Burlesque at Château de Lartigolle, Gers, France

Beloved Smith & Friends self-catering property Château de Lartigolle in Gers is known for hosting special social shindigs, Burlesque at Château de Lartigolle, Gers, Franceand this summer they really wowed us with their Burlesque event. Hope you like my and Gavin Mitchell’s snapshots of this rather sexy soirée.

As well as serving a feast in their party-perfect vaulted cellar, London’s Tassel Club entertained revellers with risqué performances from a Marilyn-esque Banbury Cross and Bettie-Page-y Annette Betté Kallow (although what truly took our breath away was Miss Peacock’s magnificent hula-hooping).

Soundtracking these festivities throughout were top-hatted tune-spinners Bart & Baker and the Parisian DJs’ unique electro-poppy blend of swing. But enough of this chit-chat – what you really want are some snapshots from these sexy shenanigans, yes? So here we go…

    I concur with Max that this looks amazing. Going on a wine tour later this year and may have to take in this event on the way!
