St George’s Spring Party: Moustey – Saturday 25th April, 2020

It is time again for BBC’s annual St George’s Spring Party – and what feast could be more English than a curry?

The celebration starts at midday with an aperitif followed by a 3 course lunch.  Wine is not included so please bring your own.

We will be entertained by Clownette and BBClown with magic shows – and maybe something royal as it will be a few days after Her Majesty’s 94th birthday.

 


Our host: We are delighted to be returning to Nigel’s house www.airialmoustey.com

His house is in the Les Landes forest and just a 35 minute drive from the Rocade.

Dogs are aways welcome Chez Sami – the garden is securely fenced – so bring the whole family!

In previous years this event was fully booked and had a waiting list. Spaces are limited – so in order not to be disappointed, please book early.

Format for the day

The day starts at 12 noon to enjoy an aperitif together before settling down to a three course lunch (buffet style).

  • Welcome Aperitif
  • Starter (samosas, bhajis, spring rolls)
  • Freshly cooked curries (from mild to wild, chicken and vegetarian)
  • Selection of desserts (more French than Indian!)
  • Please bring your own wine/drinks etc
  • Music

Hopefully the weather will be a bit kinder to us than it was in 2019 and there will not be any unwelcome April showers.  We will be outside, but under cover in the BBC open marquees.
