Famous faces improbably took to a Stratford rooftop for a round of French-style Boules this week.

Model Donna Air was joined by the likes of Game of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel and Made In Chelsea favourites Lucy Watson and James Dunmore to celebrate the opening of pop-up pétanque club Boulers at Roof East on Wednesday.

Organised by Orangina, the popular Mediterranean craze (where players take turns to throw balls as close to a jack as possible, similar to bowls) is being given a London twist as the capital embraces the final days of summer.

Groups of two to six people can reserve a “terrain” to play on now until September 2. To book, visit boulers.co.uk with a 30-minute sessions costing £15. Tickers are also available on the door for £20.
