A right Highland Fling!

Last week our guests here at Les Deux Platanes had an unexpected treat. They arrived in time to participate in a medieval banquet that was part of a major two day Franco - Scottish fete in our nearest town, Chatillon sur Indre.

In addition to an excellent meal we were provided with a range of entertainment during the evening. The French need little excuse to organise a fete and this one was outstanding. 

Looking back to the 100 years war it appears the town of Chatillon had some links with Scotland - so they formed a Franco - Scottish society and the rest is history as they say.  
Nearly 600 attended the meal
The roast boars were displayed for all to see

The serving ladies were all local volunteers
Plus dancing of course!
In addition to the meal the town was transformed into medieval magnificence with stalls selling food, craft displays and all manner of activity.
