SOLD OUT! Saturday 25th May – Festive Club Lunch in Cannes during the 72nd International Film Festival

SOLD OUT! Saturday 25th May – Festive Club Lunch in Cannes during the 72nd International Film Festival


Dear Members and Guests,

Welcome to our sought after May event and the special atmosphere of the Cannes Film Festival.

Cannes is very animated during the Festival and this year it runs from May 14th to May 25th. Mexican film director Alejandro Gonzales Inárritu has been named Jury President this year. “The Revenant”, his most recent success, picked up 3 Oscars in 2016.

We will gather for an aperitif enhanced by palm trees, white sand and azure sea at La Plage Barrière le Gray d’Albion Restaurant on the Croisette. We will enjoy an excellent lunch with Club members and guests, including a surprise quiz.

This is one of our most popular events and perfect for bringing a friend or two. However, please book early as it sells out quickly.

The atmosphere can perhaps be best enjoyed on foot – the walk to the Palais des Festival is an easy and pleasant one along the sea and the Croisette.
