Like many Brits, retired Lieutenant Colonel, engineer, and chef, Dick, and his entrepreneur and designer wife, Angel, had long dreamed of living in France. But where others might settle for a modest bolthole in the French countryside, the Strawbridge’s fell in love with a 19th-century fairy-tale chateau, complete with 45 rooms, seven outbuildings, 12 acres of land and its own moat. 

Millions of viewers have been captivated by their incredible journey on Channel 4’s Escape to the Chateau, but that first year at the Château de la Motte Husson was only partially documented. Now, it has been captured in exquisite detail for their debut book, A Year at The Chateau – a truly irresistible story of adventure and heart, epic ambitions and a huge amount of hard graft.

In this exclusive live stream, we’ll hear about rural life in France, the charming characters, delicious food, and extraordinary tales of the renovations and restorations Dick and Angel completed, many of which were not shown on TV. There’s also the opportunity to ask your own searching questions, whether you too are transforming a derelict castle on a shoestring budget, or simply want to know more about their adventure of a lifetime.

So, join us for this very special conversation with the charismatic duo as they share their enchanting love story and reveal their remarkable journey in full for the first time.
