Meet Artist and Philanthropist Evgeni Minchev

Evgeni Minchev is a Bulgarian celebrity who successfully masters British fashion and secular life. Starting as a Whatman in his homeland, just to get the right to live in the capital Sofia, he easily rose to be an award-winning poet, singer, organizer of charity events such as Businesswoman of the Year and the British Bulgarian Business Ball in London. As part of the things that confirm his influence and prestige, Evgeni was accepted as a member of some of the most important London private clubs, including The Lansdowne club, Mosimann's, ROSL, The Art's club. Minchev dedicates part of his charity events to raise funds for the British Royal Legion and in 2017 he received a congratulatory address on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen. Honorary patron of the British Bulgarian Business Ball in the private club The Lansdowne in 2018 was the former Commander-in-Chief of the British Navy, Admiral Lord West. Evgeni Minchev is often seen in the company of the writer Lady Colin Campbell, and is a frequent guest at the Goring Castle, which she owns. There the eccentric Bulgarian and philanthropist shot the video for his most popular song Galabo. In the close circle of friends of the Bulgarian are also the Russian princesses Olga Romanova and Marina Lobanov-Rostovski, the princess of Yugoslavia Her Royal Highness Katarina, Prince Rostislav Romanov and others.

Meet Artist and Philanthropist Evgeni Minchev

1. Evgeni, you worked for six years as a Whatman to get a residence in Sofia. Was that humiliating for you? "Not at all." I complied with the times that were under the yoke of socialism and communism at that time. I am among the people who paid perhaps the highest price for their right to live in the capital of Bulgaria. I did my best to consolidate the time with the tram with useful activities. I was the first to create advertising trams in Bulgaria. All the accredited newspapers wrote articles then and encouraged me to do many more interesting things. At that time, I won a poetry competition sponsored by the Ministry of Transport and the Minister of Transport personally presented me with the grand prize. Those were glorious times.


2. You are adopted, how did this affect your life, did it leave an imprint in your life in the future? - I cannot say that it was easy for me. I accept the things in life as they are, and I try to create better conditions for myself to go through everything. But always in my charity I pay attention to children in need.


3. You do charity for the British Royal Legion. What inspired you to donate to war veterans? - I studied in a military school and for me the respect for the heroes of the war, for the military and the most deserving in the army inspires me. I was very happy when Admiral Lord West accepted to be the honorary patron of the British Bulgarian Business Ball in London, organized by me.


4. Have you visited the British Parliament and which Members do you know? "Among the first lords I know is Lord Anthony St. John of Bletzo, with whom we have sat many times in Parliament's restaurant and discussed international topics." I attended a reception with many select people in The River room with Lord Astor in Heaver, with whom I often see at Poppy ball. I have had the honor of seeing Lord Northbrook, Baroness Beatrice Cox, and Baroness Susan Greenfield, with whom we attended the Miss World pageant, several times.
