Viva! Magical Vegan Festival is coming to Birmingham, England, United Kingdom, and Evanna Lynch, one of our favorite Harry Potter stars, will be speaking. The festival will take place on May 18 and will run from 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Viva! will host several other speakers, including Dirty Vegan author Matt Pritchard, VBites founder Heather Mills, and Robbie Lockie, cofounder of Plant Based News.

Viva! founder and director Juliet Gellatley spoke with Plant Based News about the festival celebrating its 25th anniversary as well as the rise of veganism.

Our festivals are a fantastic way of bringing people together and showcasing the benefits of vegan lifestyle, and what better occassion than our 25th [a]nniversary.

Attendees will be able to experience cooking demonstrations, several speakers, and many stalls selling vegan gifts, clothing, food, and more. General admission at the door is £3 and VIP tickets are £13. There are also tickets available for an audience with Evanna Lynch.

Proceeds from the festival go toward Viva! and its research and investigation into health and environmental issues.
