Some seriously FRENCH FRIes at Friargate

FRENCH_FRIes-Small-webRiding Lights are very excited to announce that, this summer, we’re part of the cultural festival celebrating the Tour de France as it sets off from Yorkshire.

Some might wonder whether Le Tour is making a rather large detour to find itself in the North of England, but not us. No, we’re brushing off our franglais, and providing a spot of Yorkshire hospitality for Le Tour with a series of French themed events here at Friargate… on a Friday. In short….

FRI 2 May – FRI 4 July

We’ve got music from Flossie Malavialle (French Folk with a Yorkshire twist) and King Courgette (not-so-French folk). Or if you prefer something quieter you can join Geoffrey Stevenson (without words) and Nigel Forde (without stabilisers) for an evening of mime and poetry. Plus our hilarious band of improvisers will be creating some ‘franglais’ chaos with Right Ici Right Maintenant.

But that’s not all, why not take a look at the full programme of our French FRIes events to whet your appetite. Which is rather appropriate as at each French FRIes evening we’ll be offering a nice crisp Bordeaux from our neighbours across La Manche, and added interval chips from Plonkers, our neighbours around the corner.

We’d love to see you at Friargate this summer for some seriously French fun.
