Bonjour, we have some great news: get out your calendars and circle July 11 to 14 because Auckland is getting a four-day French festival. Le Renault French Festival is back for 2019, bringing everything delicious all the way from France.
With two epic events, there is something for every French lover to look forward to. Firstly, Shed 10 will play host to One Night In France after huge success in the past two years. Book a themed table, choose your team colour (blue, white, or red, naturally) and enjoy an amazing five-course meal and a glass of bubbly with the added bonus of going into the draw to win a trip to New Caledonia.
Next, is the French Village which will take place in Shed 10 and The Cloud. This is your chance to experience four days in France. Like last year, there will be French food, wine, fashion, language, eight pétanque fields and 40 market stalls but this time there will also be a stage for a live concert, a movie theatre a French Bistrot and the promise of more surprises. Open from 10am Thursday and Friday and from 9am to 10pm Saturday and 9am to 4pm on Sunday, it's a must.
