Any plans this weekend? Check out the Great British Festival at the Bonifacio High Street in Bonifacio Global City. Right smack in between the buildings, the British Embassy will be setting up several activity areas for you and your family to enjoy. Their main thrust is to bring the best of Britain to Manila.
British Ambassador Asif Ahmad is inviting everyone to join the three-day celebration. “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!”
TAKE NOTE: PRIZES! Oh yes, they will be raffling off prizes ranging from ONE DIRECTION tickets to round trip tickets to the UK.
As Amb. Ahmad mentioned, there will be something for everyone at the festival. For business executives, you may check out the trade exhibits. Students may be interested in checking out the education pavilion.
This is event is something you can enjoy with both friends and family. There will be a walking tour of a miniature UK with replicas of famous landmarks. It woulds like fun to take selfies and jumpshots there. Don’t forget to tag #GreatBritishFestival on your social media accounts!
I’m sure everyone will enjoy this race car simulation!
Families can enjoy the Great British Rockeoke, acoustic performances, a magic show, and an open air cinema that will show Harry Potter, James Bond and Sherlock. Plus for the grand finale, a performance by the ABSCBN Philharmonic Orchestra while enjoying British food and drinks by Chuck’s Grub, Union Jack Tavern, Wolf & Fox, and more as there is an increase in food and drink stalls this year.
