As the summer festival season approaches, why not do it the French way and party in style at the Peacock Society Festival?
We're giving you the chance to win one of two pairs of tickets to the festival, which takes place in Paris July 11-12. You'll also get a round trip on the Eurostar, and a two-night stay at uber cool Mama Shelter, designed by the legendary French designer, Philip Starck. The Peacock Society Festival is held in the botanic wonders of Parc Floral de Paris, and features acts such as Richie Hawtin, Darkside, Kerri Chandler, Cassius, Paul Kalkbrenner, Agoria, Brodinski, plus many more.
It boasts two dancefloors across a warehouse and an open-air stage, all snuggled between the tall trees. With its secret pavilions, surprise parties, pop up stores and clandestine night walks, you'll never know what to expect next in this magical world of French festival fun.
As the name suggests, the vista at this Point Pleasant restaurant plays a part in its appeal – it's right on the banks of the Thames, where the river weaves past Wandsworth Park. There's a good-looking terrace upstairs that should prove a draw when the sun is out. The modern-European looks adventurous, with dishes such as wild boar ravioli with butter and thyme, chestnut purée, lavender petals and grated dark chocolate, beef tartare with parmesan, cured free-range egg yolk and cep dust, and creamed carrot soup and seared mackerel with baby carrots and fennel scented vegetables. Bar snacks including plantain chips with coconut mayo, parsnip crisps with houmous and chorizo croquettes with aioli help soak up wines from a list focused on the old world.
