It’s always nice to celebrate successful vegan ventures, and VegFest UK’s recent Awards Ceremony has done just that.

The awards celebrated the best of a vegan lifestyle in the UK, covering a whopping 17 ‘vegan’ categories including best cheese, desserts, footwear, and vloggers.

The ceremony saw speeches from an array of vegan celebs, including Harry Potter actress Evanna Lynch, Made in Chelsea star Lucy Watson, and actor Alan Ford.

And, of course, the ceremony named the best vegan products in the UK over the last year.

Here’s a handy guide to show you which products you need to check out, which restaurants you need to dine at, and which vloggers you need to be watching.
