Experience Britain in Manila, win flights to the UK at the Great British Festival
Experience the biggest foreign street festival in the Philippines at the #GreatBritishFestival on 24 to 26 February. Enjoy the best of British culture with your friends and family and come down Bonifacio High Street for a great weekend of live music, fashion, food and arts.
British Ambassador Asif Ahmad is inviting everyone to join the three-day celebration. “Filipinos already know our famous landmarks. We want to share more of our secret to success – culture, people, and continuing openness to the world. Most Filipinos already know about the culinary delights of places like Borough Market and the fashion from our great designers and retailers. We also want our Filipino friends to experience the look and feel of different markets all over the country. Every city in the UK has weekday and Sunday markets. Villages have local produce on show. Street performers and people watching are also vibrant elements of our markets.”
This year’s Great British Festival will focus on the importance of street markets in British life. There will be food, fashion, cars and other great displays of British excellence that will occupy the entire length of Bonifacio High Street in BGC. British creativity meets Filipino talent at the Main Stage, with electrifying performances from Filipina group and X Factor UK finalists 4th Impact, Rockaoke contest finalists and other musical acts. Meanwhile, fashionistas can catch the latest summer trends on opening night, at the fashion show with top British brands.
Students can drop by the Education Pavilion and chat with alumni to see how a British education can be a life-changing experience. Sample the mouth watering assortment of British food and drink while watching outdoor films with your loved ones. Take selfies with the miniatures of iconic UK landmarks and pop culture reference like Abbey Road, Big Ben, Harry Potter’s Platform 9 ¾ and the Loch Ness monster.
Join all these activities and get a chance to win round trip tickets to the UK courtesy of Etihad Airways!
