It’s all systems go for the biggest and grandest annual Kapamilya event in United Kingdom – the Barrio Fiesta sa London 2013 happening on July 20 and 21.  This history-making event organized by the Philippine Centre and The Filipino Channel (TFC) is gearing up for another record-breaking event as it moves to a larger venue, the Apps Court Farm near Hampton Court Palace, and promises to bring eight iconic stars to deliver all-new excitement to the yearly fiesta.


According to Barrio Fiesta Hermano Mayor and Philippine Centre Vice-Chairman of the Board Joseph Pariñas, “Given TFC’s undeniable contribution to the monumental success of the Barrio Fiesta in the last three years and its position as the premier network in Europe and in the world, the network remains to be our top-of-mind media and commercial partner for the 2013 festivities and for the years to come.” 

In response to Mr. Parinas’ statement, ABS-CBN Europe Ltd. & ABS-CBN Middle East FZ-LLC Managing Director Edgardo Garcia said: “TFC is really honored for the opportunity to work  with Philippine Center in staging  the Barrio Fiesta sa London during the last three years. Our experience has clearly shown that there is not only great synergy between our groups but, more importantly, a shared mission – to be in the service of the Filipino.  We are humbled by the continued trust given to us by the Philippine Center when they renewed our partnership for the next five years. We are also thankful to our kababayans in the United Kingdom (U.K.) for making TFC not just a trusted brand in Filipino programming but also top-of-mind in organizing Filipino-centric events.”

Bringing the Kapamilya brand of entertainment and fun on both dates are no less than Queen of Teleserye and Movie Theme Songs Angeline Quinto and breakthrough comedienne Tart Rosales aka Yaya Doris of the phenomenal, light-hearted series Be Careful With My Heart.

On July 20, Saturday, teleserye Princess Kim Chiu and Kapamilya leading man Xian Lim of the top-rating teleserye Ina, Kapatid, Anak will thrill fans of their love team as they perform their signature theme songs.  Joining Quinto, Rosales, Chiu and Lim is cross-over music trio Blake.  Blake, a group formed on the social networking site facebook, has earned the interest of both music industry professionals and listeners worldwide (including Hollywood celebrities) for their covers of famous pieces such as With or Without You by fellow European act U2.
