Posted by Admin
The Brits took over Los Angeles to celebrate art, culture, film and television at the beautiful Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica. The stars came out dressed Brit proper and ready to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of BritWeek. MillionaireMatch got a chance to talk to the British stars and their friends.
The evening was decked out in red and black to represent the UK flag. "I can't believe it's been 10 years," said Bob Pierce who is the co-founder of BritWeek. The non-profit organization hosts this event every spring throughout greater Los Angeles as well as in Orlando and Miami.
Some of Hollywood's best Brits made an appearance. Celebrities who attended included actor Harry Hamlin, Ross King, Maxine Peake (Shameless), Jimmy Akingbola (Arrow), Celia Imrie (Downtown Abbey), Carlton Gebbia (Housewives of Beverly Hills) and Huw Collins (Pretty Little Liars).
Guests were able to enjoy the performances by Alexander and BC Jean, who was a contestant on American Idol Season 7. To make it a full Brit experience, delicious UK sweets and snacks covered every corner for guests to grab. From chips to candies, there was plenty for those Brits who may have been missing home. The best treat of the evening was the desserts made by Princess Diana's former chef, Chef Darren McGrady. His famous Butter Toffee Bread Pudding put a smile on everyone's face.
"BritWeek's Tenth Anniversary was our best celebration to date, connecting creatives of L.A. and the U.K." says Pierce.
The event was sponsored by Fairmont Miramar Hotel, BBC Worldwide, Marks & Spencer and Blue Fish.
