Soubock Music Venue, Cauville, Normandy
I would imagine that when you think about what to do within 15 minutes of Eco-Gites of Lenault, going to a rock concert may not be your first thought. But you would be wrong as in fact, LESS than 15 minutes from the gite is Soubock, a custom built concert venue. We finally we got our act together on Saturday and went to watch THE MAIN STREET NEGRITAS, a tribute band to The Rolling Stones.
We decided to have the meal beforehand so for €24 each we got a 2 course meal and rock concert over 2 hours long. THE MAIN STREET NEGRITAS are pretty good although we did feel that the lead singer might have been better not trying to emulate Mick Jagger: his singing was good but his prancing left a bit to be desired! The drummer and guitarists were, however, excellent. Sorry about the quality of the photo as it was taken on Simon's phone:
There are some better photos here and here.
Soubock concerts coming up include:
Back to the 80's Super Party on March 5th 2016
Gaëlle Buswell / Witch Doctors (rock and blues) on March 12th 2016
Vintage - a 70's rock tribute band on March 19th 2016
You can also hire the venue for private parties and they organise a car sharing service. I'd need to ask if they could detour via Eco-Gites of Lenault, though. For further details click here for the Soubock website and their Facebook page here.
So now you can enjoy both the peace and quiet of the countryside and a concert when staying at Eco-Gites of Lenault. Not bad eh?
