VEGANUARY+ Weekend #2

Join us this January in Celebrating Veganism + So Much More at our Conscious Living Event! After the whirlwind of Christmas, January is time to detox, realign and look forward with resolve to the year ahead. Here at The Boiler House we celebrate veganism 365 days a year! But January is a particularly important month for us as it gives us the opportunity to reach new audiences outside of our echo chamber and show them just how frikkin’ awesome London’s plant-based community is!

11:00am - 6:00pm GMT

The Boiler House 152 Brick Ln, London E1 6RU

Life Lessons Festival

Wellbeing / noun welˈbiː.ɪŋ/ Wellbeing isn't about lycra and fad diets. Its aim is not weight-loss for image-sake. Wellbeing is a way of life. It's smart-thinking, sustainable living, community-building and frank-speaking. When well-informed, with an open-mind and with life lessons at our finger-tips, we can all live a happy, healthy and more inspired life. Welcome to Life Lessons. A weekend of big talks from big thinkers. Find Stellen in the shopping village

Whether you want to learn a new skill in one of our workshops or have a great day out shopping from over 200 designer makers the Festival is a fantastic event for all.
