Talent & Speakers
Stylist Live plays host to a huge line-up of experts, influencers and household names.
Please check back for 2018 listings or explore just a few of the people we welcomed to our Festival of Inspiration in 2017 below.
Outspoken, opinionated and refreshingly honest; we’re excited to welcome Russell Brand to our incredible line-up this year. The award-winning comedian, actor, writer and broadcaster will be joining us for a candid and insightful session discussing his book, ‘Recovery: Freedom From Our Addictions’, on our THRIVE stage.
Radio, TV, philanthropy, motherhood; Emma is one of our favourite Renaissance women. As the queen of live TV (Big Brother, The Voice – and new launch The Voice Kids), and spokesperson for UNICEF UK, Emma brings with her a wealth of experience and a passion for people and understanding. Welcome on board Emma!
A regular on our television screens for over 20 years, Fearne is one of the UK’s most popular presenters, DJ’s, and authors. She’s also a hugely talented artist and an enthusiastic cook and advocate for healthy living, having recently released three books along the theme (‘Cook Happy, Cook Health’, ‘Happy’, and most recently ‘Cook. Eat. Love’). She joins her old hosting buddy Reggie Yates to talk past, present and (hopes for the) future.
Broadcaster, actor, writer and director, there isn’t much Reggie hasn’t done. From a successful career in radio to multiple BBC documentaries — not to mention hosting the sadly departed Top of the Pops — he’ll be with us at this year’s Stylist Live, alongside former presenting partner Fearne Cotton. The ultimate nostalgia fix.
No-one can crank up the heat in the kitchen quite like best-selling food writer and TV cook, Nigella Lawson. Since the 1998 release of her first book ‘How to Eat’, Nigella’s tempting and hassle-free attitude to food has earned her the reputation as one of the most popular names on the British food scene. We want to know what drives and inspires Britain’s queen of food and entertaining. We couldn’t be more excited to have her at Stylist Live this year to dish out some advice and to talk about her latest cookbook, ‘At My Table’, with Stylist editor Lisa Smorsarski.
Effortlessly hilarious, unashamedly outspoken and never outwitted, we’re thrilled to welcome Katherine Ryan back to this year’s festival. The Canadian comedian, writer and television presenter has gone from sell out stand-up tours to hosting must see shows, such as this year’s How’d You Get So Rich and the provocative Your Face or Mine. We can’t wait for Katherine to re-join our awesome line up with her unique nothing-is-off-limits brand of comedy and feminism!
Make sure to catch Katherine on the Sunday!
A Stylist Live favourite, the brilliantly outspoken Clara Amfo is joining us once again to talk intersectional feminism, race, music and more at this year’s festival. An award winning broadcaster and a woman at the forefront of the UK’s music industry – as Radio One’s Live Lounge host – we’re thrilled to welcome Clara back to our festival of inspiration
My Dad Wrote A Porno
Alice Levine, James Cooper and Jamie Morton are joining Stylist Live to talk porno, off-air friendships and what it’s really like to read your father’s erotica to millions of listeners worldwide. Bringing with them all the gory details on what’s made Belinda Blinked such a ‘romping’ success – Belinkers will definitely want a front row seat to their session, taking place on the Friday.
Comedian, actor, writer and of course, one half of hilarious duo Mitchell & Webb, Robert Webb — self-proclaimed feminist — joins us at this year’s festival to explore the themes of his new book, ‘How Not to Be a Boy‘. Questioning society’s prevailing attitude towards masculinity, whilst taking a look back over his own life and the lessons on gender he’s no longer sure were helpful. He joins is on the Saturday and we can’t wait to hear what he has to say.
