Vevolution Festival brought the magic to the City of London for the third year in a row, and everything was bigger and better than ever. We welcomed around 800 people in total, who travelled far and wide to join us and make this day super special.
This year the festival was held at the legendary BFI on the Southbank, which made for such an incredible and HUGE venue. There were 2 main stages, a food area, brand zone, and workshop room. The Vevolution Stage and Eat Drink Vegan Stage played host to a variety of inspiring talks and panels from pioneers of the plant-powered movement.
We want to say another massive thank you to all attendees, and everyone who was involved in this day! Your support means the world to us, and keeps us motivated to put on more inspiring events for you all.
Vevolution Festival 2018 Highlights
Seeing people come from far and wide for one day is truly an inspiring thing. We will never tire of meeting you guys, seeing your smiling faces, and hearing that you support what we do. So many people come to Vevolution Festival and meet their tribe!
THE ICONIC SETTING
Vevolution Festival took over the iconic British Film Institute, and it was amazing. It’s such a big space, and in an ideal, central location.
LA CAME TO LONDON
LOADED GOODIE BAGS
It was an absolute pleasure to welcome Janette Fernandez from Eat Drink Vegan to Vevolution Festival 2018. She brought a taste of LA with her in the form of the amazing Vegan Earth Cafe. Their tacos were such a hit!
We always work hard to source great brands and great quality treats for the goodie bags - it was worth £30! We were super pleased to see that you guys loved what you received.
INTIMATE ON-STAGE CONVERSATIONS
The main stages were host to intimate conversations with the likes of Stefanie Moir and King CookDaily. It was so great to learn more about some of the plant-powered pioneers of our generation.
We had a great mixture of workshops, ranging from fashion, to making your own kombucha. They were held in a beautiful room, away from the buzz of the festival where everyone could sit back, listen and get involved.
BRILLIANT PLANT-POWERED BRANDS
BY CHLOE JOINED US
All of our sponsors have such amazing missions, and we were so proud to showcase their products and businesses in the brand zone. It was a popular spot throughout the day, with lots of attendees trying out tasty samples, buying merch, checking out leaflets, and more.
Plant-based eatery By Chloe. was serving up some of their new CBD-infused treats in the brand zone. The Tower Bridge branch was also host to the Vevolution Festival after-party!
BENUGO WENT VEGAN
The caterer at the BFI went vegan for the whole day just for Vevolution Festival! Everyone received a free nutritious breakfast of fruit, muffins, biscuits, or smoothies, and free coffee too. Their lunch included wraps, salads, or sandwiches - all of which were delicious.
BRIGHT x VEVOLUTION ZINE
Just like last year, we collaborated with BRIGHT zine to create a programme for everyone that would make the perfect keepsake. We included interviews and articles from the speakers and panelists so you can get to know them a little better.
We Felt The Love From You Guys!
So, What’s Next For Vevolution?
We’re currently recuperating from the weekend, but will soon be planning our 2019 events. Look out for the podcast and videos from the festival in the coming months. We have some massive plans for 2019 we can’t wait to share with you.
