A host of leading vegan celebrities, thought-leaders, influencers and athletes will take to the stage at London’s Vevolution festival on November 25.
The event, which will take place at The Ri in the heart of London’s West End, comprises TED style short talks, panel discussions, and creative workshops – it also showcases the best of the city’s foodie scene.
In the past year, Vevolution held seven sold-out events that have come to represent a new vanguard of vegan creatives in the UK.
This year, Vevolution – which has been called ‘the vegan TED talks’ – has partnered with international food awareness organisation ProVeg, the charity aiming to reduce global meat consumption by 50 per cent by 2040.
ProVeg will host its own stage at the festival alongside the Vevolution main stage.
Confirmed speakers include Made In Chelsea stars Lucy and Tiffany Watson, as well as Nathan Runkle, Founder and President of US farmed animal advocacy organisation Mercy For Animals.
The Vevolution line-up will also have some muscle with UK Ninja Warrior star Chase Armitage, Adam Stansbury (The Plant Powered PT), and John Lewis (Bad Ass Vegan) all taking part.
Leading vegan entrepreneurs like Meriel Armitage (Club Mexicana), JP and Alex Petrides (allplants), and Ian Theasby and Henry David Firth (BOSH!) will also take to the stage.
They will be joined by activists like Tobias Leenaert (The Vegan Strategist) and Matthew Glover (Co-Founder of Veganuary) and renowned writer and political activist Tamsin Omond.
And of course it wouldn’t be a vegan festival without delicious food. Club Mexicana will be there serving up Mexican meals, alongside One Planet Pizza, Pomodoro E Basilico, and Young Vegans.
Speaking about this year’s festival, Vevolution Co-Founder Damien Clarkson said: “Last week I heard that 28 per cent of people in the UK have reduced their meat consumption in the past six months.
“What we are witnessing is mass scale shift towards a meat-free culture. And we are really proud to be playing a role in helping people learn about living a vegan lifestyle.”
His Co-Founder, Judy Nadel, adds: “Gone are the days when veganism was associated with bland food. We are part of creating a movement of people making vegan choices for health, environment and the animals. And it doesn’t hurt that the food tastes amazing.”
