Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
Preparations are gathering pace for Reminiac’s Summer Fête.
There is to be a tombola this year. A tombola with a difference.
It is a ‘Name the sheep’ tombola. Choose the correct name and you will win a sheep!
The president of the ‘Village Fête Association’ has been busy securing prizes :
First prize – A sheep
Second Prize – 3 Rabbits
Third Prize – 2 chickens
Fourth Prize – 3 baby rabbits
Fifth prize – 5 chicks
I nervously asked the president ‘Would the prizes be alive ?’
‘Mais, bien sûr! ’
Whilst, I want to, at all times, be supportive, I’m not sure if we could look after a sheep….
I have, anyway, bought 20 tombola tickets and I can only hope the sheep isn’t called Pierre or Patrice!!
