London's King's Cross area will host a vegan street food festival next month.

Livin' on the Veg - which describes itself as 'the ultimate vegan rumble' - will bring together eight traders over August 18-19. 

There will also be three vegan bars serving wine, beer and cocktails, as well as DJs spinning tunes throughout.

Visitors buy a ticket (£25), which entitles them to a dish from each stall and a cocktail. They then vote for their favourite trader.
