We promote creativity, excellence and innovation
BritWeek is a non-profit organization, established in Los Angeles in 2007 by Nigel Lythgoe OBE and the former Consul General Bob Peirce, to highlight the creative fusion between the United Kingdom and California.
BritWeek’s mission is to create greater awareness of the many ways in which Britain and the US work closely together, and further build this relationship to advance business, the arts, and philanthropy in both of these thriving regions of the world.
Every Spring, BritWeek hosts a program of events that promotes British creativity, innovation and excellence in California across multiple categories including, film & television, music, art, fashion, design, retail, sport, philanthropy, business, and more.
The events take place throughout Greater Los Angeles, Orange County and San Francisco. BritWeek has also expanded beyond California to the shores of Miami! The events attract support from thousands of people, including international celebrities, business and political leaders.
BritWeek's philanthropic contributions have included fundraising for numerous charities, including Malaria No More, Save the Children, LA’s BEST, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Big Brothers - Big Sisters, and programs promoting children’s sports, children's literacy and international professional internships.
