Headline speakers for Vevolution, which focuses on sharing inspiring stories and ideas from leaders of the plant-powered movement, include Sunday Times best selling authors BOSH! And King CookDaily  - both of whom have been pivotal in reshaping the UK’s perceptions of vegans.

Culture

Fitness and fashion are a big part of this year's event with Naturally Stefanie and Rachel Ama appearing at the the festival alongside Meg and Komie Vora, founders of leading LA vegan fashion brand Delikate Rayne.

And in a new twist for 2018, - Eat Drink Vegan - America’s premier plant-based food and drink festival, will host the second stage at Vevolution, bringing with them one of LA’s leading chefs and restaurants to combine with the best of the UK vegan food scene.

Vevolution events have become culturally significant as well as hugely popular since the launch in 2016, repeatedly selling-out, as well as appearing across mainstream media outlets including The Guardian, Forbes, and Metro UK. Founders Damien Clarkson and Judy Nadel moved the event to the BFI this year in a bid to meet demand, after selling-out five weeks ahead of Vevolution 2017.
