Fortress Fortnight


Following on from the huge success of the Chateau L’Etoc Après Beach Bar this summer,  Alderney Performing Arts with other key collaborators on the island are planning a “pop- up” jazz bar Fortress Fortnight in FOUR forts in the last half of July next Summer.

The concept is to put on a series of stunning  “pop up” jazz, classical bars and “Cocktail dinatoire” . Copious canape evenings at FOUR key fortresses around the island. The forts that are currently under negotiation will be Chateau L’Etoc, Essex Castle, Raz Island and Fort Tourgis.  Each location will have its own musical twist look and themed feel.  After the fortress festival, Chateau L’Etoc après beach bar will be open twice a week onwards until the end of August.

Alderney has a unique fortress heritage offering some of the most sensational biosphere marine views in the United Kingdom.  Tourists who visit the island normally can only view private forts from the outside, however this will be a wonderful chance for all visitors to enjoy them from the inside with some great music, original cocktails and delicious food.

A more detailed  confirmed programme will be published very soon!
