What’s so GREAT about Britain? Everything!
What’s so GREAT about Britain? VisitBritain says just about everything, and the British tourism authority is ready to bring proof of this to Philippine shores next month.
VisitBritain will hold ‘Great British Festival’ from 7-9 March at High Street, Bonifacio Global City. The festival is part of the ongoing GREAT campaign that aims to boost Britain’s image as a tourism and business hub.
Those who visit the Great British Festival will be treated to cultural and music performances, sports activities, theatres and film showing, a fashion show and booths that will feature education, business, and tourism opportunities.
The Younghusbands will join the festivities on 8 March as they facilitate football drills at the Sports Area. Local bands like Bleu Rascals, She’s Only Sixteen and The Bloomfields will also perform on the 8th and 9th. The full schedule of activities can be viewed at the British Embassy Manila’s Facebook page.
Everyone is also invited to have an in-depth look at the colourful British fashion during British Fashion Month which started 9 February and ends 9 March. The exhibit features British fashion brands like Debenhams, Marks and Spencer, Speedo and Topshop that will give Filipinos an idea of everyday fashion in Britain.
Visitors will also get a chance to score discounts and freebies during British Fashion Month at various participating SM Malls, including SM Aura, SM Megamall and SM Mall of Asia.
