Motors & Soul festival is hosted in the grounds of Château de Neuville in Gambais, France. Located 30 miles west of Paris, the Château dates back to the 16th Century and once a year it welcomes vintage lovers to enjoy its impressive surroundings.

We’ve been aware of this retro carnival for a couple of years now as UK based Barber Matt Robinson, proprietor of Mister Robsinsons Barbershop in Rugby, runs a pop-up at the event. So, when we happened to be in Paris to visit the MCB Expo that weekend, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to hitch a ride to see what Motors & Soul was all about.

Bikes. Blues. Burritos. And a whole lot more.
