• "The funny thing about vegans..." (all-vegan comedy night!)

    Karamel Vegan Restaurant

    • CARL DONNELLY • CHRIS STOKES • ADELE CLIFF • DAVE CHAWNER (MC) • "The funny thing about vegans" is an all-vegan comedy night, with an all-vegan line-up, in an always all-vegan venue. As far as we can tell, that's a first for London! Performances will come from the multi award-winning Carl Donnelly, the "laid back, disarming and very funny" (British Comedy Guide) Chris Stokes, and the "must-see" (Huffington Post) Adele Cliff - with the best-selling Dave Chawner as your MC for the evening. This is a ticketed event. Buy your ticket from http://bit.ly/LVM-FTAV for a tenner, and save a fiver on the door price. FOOD Karamel is expected to be offering two special thalis on the night (an Indian thali and an African thali). ACCESSIBILITY Karamel is a wheelchair-accessible venue, with a folding ramp to help customers over the doorsill to the main entrance. But we're likely to be using the second entrance just past the main entrance, which should be more accessible. The venue also has a wheelchair-accessible toilet (just inside this second entrance - behind the bar, and towards the front of the building.) MORE DETAILS https://www.facebook.com/events/455189008626920/ (includes video clips of the performers). TICKETS £10 in advance (no booking fee) from http://bit.ly/LVM-FTAV £15 on the door (if there are any left!) ANYTHING ELSE? End time is an estimate!

  • The New Brixton Vegan Walkabout!

  • Vegan Baking Group 22: Tropical

    Dogstar

    Like a pot luck, but with cake. This is the twenty second meeting of a vegan baking group, designed for members to show off their baking skills and share their creations. How it works: each meeting will have a theme. RSVP and bring along something you've baked to fit the theme. Share cake, discuss cake, have a drink. Simple. This month, we are thinking palm-fringed beaches and sunny weather. Think coconuts, mangos, papaya, pineapple... The rules: 1) Every attendee must bring something to share (cake, bread, pie, tart, etc.). It must be baked, and it should be large enough to share (e.g. a dozen cupcakes, a cake large enough to cut into 12 slices). No exceptions- it's a baking group, you kind of have to bake. 2) Everything must be vegan- no meat, fish, dairy, eggs, honey or any animal-derived products. If you're not sure about an ingredient, there are plenty of people who can help, so just ask. 3) Sharing is very much encouraged, so feel free to bring a box for leftovers. 4) Please bring an ingredient list for your bake. Accessibility: access is via a small step, and our usual spot up another step, although we can easily relocate. Toilets are downstairs.

  • See You Last Tuesday (C.U.L.T.)

    Tibits

    Join the CULT! Well, everyone seems to think veganism is a cult anyway! 😉 But joking aside, we have excellent news. From March 2015, every Tuesday is a vegan day (http://www.tibits.ch/en/food-drink/vegan.html) at Tibits (http://www.tibits.ch/en/restaurants.html#tibits-london-heddon-street)! And having been thinking that we needed a relaxed, midweek social event in central London, this seemed to be the perfect opportunity. We have booked the entire basement on the last Tuesday of every month. So come on down, meet other vegans, and enjoy vegan food and drink. (You're welcome to arrive any time between our start and end times.) If you haven't been before, Tibits is a great "pay-by-weight" buffet-style restaurant just off Regent Street. And on their vegan days, everything (or at least almost everything) in the buffet is vegan. So don't forget to save room for their sticky toffee pudding! HAPPY HOUR Arrive early to take advantage of Tibits' Happy Hour (Mon-Thurs 4-7 pm). • All cocktails £5 • Pints £3.50 • Bottles of house wine £12.50 • Bottles of Prosecco £18 ACCESSIBILITY Tibits is a wheelchair-accessible venue with a lift to the basement (where we'll be) and a wheelchair-accessible toilet. However, the lift is a little hidden, so please ask staff. (A member of staff will usually greet customers as they enter.) FREE MEMBERSHIP. FREE ATTENDANCE. We're keen to ensure that cost is never a barrier to attendance - either for vegans on a low-income, or for non-vegans who don't want to pay to learn more about veganism. Therefore, we never charge for membership or attendance. But that doesn't mean that our group or our events don't cost us anything to run! So if you'd like to (and are able to) support our events and future projects, you can find out how to do so here: https://londonveganmeetup.co.uk/donations

  • London Vegan Drinks

    Karamel Restaurant, Chocolate Factory 2

    Since September 2014, London has had a new, all vegan bar / restaurant / venue - Kabaret at Karamel. Run by vegans, and with an all vegan menu and drinks list, this is now the home of London Vegan Drinks. And although it's a little out of central London, it's less than 30 minutes from Oxford Circus by public transport. What's more, they have a late license until the early hours at weekends. So feel free to arrive any time between our start and end times. And being a Saturday, you (hopefully!) won't have to worry about work in the morning. If you've been to London Vegan Drinks before, you'll already know that this event, founded by blogger FatGayVegan in 2011, has become London's biggest monthly vegan social event (having already outgrown three previous venues). And if you haven't been before, it's about time you did! Invite your friends who aren't on Meetup here: https://www.facebook.com/londonvegandrinks/events/ ACCESSIBILITY Karamel is a wheelchair-accessible venue, with a folding ramp to help customers over the doorsill. (There's a second entrance just past the main entrance that may be more accessible, but which isn't always open.)
