VAT triangulation on services?!

I have a situation where a UK Supplier is invoicing a UK Customer for admission to an event which will take place in France.  The complication is that the event is entirely subcontracted to a French company.  The French Co has confirmed that it will charge French VAT on the invoice to UK Supplier (since the place of supply for admission to an event in where the event place - France).  The question is, when the UK supplier invoices the UK customer, where is the place of supply?  Since they are charging for admission to an event, should they also be charging French VAT?  Or does the fact that it is subcontracted mean that they can charge UK VAT instead?  I'm confused!
