This year The Big Issue Foundation turns 20, and to celebrate leaving our teenage years we are holding a BIG birthday bash in London, and we’d love you to join the party! Buy your tickets now to be sure you will be part of the fun in Vauxhall on Thursday 22nd October!
Doors will be open from 6.30pm and guests will be welcomed with a drink on arrival. As always with our parties the theme will be to wear something red, and it could be anything! Be bold in a red dress or suit, or be subtle with some red socks or even underwear, the choice is yours!
As you would expect for any 20th birthday party it’s going to be a lively affair! We’re delighted to announce that we have a live set of upbeat soul classics to be performed by Melanie Masson! Melanie sold the Big Issue with us back in February 2014 and so understands the value of our work. Melanie has an incredible voice and fantastic energy and is sure to get the party started! We’re also thrilled that there will be dance routine performed by Inifinity8, London’s newest and freshest street dance troupe!
We are excited that we will also be joined on the night by James Bowen, owner of the famous Street Cat Bob! Finally there will be a fantastic raffle and auction with lots of prizes including an X-Box One, signed Arsenal shirt and luxury hotel stay in London Bridge!
The party is in Fire, a multi-roomed destination club with amazing lighting and an incredible sound system! We’re grateful to the team at Fire for giving us access to their fantastic venue and for making the arrangements for this special celebration.
If you haven’t been to one of our parties before you should know that this is one you shouldn’t miss! Take a look at the photos from The Big Red Party 2014 and watch the video below of the night, the evening is a night of celebration along with the brilliant feeling of knowing that your night out is supporting people who deserve a hand up.
Should you not be able to join us for this event but would like to show your support for our celebrations, we’d be delighted if you would consider making a birthday gift to us of £20, the equivalent of the cost of a ticket. If you would like to give us a birthday gift please click here. Alternatively, you might like to host an event to celebrate our birthday where you are.
Based just around the corner from our office in Vauxhall, and a stone’s throw from the river, Fire is our neighbour in the heart of London. Just 20 meters from Vauxhall underground, rail and 24hr bus station, we hope it will be a convenient location for you to get to, and home from. You can find more information on the venue on Fire’s website.
Buy your tickets to join us to celebrate the amazing work of The Big Issue Foundation over the last 20 years, and into the next 20!
