All the fun of the festival
Join in this October's Le Festival aux Quat'Saisons.
One of the most hotly anticipated tickets in Le Manoir's calendar is Le Festival aux Quat'Saisons. This gastronomic and musical extravaganza blends intimate concerts by some of the biggest names in showbiz with celebration dinners created by Raymond Blanc and his team.
Each evening begins at Le Manoir with a Champagne Laurent-Perrier reception, before a torch-lit walk to the idyllic, 13th-century church of St Mary's for the concert performance. Afterwards, you stroll back to Le Manoir for a sumptuous five-course feast, where each night's performer is guest of honour. Complementing the dishes are some of Raymond Blanc's favourite wines, while coffee and petits fours bring the evening to a close.
The artists, major names from the worlds of opera, classical music and jazz, are announced every June. As Monsieur Blanc says, "Over the years Le Festival has become the ultimate event for those of us who relish combining two of life's great pleasures - food and music. As always, I'm convinced that this year's will be the best ever!"
