The Candies would be the first to admit that we get to sing at some pretty amazing venues; and today Chateau Labro was no exception. We were heading about 3 hours south east, to the little village of Onet-Le-Chateau... but our destination wasn’t the ancient and magnificent castle the dominates the village… but  a few kilometres further on at Chateau de Labro.   This fabulous [...]
