Events include a variety of artistic mixes such as street art, plastic art, pyrotechnics, concerts (jazz, lyrical, gospel, contemporary as well as music of the world) together with an opportunity to savour the region’s many wonderful gastronomic delights and specialities.

It wraps up on the evening of the 13th September in Melle (which boasts a  “Triade” of churches) when there will be an evening’s entertainment featuring the Compagnie Envolée Chromatique.
