We’re on a mission to bring people together not only in the name of ice cream, but also in the name of our latest campaign, One Sweet World. So, on Thursday 20th October, we’re throwing a party! Join us for One Sweet Social at Wunderlust in Lewisham, London for a fun-filled night of eats, beats and treats, where not only can you groove to the tunes of acoustic artists and DJ’s alike (check out the line-up below!), but also fill your boots with as much Fairtrade ice cream as you can shake your spoon at, in the form of one-off, never before seen cool concoctions!
What’s more, we’ll be teaming up with civil rights, anti-racism charity HOPE not hate and its Lewisham More In Common group, to help us celebrate everything that unites us. Between scoops and tunes, there’ll be the chance to speak to a host of community groups, all who work hard to create inclusion and celebrate diversity in Lewisham. You’ll also be able to hop on Wunderlust’s iconic red bus to find out more about how to get involved with their local groups in your area!
And with tickets costing just £3 with proceeds going to support HOPE not hate’s charitable work, what are you waiting for!? Get your hooves on, grab a ticket below, and we’ll see you there!
Peace, love & ice cream,
Ben & Jerry’s
