BE part in making history as the first-ever Filipino food and music festival in London, the Filipino Beats x Bites, happens at the “35th London Barrio Fiesta” on July 20 and 21 at the Apps Court Farm in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey near Hampton Court Palace.

“London Barrio Fiesta” is the biggest two-day Summer festival in Europe, which showcases Filipino culture and talents through the various activities, booths, and performances.
