Meanwhile, at the pub…

Fred Tousch decided to experiment on the exclusively French festival audience. However, he warns us in this temporarily revamped English pub-like bar : « We’ll have to work within ourselves ! »

Oh yes we do, as Fred decided to test our « fairplay » side, that feeling we allegedly get towards our British neighbours during sports events like rugby. To do so, Fred Tousch shows us, for 15 minutes, the most painful moments in French rugby history, i.e the best British trials that humiliated our national team.

A bit risky…and to top it all up, he encourages the audience to support England and boo the French team every time the players get the ball.

The point of no return is reached when, by way of ultimate proof of respect, we are invited to sing England’s national anthem during a slide show of the most beautiful moments in British rugby history.

The good atmosphere is henceforth sealed in the memory of the ZEPA network and a few hours later, it is The Magic Number musicians turn with their Gipsy-Jazz-Swing influences to fire the bar and to transform the try.
