2017 Guangzhou British Day
Saturday, 20th May
A fantastic day was had by all at last Saturday’s Guangzhou British Day! It was great to see so many guests from both the local and international community get together at Guangzhou’s wonderful Favorview Palace. This year marked the 6th anniversary of our annual British Day event and we were delighted to welcome over 3,500 guests, who all came to enjoy the “Tastes of Britain”. Although the British weather came as anticipated, the summer rain didn’t dampen our spirits and enthusiasm. We celebrated an afternoon with British bands playing live music, as well as lucky draw dips with over 100 prizes including round-trip flight tickets to London and an European city.

Tastes of Britain
Our event brought a taste of Britain to Guangzhou, a city embraces different culture. At the event, guests experienced both interesting and authentic British treats, ranging from fish and chips to ciders, British ales and Scottish gin. There was also plenty for the children, who enjoyed the ice cream and candy floss on offer, as well as the bouncy castle. The rain failed to dampen the enthusiasm of the guests, as they continued to have a great time whilst under a sea of colourful umbrellas. Our live stage was continuously crowded with those rocking out to amazing and wonderful performances, such as the live bagpipe show. In addition, the excellent performance by students from Yew Wah International Education School-Guangzhou and Citic Lake Bilingual International School added a beautiful quality to the day.
Just like the wonderful British Days that have taken place in previous years, this year’s event attracted thousands of guests and had all kinds of excellent prizes including airline tickets, restaurant vouchers and golf class trial vouchers. There were all kinds of unique booths at this year’s event. British Day title sponsor, QWOS held their U.K. Investment & Immigration Report Press Conference at British Day this year, which provided professional data analysis of UK investment and immigration for the guests.
