It wasn’t long before they saw a need in the area for a country style restaurant serving homemade food, the restaurant was popular they started having live music evenings which proved to be a hit, especially when they were held in the gardens on summer evenings.
Realising that there was very little in the way of music festivals in this area they held their first one 8 years ago, and this is where they are today, bringing to France some big international bands. The festival has no sponsors and is self funded from ticket sales.
The whole family pitch in to organise the event and would love to see you there!
If you can imagine driving through the French country side in the middle of summer and
stumbling across what looks like a huge family party in the middle of nowhere, then
that’s our festival. People of all ages gather together to relax, enjoy, listen, party, dance,
eat & drink with family and friends. The music styles are varied, we host rock, indie,
reggae, ska, electro-swing and acoustic artists, from local acts and young performers
during the day to some amazing professional acts travelling from all over France, UK,
Belgium, Germany, there’s something for everyone. Previous years have seen Slade,
Eddie & the Hot Rods, Electro Swing Circus, Nick Harper, Will and the People, Ultimate
Eagles etc. come to play for us.
This year Mystery Jets, the Bootleg Beatles and Dr. Feelgood are heading the line up,
supported by 14 other acts.
