Jazz Evenings - white party

Jazz Evenings - white party


Musical bliss in the gardens

Imagine that one evening in the run-up to the solstice, on the brink of summer, you slip on some light clothes in a beautiful pearly white.

Then, without a thought for tomorrow, you make your way to the gardens.
There’s a welcoming atmosphere, and you head for a lawn that’s soft and spongy, like moss.

You spread out your blanket and make yourself comfortable. Slowly. Peacefully.
You take a deep breath and relax; in just a few minutes, the concert is going to start.

From the very first notes, you feel a huge sense of serenity flood over you. You’re soothed by the breeze, even if you can hardly feel it.

Carefully selected jazz musicians have come from all over Occitania to bring you this captivating experience; you close your eyes and savour it.

But time goes by and you find yourself getting hungry; never fear, we’ve thought of everything to make sure that you have a good time!
Platters of nibbles and Occitan wines have been provided specially for you.
You’ll love our local products from Aveyron, the Tarn and the surrounding areas.

Suddenly the music stops, and already the night is closing in.
You adjust your shrug on your shoulders and leisurely head off, feeling like your feet are hardly touching the ground.

You leave this cocoon of comfort feeling soothed. And now you’re ready to dive into a glorious, hot summer...
