This story begins with 2 new friends. Both moved to the small community around the same time a couple of years ago. One is English the other is the owner of the Château and is very French. They got on well and came up with the idea of developing a twist on the wonderful Goodwood Revival.
The English friend felt the Château reminded her of a childhood film - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang - and so the name for the festival was created.Together th formed an association of members to help out.
It was a risky thing to do to organise this kind of festival during a pandemic. Where many have simply given up or rescheduled agendas. Château le Brossay ,Renac continued to develop and it has paid off.
