We meet from 12.30pm, at Brixton Tube Station, there's a short walk to Brixton Station Road, plus lots of places to explore just a few minutes walk from the market *Brixton Village, Market Row, Coldharbour Lane/Atlantic Road, etc*, then we hang out at Ms Cupcake for an hour before heading to the pub or park (weather permitting), till late... :)

For Brunch with Fat Gay Vegan before you meet us, or whenever after 3pm, till late, Veg Bar is now 100% Vegan and is just moments away from Brockwell Park! :) :) Join us at any time.... here's a rough guide to when we'll be where![masked]pm; Gathering outside Brixton Tube Station
[masked]pm*; then, a short walk to Brixton Station Road, where we explore the market & surrounding area before .....

From about 2pm*; ....we wonder along to hang out at Ms Cupcake, via anywhere people fancy enroute!

*We may go via Brixton Village or along Atlantic Road, turning into Market Row's entrance there or turning the corner at the cross roads, into Coldharbour Lane.... :)*

2.30/3pm* till late ;

The Dog Star

A spacious cosy place, we regularly take over the back space by the Dog picture, or, lately, the Ballroom, upstairs! They serve several Vegan friendly Beers & cider; and they offer Vegan Options for their Pizza's, with V Bites Cheezly & Deli toppings, including Vegan chorizo, made by their Sicillian chef; they've gone down a treat in recent months! : )

{Other local pubs we've been to are minutes/seconds away from The Dog Star & Ms Cupcake; The Market House and The Prince Albert}


Brockwell Park *weather permitting!*

*In case of chilly or rainy weather, nearby pubs to Brockwell are Effra Social & Hootenanny, on Effra Road AND now.....100% vegan venue, Veg Bar, also on Effra Road, not far from Hootenanny; Brixton Water Lane to the right of Hootenanny leads directly to the park! :) *

At 3ish, if you fancy a trip to Brockwell Park, I'll head off with a little group for a few hours, & maybe meet whoever's still in the pub later on! I rather like the Walled Garden :)

*Approximate times

Brixton is a Vegan friendly Village.....from Ethiopian, to Jamaican, to American, to Asian, to Italian, etc, etc, take your pick from a great variety of savoury & sweet, healthy & indulgent Vegan Delights!
