Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons Announces 2023 Summer Garden Party

Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, A Belmond Hotel, is pleased to announce the return of its famous annual Summer Garden Party.

Returning for the 39th year, in celebration of Bastille Day on 14 July, Le Manoir invites guests to this exclusive event, hosted by its two Michelin-starred Chef Patron, Raymond Blanc. A Provençal-style event deeply rooted in Le Manoir’s community, the Garden Party is an occasion celebrating food, craft, and shared experiences, to mark a significant moment of history.

Bastille Day, or ‘Fête nationale française’, is the national day of France, celebrated annually to commemorate the Storming of the Bastille – a major event in the French Revolution. A national holiday in France, there the streets are thronged with revellers as citizens participate in parades, picnics and parties. In true Gallic spirit, Chef Patron Raymond Blanc, born near Besançon in the Eastern Region of France, embraces these celebrations annually bringing the spirit of French revolution to Le Manoir.

The magnificent gardens at Le Manoir will be transformed to host the most decadent party, welcomed by a champagne and canapés reception, followed by an alfresco Barbeque feast prepared by the Michelin-starred team. Guests will enjoy an abundance of tastes and entertainment brought together by local producers, artists and artisans who will present their products and showcase their skills. As musicians play, everyone is invited to taste new dishes, tour the gorgeous grounds, sip Veuve Clicquot and be immersed in the pleasures of garden gastronomy.

Guests will meet the Le Manoir team and be introduced to a collection of their most respected, local suppliers.  Indulge in Hundred Hills’ sparkling wine from one of England’s most beautiful dry chalk valleys, or Hawkstone’s premium lager & cider. Capreolus Distillery’s Eaux de Vie captures the essence of rare fruit in its intricate Garden Swift gin on offer, while the Healthy Juice Company will provide fresh, raw alcohol-free alternatives.

Chef Patron, Raymond Blanc, speaks of the event: “Each year, my team joins me in wishing guests the happiest Bastille Day here at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. I am so looking forward to the celebration this July and the return of our annual garden party, where guests can delight in the magnificent gardens and we have the chance to shine a light on some of our wonderful producers. Together we will feast on great food and wine and embrace each other with much joie de vivre!”
