If you are in London for Pride on 1st July, Hilton Honors is holding a private party on the roof of The Trafalgar hotel in Trafalgar Square.
Four pairs of tickets (as at 9pm last night) are available via the Hilton ‘experiences’ platform here.
They are priced at 75,000 points per pair. This seems pricey to me – you’d get a £250 hotel room for that – but let’s see.
Here is what you get:
“Join Hilton’s exclusive Pride in London after-party on the rooftop at The Trafalgar St. James London, Curio Collection by Hilton, overlooking Trafalgar Square and London’s spectacular skyline. This invite-only event begins as the march draws to a close, serving guests free-flowing drinks, colorful canapes, and a whole lot of “Yas, Queen!” Be prepared to strut your stuff with drag performances as we celebrate the 51st year of Pride in London.
This experience for two (2) includes:
- Tickets to Hilton’s exclusive Pride in London after-party on Saturday, July 1, 2023
- Complimentary drinks and canapes with a colorful twist
- Leading entertainment and performances”
I think some Head for Points readers attended last year – if you read this, do let us know in the comments how it went.
