The eyes of the world focused on California this spring, marking our sixth anniversary!
BritWeek 2012 has been bigger and better than ever. Launched in 2007 with a few select events, BritWeek quickly expanded in scope to become a springtime fixture on the Los Angeles calendar, and within two seasons evolved into a landmark festival celebrated around the state.
Each year, thousands of people attended a myriad of arts, entertainment, cultural, business, social and charity events in and around Los Angeles, Orange County and San Francisco. In 2011, with nearly 350,000,000 broadcast, trade, print and online media impressions internationally (including a special segment on American Idol), BritWeek has truly gone global!
THE celebration of British excellence in California, BritWeek (a non-profit organization) operates with cooperation from US and UK government entities, leading businesses and local organizations of all sizes to produce a stellar line-up of events for every budget and inclination. The program features art & design, film & television, music, theatre, literature, science & technology, fashion, retail, cuisine, pro sports, vintage cars, business innovation awards, star-studded red carpet receptions and charity galas, museum exhibitions…and the list expands each year!
In addition to events of wide-ranging interest, BritWeek also plays an important role in promoting bilateral business relations and also presents a number of signature programs, each with a specialized focus. We are proud to continue our tradition in 2012, and look forward to seeing you for another unparalleled celebration of British contributions to the US-UK Special Relationship.
