BritWeek Miami 2016
Now this sounds like a party! The annual celebration of British business and culture in South Florida kicks off February 10 with an amazing lineup of special events and presentations and we can not wait! The 4th Annual BritWeek Miami, in collaboration with the British Consulate-General Miami and UK Trade & Investment, is a weeklong series of business and cultural events designed to celebrate and build the thriving relationship between the UK and Florida. Given our upcoming trip that we are planning for London in June 2016, this is just the perfect timing for such an event!
This year’s lineup honors British influence across commerce and culture including the world of art, music, business, sport, technology, trade and finance. BritWeek Miami’s charity of choice is The Little Dreams Foundation, whose mission is helping fulfill the dreams of talented young kids without the financial means to achieve their goals in music, sport and art.
Below we have a list of all of the event, but we would like to bring your attention to one that looks especially interesting! An Exploration of Street Art, hosted by Miami Club Rum is happening right in the heart of Wynwood, highlighting the work of British and US street artists with works by Inkie and ABSTRK inspired by multiculturalism. How cool, right?
Also, for those attending the Miami Boat Show, keep an eye out for this: BritWeek and the UKTI are partnering with the International SeaKeepers Society for a special evening soiree and networking reception, Nautical Britain. Finally, we know that no British event would be complete without a sporting connection and this year BritWeek does not disappoint! Legendary Indian cricketer Farokh Engineer will be on hand for a UK vs. India Invitation Cricket Match, featuring HM Consul-GeneralDave Prodger and HM The Queen’s eldest grandson and BritWeek ambassador, Peter Phillips, followed by an Indian feast in Coconut Grove…my neighborhood!
We could go on and on, but take a look at the event agenda below and visit the BritWeek Miami website for more information!
