Ruth Semple, Alex Douglas and Ben Hewitt were at Brecknock Road Vegan Festival in London on Saturday 9th of November 2013, interviewing trademark holders, members of the public, members, and volunteers for a new film about the international Vegan Trademark. The event was a real first for London, as a vegan festival held outdoors for the first time, and was a great way to encourage local businesses to take notice of vegans.
Of course, being an outdoor event in the UK, it rained a lot. But it was going to take more than cold, wet, and wintry conditions to deter London vegans and their friends from their mission - showing how easy shopping for vegan products can be.
Despite the heavy rain, the team of Vegan Society volunteers were excellent. They welcomed everyone to The Vegan Society’s stall with a smile on their face, and were happy to offer advice.
