La Giraudière Volunteer Night Out at Fète De Musique Barbezieux

La Giraudière Volunteer Night Out at Fète De Musique Barbezieux

After a fabulous dinner at the local restaurant Le Samtho at Place de l’Eglise in the village of Brossac Saturday evening, six volunteers headed out for a night on the town in beautiful Barbezieux, about 20 minutes from La Giraudière. This is a free annual music festival which takes place every summer all over France. At least five performing stages are set up around the town and performances are scheduled throughout the day and night until the early hours.

There was something for everyone with a wide array of music types from rock, blues, jazz, to DJs churning out tunes on the street. One of the most entertaining, or perhaps amusing parts of the evening was watching the groups of people learning Line Dancing to some dodgy cross between Irish traditional music and American Country’n’Western music. It was hilarious!

In fact, we ended up finishing the night with a boogie at the disco which starts at midnight in the town square right outside l’eglise de Barbezieux. Overall, the music was fantastic and the La Giraudière volunteers soaked up the great atmosphere with a few beers and a bop!! It was a fantastic experience to take part in a really authentically French cultural event and mix with the locals. Whole families were out together and it was a joy to see toddlers to grandparents strutting their stuff on the streets. Roll on the next night out for all at La Giraudière!
