A Letter from Bob Peirce, the British Consul General in Los Angeles

Bob Pierce

Welcome to the BritWeek site, celebrating British links with the Los Angeles region. Here you will find information about upcoming British events, concerts, car rallies, plays, art exhibits, business mixers, sporting events, films, shopping, pub and restaurant news and many other things. If you are organizing such events and want to have them posted on this site, please click here to contact our webmaster.

BritWeek.org has information about British organizations in the area and has many links to other sites you may want to visit. This site also contains some articles and features about the British in Southern California from the beginning of the last century until the present day. You are guaranteed to be surprised by the breadth and depth of the British contribution to Californian life, from being the biggest foreign investors to being prominent in all forms of artistic endeavor.

The brainchild of 19 Entertainment President Nigel Lythgoe, BritWeek organizes a program highlighting the rich connections between Britain and Southern California once a year. Last year BritWeek2008 ran from late April well into May, and offered many dozens of events in Los Angeles and Orange County. Click Revisit BritWeek2008 on this site for details and see the photo gallery for hundreds of shots of the celebrity launch party, the comedy awards dinner and other fun occasions.

BritWeek2009 will kick off next April 30th. Watch this space!
