE! You can now also enter via Twitter! Just follow me and RT my competition post, and tweet me your favourite vegan brand! @Lynsey_Clayton
Good luck everyone! I can’t wait to hear about your favourite brands. Have a wonderful weekend!
