London, UK - Message from Philippine Ambassador, His Excellency Enrique A Manalo
Embassy of the Philippines, London
I would like to invite all Filipinos in the United Kingdom and British friends of the Philippines to come out and support the Philippines' participation in the Lord Mayor's Show on Saturday 12th November 2011, from 10:00 AM until 2:30 PM.
This will be the first time that the Philippines will participate in the 800-year old parade and presents the new Lord Mayor of London, and runs from Mansion House to the Royal Courts of Justice and back.
The Philippine Embassy and the Department of Tourism (London) are pleased to present the fruition of the collaboration with the Filipino community organizations that has created a float showcasing the sights and sounds of our country to the British people.
Entitled Colours of the Philippines, the float was conceived by Filipino-British designer Rodrigo Enriquez, who also designed one of the 29 commemorative 50p coins of the London 2012 Olympics.
The float will feature popular Filipino-British celebrities, and will escorted by the Lahing Kayummangi dance troupe, Doce Pares fighting club, Philippine Generations and sectoral representatives of Filipino workers in the country.
For more details, please visit the Embassy on Facebook at www.facebook.com/PhilippineEmbassyLondon and on Twitter at @PhilEmbLondon and #PinoyLordMayors.
I look forward to seeing you at this landmark event to cheer our float along the parade route and help promote the beauty and excellence of the Philippines.
ENRIQUE A MANALO
