Welcome to BritWeek™

A Letter from The Honorable Bob Peirce, Chairman of BritWeek™

Welcome to the BritWeek™ site, celebrating British connections with California. Here you will find information about all kinds of events around the Golden State that have British connections. These include sports, fashion events, car rallies, plays, concerts, art exhibits, film screenings, business mixers, pub and restaurant news and much more.

BritWeek.org has information about British organizations around the State and has links to many other sites you might find useful. There are also articles and features about British ties to California, including interesting historic links.

The highlight of BritWeek™ is the annual program of events each spring. BritWeek2010 was held in April and May in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, and this year for the first time we introduced events in San Francisco. Watch this space for details on 2011 events, or click here to subscribe to our newsletter and keep up to date with plans as they emerge. You can also revisit BritWeek2008 and BritWeek 2009 to read about dozens of exciting events held in those years and view photo galleries with hundreds of shots of the celebrity launches and other fun occasions.

We hope you will enjoy this site.  We welcome your feedback and suggestions for improving our program next year, and look forward to seeing you at BritWeek2011 events.


Bob Peirce
BritWeek Chairman
