Vegan Life Live - London - 10th February

Following a truly amazing first year in 2017, Vegan Life Live will return to Alexandra Palace for its second year in February 2018.

Veganism is about more than just the food we eat. It’s a whole lifestyle, encompassing everything from the clothes we wear and the skincare we use, to our cleaning products and the way we think about the world.

The start of a new year will see many people deciding to make a positive change in their lives and take their first steps on their vegan journey. While it can seem that being a vegan is all about what you can’t have, a weekend at Vegan Life Live is a celebration of the world that opens up to you as a brand new vegan.

A showcase of over 200 exhibitors are on hand to provide everything from chocolate, cheese and cake to shoes, supplements and spices, while a full schedule of lectures and talks will allow visitors to hear from experts about the ethical, environmental and compassionate effects of living a vegan life.

Cooking demonstrations from leading vegan chefs and bloggers will inspire everyone, whether they have been a vegan for years, or have made a new year’s resolution. There’s something for everyone at Vegan Life Live!

Viva Vegan Festivals - Cardiff - 24th February

Viva! was the first UK charity to ever run a Vegan Roadshow, showing people how easy and positive it to change. We first held the Vegan Festivals across the UK in October 2004 (previously called Incredible Veggie Roadshows), and they were so successful we have been organising them ever since! Almost 100,000 people have attended the events, and they have had a phenomenal impact on people going vegan or eating considerably less meat, fish, eggs and dairy, which means millions of animals have been saved.

Viva!’s Vegan Festivals are fun, upbeat and entertaining and are aimed not just at veggies and vegans but also meat eaters and meat reducers. Our aim is to swell the number of people giving up animal products as it’s the surest way of saving animals from suffering. In fact, The Viva! Vegan Festivals provide all the information anyone could ever want about going, being and staying vegan – or moving in that direction. We hope to see you at our next Show!
