Leeds Vegan Fest 2015
We took a trip to Leeds for the first time. Since we are always looking to go to vegan festivals to try new food we jumped at the opportunity to see Leeds and check out the Greater Yorkshire Vegan Festival. To make things better, some people we met off a child free vegans Facebook group offered to let us stay at their place in Lincoln.
We woke up earlier this time so we didn't have a replay of almost missing the Mega Bus like on the Bristol trip. We got on the Mega Bus at 8:40 or so and were off by 8:55. The bus went from Birmingham to Manchester to Leeds.
The Mega Bus took us to the main bus station where all the buses go to. We got out and figured out where we were and where to go.
Aside from the garbage bin situation everything was going well.
This is the booth our Facebook friends were running for "Population Matters". It talks about voluntarily reducing the human population because of the environmental impact of the ever increasing human population (7 Billion and counting!) While they gave a talk on the subject we watched their booth for them. Basically we handed out free vegan condoms and answered the common question "what isn't vegan about normal condoms?" Normal condoms sometimes have casein in them which is a milk product. A lot of people were in agreement that the human population needs to be sustainable, others were blushing at the sight of condoms and there was one person that was against birth control that was not impressed by the condoms. We only found out about her afterwards because she posted all over Facebook.
The Leeds Town Hall was really cool looking. Nice ceiling!
From Leeds we caught a ride to Lincoln with our new friends and stayed at their place. When we left Lincoln we took the train to Birmingham which we booked on Trainline. We had an hour stop in Nottingham, where we did a little exploring to see if we wanted to return.
