Supperclub on a Cannes Beach
After the great success of last Friday’s first beach supperclub we thought we had finally better get on with posting some of the great photographs taken by Lorrianne Caouette of BellaMiella Photography. We took to the very crowded public beach in Cannes with what can only be described as a great deal of apprehension and trepidation, not quite knowing what to expect from both the French Sun-worshippers and more worryingly the Cannes Gendarmes.
With an anticipated arrival of 36 guests at 7:30 SHARP (our stupid request!) it was a little unnerving to arrive at 6pm with three car loads of equipment, only to find the beach packed and with barely room for one more large beach towel, never mind a ten metre table and 36 chairs. Whilst there were a few angry words from some of the locals and threats to call the Mayor and police, in general the reaction was just one of bewilderment and surprise as they watched the Red Radish ‘Volunteer’ Swat Team (Thanks Iarla Byrne, Phil Eady and Helen McLeod) spring into very sweaty action. We managed to set up the whole thing in less than an hour although a few of the early arrivals (that will teach you!) were cajoled into helping. Lucy arrived with the FOOD 15 minutes before the first guests and voila we were all set for what we are sure was a truly unique event and at just €25 per person for great food and unlimited wine represented what must be the deal of the summer. All that is left for us to say is thanks to everyone for coming and making it such a very special evening and see you at the next one soon.
