The organizers of an extremely popular vegan event have been forced to cancel as fears around the spread of coronavirus intensify.

Vegan Life Live – the companion event to the UK’s first vegan magazine, Vegan Life – was due to take place this weekend at Alexandra Palace, with thousands of attendees expected.


It follows the cancellation of the British Academy’s ‘Vegan .vs. Vegan’ debate, featuring activist Ed Winters and academic Dr. Josh Milburn.

Various major sporting events have been canceled, and some companies including Google are reporting asking staff to work remotely where possible, in a bid to halt the spread of the virus.

‘Too many uncertainties’

“As the organizer of Vegan Life Live, we have made the difficult decision not to go ahead with this year’s event,” the organizers said in an Instagram post.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but we feel that the current climate has provided too many uncertainties for us to be able to run the event.

“We will make more information available via our website, including what this means for ticket holders, in due course.”
