The Diary: Krug Encounters ‘Rhythm and Ride’ by Neneh Cherry

The champagne house whisked a host of VIP guests off to the wilderness for a day of great music, fine food and, of course, world-class wine

Returning for a fourth triumphant year, last week saw champagne house Krug host its annual Krug Encounters event in a secret woodland location just outside London. Following on from last year’s collaboration with Jools Holland, this year’s programme – titled ‘Rhythm and Ride’ – was curated by legendary musician Neneh Cherry and once again combined the best in food, drink and music, all set against the backdrop of a vintage fairground.

World-class performances by London born-and-based singer Cosima, soulful jazz voice Yazmin Lacey from Nottingham, French electronic producer Oklou and, of course, Cherry herself were enjoyed by a host of VIP guests including Laura Jackson, Mathias Le Fevre, Ben Aldridge and Portia Freeman. Attendees were also treated to classic fairground rides, fine dining by the Barbary head chef Daniel Alt and free-flowing fizz from one of Champagne’s most revered maisons.
