An interesting event has just popped up on the Hilton Honors experiences website. The next ‘Secret Socials’ evening is here, on 13th June.
Is it worth a 35,000 points punt?
This is what it says:
Secret Socials is back! We are excited to bring our Hilton Honors members another music event in style!
Redeem your Hilton Honors Points to kick off the summer with an evening of fun for you and a guest! This once-in-a-lifetime experience at the Canopy by Hilton London City will include complimentary welcome drinks and canapes, followed by an intimate performance from a very special celebrity guest.
Experience for two (2):
– Two (2) Tickets to an Exclusive Music Performance by a Celebrity Guest at the Canopy London City
– Complimentary Welcome Drinks and Canapes
Previous performers at these events have included Kylie Minogie, Ellie Goulding and Stormzy. The HfP team was at the Stormzy concert in December at the Hilton London Metropole and it was a really good night. (We bought two tickets directly from the Hilton website at full price and were then gifted a third by Hilton’s PR team.)
You may not be surprised to hear that Stormzy is not really my thing. However, the tickets did include unlimited champagne pre- and post-concert as well as substantial canapes (eg mini burgers) which made the evening well worth it.
Sinead and Rhys are big Stormzy fans – apparently this was the third time Sinead has seen him – and you can’t deny his influence on British rap. Sinead once saw him on the main stage at Glastonbury, so being on a sofa about 50 feet from the stage was a substantial change this time!
We honestly have no idea who is performing this time and as it clashes with a major industry event I won’t be there to find out. It may be worth a punt though.
Hilton is asking 35,000 points for two tickets which, on our 0.33p valuation, is roughly £100-worth. This is same cost as at Christmas.
Do you think they will rustle up a suitably big name, and one which you would actually want to sit through?
Up to you ….
However, you could get through £100 of free drinks and food between two of you at the pre- and post-event parties, so the odds are in your favour regardless. The Canopy, which is at Aldgate, is also a smart new hotel worth seeing – here is our review.
You can redeem on the Hilton Auctions platform here – search for UK events. There are ten pairs of tickets left at the time of writing – none have yet been redeemed.
