Live music


Fleur de Paris

Saturday only

This five piece band will bring a taste of Paris to our French Revolution themed weekend.


Café Manouche

Sunday only

Transporting listeners to France, this vintage gypsy style band will get you in the mood for some dancing.



Professional storyteller Justine de Mierre will be bringing terrifying tales – expect demons, devils and decapitation! With plenty of interaction and even the odd bit of extreme storytelling (a brand new story created on the spot from audience suggestions) Justine is sure to keep you on the edge of your seats.


Throughout the Fête Monsieur Bruyant will keep you informed with all the goings on and entertained as the twilight approaches and the blade falls again and again.


Madame Dupeur will be giving her most ‘accurate’ readings, from palm and crystal ball, not to mention the cards. The most astute may notice a certain theme to her fortunes, why not sit and learn your ‘future’. Will you go to visit the Guillotine or will you survive the revolution?

Photo time!
