Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is BritWeek?

BritWeek is a celebration of all things British in California, highlighting the amazing depth and breadth of British connections here. The Brits are the biggest foreign investors in the state, and they make their mark in every aspect of life and culture.

How and when did BritWeek start?

BritWeek is the brainchild of renowned producer Nigel Lythgoe, who in 2007 approached then British Consul General Bob Peirce with the idea for an event that would showcase the rich connections between Britain and Southern California. From humble beginnings, BritWeek rapidly 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.

Where does BritWeek take place?

BritWeek events in 2007, 2008 and 2009 took place at numerous venues throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties. In 2010 and 2011, events were held across Southern California and in San Francisco as well.
