Monthly Event


Sunday June 2nd, 2019
 From 12 noon

New venue!
Mas Montel
2 Chemin du Mas Montel
30250 Asperes

 GPS :  N 43.809248 - E 4.042532 
Our new location, the Mas Montel, is one of the oldest vineyards in the region, producing wine since the 9th century. In the hands of the Granier family since 1945, the Mas Montel is in the village of Asperes close to Sommieres. It's signposted from the centre of the village, and you'll also see BritsNimes posters and balloons marking the route  from the village centre.

The picnic will be held in the shade of the large trees in front of the Mas, and, as always, will be a relaxed get-together - chill out, enjoy being with friends, be entertained by the live music, join in the singing and - above all - have fun!

The afternoon commences at 12:30 pm with snacks and a wine tasting to sample Mas Montel's award-winning wines (available for sale after the tasting!)

Our very own BritsNimes House Band - Stuart, Howard, Lynne, Anthony and Roger - perform their own inimitable renderings of popular hits.

 Picnic details 
 - Bring a savoury and/or a sweet dish to share  (sorry, no BBQ this year)
and your own plates, cutlery, glasses, cups, etc !
- We'll provide tables, chairs, wine, water and soft drinks, plus tea and coffee.

- At the end of the picnic, we'd appreciate a hand from everyone to help
clear up after the festivities - thank you!

Adults &  guests -  €5 per person, children under 12 - free
