From the land that brought us The Beatles, the tartan plaid and The Royal Wedding, comes a great weekend experience as British Ambassador to the Philippines, Asif Anwar Ahmad, invites us to the Great British Festival.
“Our GREAT campaign celebrates the growing links between the UK and the Philippines, allowing us to interact and work with more Filipinos. Come join us again at the Great British Festival, there’s something for everyone. Shoppers, fashionistas, foodies, music lovers, film buffs, pop culture fans, car enthusiasts, business executives, students and travellers of all ages will all find suitable activities to enjoy. This is your opportunity to get involved and win great prizes while having fun!” His Excellency shares.
Whether it’s the FREE admissions or the chances of winning great prizes (hello, One Direction concert tickets and round trip tickets to the UK), one should definitely check out the Great British Festival. The three-day event—that runs from February 27 2015 to March 1, 2015 at Bonifacio High Street—kicks off with the Great British Rockeoke; where contestants that auditioned through Facebook submissions will have the chance to belt it out live and win two round trip tickets to the UK via Etihad Airways.
Experience British fashion, food and music through a fashion show featuring our favourite Brit labels, a cooking demonstration and musical performances from the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra and other artists. Tour the popular UK destinations through the miniature replica of the Stonehenge, Balmoral, Tower Bridge and House of Parliament—plus we heard that the Iron thrown from Game of Thrones and the Tardis from Dr. Who are making a cameo! A glimpse into the Cities of the Future will also be featured by innovative British Brands. Take the experience home with you by shopping at Retail Avenue or feast on good food and even watch a flick at their Open Air Cinema. And if the festival experience is not enough, Visa inquiries are just a hop, skip and jump away with their UK Visa Information Booth—whether it’s for education or plain leisure, they’ll be helpful!
