WRITINGS ON THE WALL

Apr 1, 2018 - Apr 1, 2019

From the scrawls carved by Nazi soldiers on the eaves of Vincennes to the initials chipped by shipwrecked sailors into La Rochelle’s mighty towers, graffiti is part of the very fabric of France’s monuments. And from April, the Centre des Monuments Nationaux will turn the spotlight on these scribbled mementos, offering an alternative history of the nation’s landmarks and an insight into the lives of the ‘vandals’ who altered them. The Château de Vincennes will lead the charge, charting its…

Chaumont in Bloom

April 24 - October 31

From a slumbering giant ‘feature’ and zen sandpit to a vertical veggie patch and the odd field of freshly-potted parasols, since 1992 the International Garden Festival in Chaumont-sur-Loire has regaled the masses with its zany flights of fancy, jumble of outlandish topiaries and highly-conceptual oases. A self-touted “laboratory for contemporary design”, over the decades the edgy gardens cornucopia on the sprawling grounds of the Château de Chaumont has earned kudos as a breeding ground for creatives and green-fingered mavericks –…

The Vallauris Years

June 23 @ 8:00 am - October 22 @ 5:00 pm

Picasso's stay in Vallauris heralded a new era of blissful experimentation and unbridled creativity, free at last from the shadow of war. In Picasso's Vallauris Years, the Musée National Pablo Picasso lifts the veil on this key stage in his artistic growth. June 23 to October 22, 2018.

HAIL TO DEBORAH

Mar 1, 2019

She broke through the Germans’ supposedly impenetrable Hindenburg Line during the Battle of Cambrai only to be summarily buried after WW1. Now, after being unearthed by a local hotelier some 19 years ago, Deborah – one of the last surviving Mark IV tanks – has been unveiled as the centrepiece of the new Cambrai Tank 1917 museum in Flesquières. Come and pay your respects to the hefty Iron Lady who hastened the end of trench warfare. www.tourisme-nordpasdecalais.fr
