Hilton Kuala Lumpur in collaboration with the British High Commission Kuala Lumpur is showcasing the very best of what Britain has to offer at the GREAT Festival from 1st till 31st October. The GREAT Festival has just been launched in conjunction with the Shopping is GREAT campaign by the British High Commission on the 1st of October at Hilton Kuala Lumpur.
With the hotel transformed into a food experience venue with daily activities from its 10 restaurants and bars, guests are invited to explore the unique taste of Britain. Led by the only British Executive Chef in 5 star hotels in Kuala Lumpur, Warren Brown, who heads the hotel’s culinary team, the event will truly set itself apart.
Celebrity British chef, Michelin-starred restaurateur, author and GREAT brand Ambassador Gary Rhodes OBE will also be hosting one dinner event during the festival. Well-known as an ambassador for British cuisine, Gary has achieved what no other chef has previously managed to do: he has re-introduced the nation to its rich gastronomic heritage and uncovered a culinary culture to rival that of any other country in the world.
For the Shopping is GREAT contest, stand to win a shopping for TWO in London, inclusive of stay at the Hilton London, two premium economy return flights on British Airways, and £1000 pocket money to spend, courtesy of CIMB Bank. To be in the running, you need to spend RM250, or more in a single receipt at participating fashion outlets (for more info, visit the KL Hilton website).
