If you're new to Le Dîner En Blanc and are wondering what all the fuss is about, here's how it all began and what you can expect.

How it all began...

Harking back to a tradition beginning in Paris in 1988, Le Dîner en Blanc, began when François Pasquier returned from a long stay abroad and casually gathered a group of his best friends together for a stylish picnic. Today the stylish event has flourished into an international sensation celebrated in over 80 cities across the world, including Paris, New York, London, Sydney and, of course, Newcastle.

Last year, over 1200 guests experienced a beautiful, unforgettable night under the stars in Newcastle, so spread the word amongst your friends and get organised to attend this year’s iteration of Le Dîner en Blanc—it’s shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before!
