Quatorze Juillet Luncheon

We are delighted to invite you to an elegant luncheon to celebrate Quatorze Juillet in 2019. Our hosts will be the Riverston Tea Rooms at the corner of Quay Street and Denham Street in Rockhampton, placing us in the heart of the Rockhampton River Festival on that Sunday.

On Sunday 14 July, commencing at 12 noon, and running until 2pm, please join us for a two-course meal, including one complimentary drink. This event is by ticket only, so I am delighted to announce that tickets are available to purchase, in the same way that we sold tickets for our French Film Festival.

Alliance Francaise members will be given an advantage in terms of first preference for tickets and a reduced price. This offer ceases from Monday 1 July, and after this time, the event will become open to non-members as well, and the cost for the event will increase by $10 (member or not).

Our menu will be:

Smoked Chicken Nicoise Salad or Navarin of Lamb (alternate drop) and

Apricot Tarte Tatin.

Your pre-purchased ticket will cost you $60.00. Single members can bring one guest for the same cost.

Your complimentary drink can be chosen from the hot drinks menu of the café, or a glass from the wine list that I have arranged for the day – French wines that you will be unlikely to see at another function in Rockhampton. Additional drinks can be bought on your own account, with the wines available by the glass or bottle.

We are fortunate that Riverston has agreed to host us for the National Day of France at their stylish venue, during an already-busy weekend for them, and that they have prepared a special menu for our group. For our part, this means that their kitchen needs to know final numbers by Monday 8 July, and tickets cannot be purchased after that date. As well, we will need to vacate the venue by 2.00pm, as there is another function following us.

So please hold that date in your calendar, think about a chic outfit, practise your singing voice for La Marseillaise, and follow this link to buy you tickets: Click here.
