In addition to the activities already listed, we also propose:
End of January every year, the ESC honours the life and work of the Scottish poet Robert Burns. Guests enjoy a traditional Scottish 3-course menu including the famous McSweens’s haggis. Live musicians on stage for the ceilidh dancing together with the pipers provide musical interludes throughout the evening. A real treat!
A golden opportunity to connect with old friends and meet with new people in the relaxed atmosphere of the garden of l’Escale. Good food, games for the kids and mellow jazz contribute in making this such a worthwhile experience.
Summer Barbecue with a touch of Platinum Jubilee 🇬🇧
SUNDAY 26 JUNE, starting at 12 noon
As trailed in the April newsletter, the 2022 version of the ESC annual summer barbecue will be held on Sunday, 26th June at L’Escale in La Robertsau, 78 rue du Dr François. The tram stop at the end of Line E and a decently sized car park will make your life easy. The event will take place in the peaceful private grounds of the club – with a fallback of using the extensive indoor space in the case of an unlikely shower of rain. Live, mellow music will be provided and there will be several special British-themed events to mark the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. As usual, the entrance fee includes all meat and drinks. We will be offering the very traditional and popular Pimm’s at the apéro. Each attendee/couple/family is asked to bring along a salad or dessert to share with others. The fun starts at 12 noon, and you are encouraged to arrive on time or risk missing the best bits! A detailed programme as well as signing up instructions will be sent in due course.
The scenic outdoors of the “Orangerie” in Strasbourg are the perfect setting for our autumn family picnic. You bring your own food and we provide for the entertainment and an awesome afternoon together.
May picnic in the Orangerie park
SUNDAY 29 MAY: 12.00 noon
We are inviting you to join us for our first spring picnic starting at 12 (noon) on Sunday, 29th May. Hopefully the weather will be glorious, blue skies and brilliant sunshine. Then the first people to arrive will bag a lovely shady spot under a beech tree by the lake and soon there will be a colourful array of rugs under its branches. Please bring food for your group. ESC will provide a selection of beverages. Please sign up here: May Picnic. Hope to see you there!
and much more…
SATURDAY 18 JUNE: 10:00 am
You are fond of strawberries, why not pick them yourself and make an enjoyable family-friendly summer activity out of it! So come and join us on Saturday, 18th June at 10:00 am “Au pays des fraises” in Vendenheim, Allée du Château de Sury. We are sure you will enjoy plucking brightly coloured, sweet-smelling gems like strawberries and maybe raspberries if they are already ripe by this time of the year. You may wonder about the price. There is nothing to pay in advance as you will be charged at the end based on the weight of the berries you’ve picked. Please don’t forget to bring your own basket/recipient. If you are interested in joining us, please sign up here: Berry picking. Carpooling can be arranged.
