Total French Street Festival

16 - 17 April 2016 Melrose Arch 

(TICKETS CAN BE PURCHASED FOR ANY EVENT ON THE DAY AT MELROSE ARCH)

Strolling the cobbled streets veiled in the heady and floral notes of the boutique perfumery I am dramatically swept away to the back streets of Paris.  A smooth young man with the complexion of whipped butter, baguette in arm, winks at me from behind his cocked beret, as his girlfriend, draped in the finest silk smock runs her hands through the rainbow of scarves lining the boutique window.  Across the Piazza,  two young girls, with fistfuls of summer coloured macaroons, squeal with innocent delight as the street magician skilfully crafts a tulip coloured balloon into a French poodle….Oui Oui, this is Paris!
