As early as the dawn of July 16 last year, guards stationed at the Lampton Park Hounslow, London started noticing a throng of Filipinos slowly filling the park grounds. As soon as the screams echoed with the arrival of the artists, the guards knew it was no ordinary picnic.
The following day, July 17, Pinoys nearly tripled the crowd and made London Barrio Fiesta the biggest Pinoy event ever in Europe.
This year, ABS-CBN Europe Ltd. (TFC Europe) hopes to gather the Filipinos together once again as it sets the stage for London Barrio Fiesta 2012 with the best of Filipino summer.
Attuned to its theme “Pinoy Summer, Da Best Forever,” TFC Europe will feature just one but two sets of stars to bring joy to our kababayans in this part of the continent.
On Saturday, June 30, former Budoy lead star Gerald Anderson, World Championships of the Performing Arts (WCOPA) champion Jed Madela, stand-up comedienne Giselle Sanchez, and Banana Split comedienne Angelica Panganiban will entertain our kababayans at the Lampton Park Hounslow.
The following day, singer-heartthrob Jericho Rosales, Giselle Sanchez, Jed Madela, and Dahil Sa Pag-ibig actress Christine Reyes will treat the Filipinos to a whole day fiesta of songs, dances and irreverent comedy.
Out to prove that it is the best in ‘kasihayan’ or fun and enjoyment, TFC will culminate the TFCKat, the first all-Filipino international talent search, on the June 30 stint.
After weeks of deliberations, the winner will not only bag prizes in cash and kind but a recording contract as well with TFC Europe sister company Star Records.
Pinoys in London and even nearby areas can get a chance to win 3-month FREE TFC subscriptions, gift packs and meet-and-greet passes with the guest Kapamilya artists by pre-registering at www.londonbarriofiesta.com. For more information, visit this website.
