Hilton is running another London ‘Secret Socials’ in November

Hilton Honors is running another of its ‘Secret Socials’ gigs on 14th November. This one will be at The Biltmore in Mayfair.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is that it sold out so quickly that we couldn’t get an alert up in time. This is despite the fact that tickets have gone up from 35,000 to 60,000 Hilton Honors points per pair (which I’d value at £200), and that the number of pairs made available to members was doubled to 20.

Hilton Secret Socials are back

Recent artists who have played these gigs include Kylie Minogue, Ellie Goulding, Stormzy and Becky Hill. You won’t find who is playing here until the night itself.

I can guarantee, based on recent ones, that you will be overrun with champagne and canapes both pre and post gig.

I know at least two readers managed to get tickets via a SeatSpy alert. I had already been invited on a media pass, but I don’t know who the artist is either! If you did get tickets, I’ll see you there.

    Can’t seem to get a price with the 25% discount applied in the Accor sale even though I have clicked on the offer and am logging in as a member. I have an apartment booked for 3 days in Feb staying in Bordeaux and the “offer” price is coming in as more expensive than what I have booked already. Seems a bit strange and looks like a marketing con to me?

    Worked well with 2 SNUs in Dubai to get a great price for 2 nights in a suite
