Global Vegfest 3 LIVE this weekend!

16th March 2022

Global Vegfest is back for another edition, this time a one-day celebration of all things vegan on the 19th March 2022.


We’re happy to be able to continue collating all the performances, talks, panels, discussions, debates and demonstrations in this programme to make it as easy as possible for others to enjoy this excellent content from our distinguished colleagues.


For both the inaugural Global Vegfest 1 and the 2nd edition – aptly titled Global Vegfest 2, we saw contributions from many wonderful and dynamic speakers on a range of topics. Speakers such as Jackie Norman, Mitali Deypurkaystha, Leila Dehghan, Elly Nakajima, Ailya Khan, Simohamed Bouhakkaoui, Angel Lau, David Pannell, Dr Shireen Kassam, Sunni Patel, Rohini Bajekal, Annie Leymarie, Annette Henry, Esen Boyacigiller, Chantal Tomlinson, Mishkat Shehata, Rita Castanhito, Rachel Kabue, Kyobe Ashiraf, Bel Jacobs, and many more besides.


Now, since Global Vegfest 2, VegfestUK have been fortunate enough to announce our return to live events in the Autumn, with the long-awaited VegfestUK London returning to Olympia London on 12th & 13th November. With the experience we’ve gained since the first national lockdown in the UK in March 2020, we can’t wait to carry that influence over in person in November this year.


Before then however, we have time for more Global Vegfest online events, with another fantastic line up of guests, speakers and contributors crammed into a BIG day on Saturday 19th March.
