Full Circle

We are all getting all revved up for this year’s mini festival, ‘Le Weekend’.  It’s on the 4th and 5th July and takes place at Broadheath House, just outside Presteigne.  It’s a nice country pad with a wing and formal gardens designed by Clough Williams-Ellis.  (You know him what did all that Port Merion stuff!) The event takes place in the orchard and the formal gardens, on the large terrace and the Loggia and if you can’t understand my rather tricolourful poster  here’s the deal.

It kicks off Saturday lunchtime with John and Pam doing an Ottolenghi style three-course lunch for 60 people (first come, first served for tickets, only available from Courtyard Antiques, Presteigne).  Email us if you would like to come and can’t get to Presteigne, info@fullcirclefestival.co.uk and the music for that is supplied by French piano whizz, Jean Louis, AKA Macadam Piano.

Then at 5 o’clock the evening fun begins.  If there is any nicer way to spend a warm summer evening than sitting on the terrace at Broadheath with a glass of red (specially imported for the event from Trattoria La Vialla) or one of Huw’s specially selected local ales while listening to the exquisite voice of Nuala Honan, or watching Macadam Piano or the clowning of Jeanne Cortez, maybe grabbing some falafels or barbecued kebabs, sliding up and doing a tango to Little Rumba or even hitting the ballroom for a quick jive to The Black Rapids then I don’t know what it is.

On Sunday from 12 noon, the third part of the Le Weekend starts with a free brunch – French toast, honey and strawberries with a glass of Bucks Fizz.  For entertainment there is the fabulous Lori Campbell, local heroes The Poobahs and then the mighty Curtis Eller’s American Circus.  Curtis comes on like a skinny mid-western dirt farmer        who has been invaded by the spirit of Elvis.  Please all come, you’ll love it.

  3. Hi Pete… is there any parking at the full circle site or do we need an electric bike? Thanks… Bill’s Dad…. P.S. We could get a bus from Kingsland but they cut down on the evening ones just after the war.
