Le programme

We have your little ones covered with plenty of fun and creative activities over the weekend! 
Reserve your place now for one of our magic shows or for our polymer clay, badge making, or cake decorating workshops. Transformed yourself for the day with face painting and hair braiding, have fun at the game of ‘pêche à la ligne’ (fishing game) and visit our balloon twister extraordinaire who will be working hard on fabulous creations.

For those young at heart, there will also be plenty to do! 
Stroll around the market and find that impressive Xmas pressie, try out one of our free French language trial classes, and attend our free cocktail or éclair patisserie demonstrations or our masterclass that will take you on a captivating journey to the world of Armagnac versus Whisky. And bien sûr, take the time to relax and sit down to some delicious French food and wine just after you’ve had your photo taken at our photo booth!
