Reasons to visit Lénault in July

Posted by Rosie

Festivals and Fairs

At the beginning of July we went up to Bayeux for a Medieval Fayre. The town was full of people dressed in traditional costumes, there were exhibitions of cooking, falconry, dance and music and a large area where everyone could play typical medieval games including the chance to have a go at stilt walking!! The town was also turned over to a massive market selling a huge array of goods - most with a link to times gone-by. Unfortunately we had forgotten to take our camera on the day but if you click on this link, there are plenty of photos of the event.

And if the Middle-Ages are not your thing the area is sure to offer something of interest to you. There are simply hundreds of festivals and fairs of all sizes and on all subjects - e.g. photographic exhibitions, free concerts, street theatres, fetes to celebrate local produce, nature events and agricultural/organic shows. This web page gives a taste of things on offer (and it can be translated into English if your French is a bit rusty!!). Of course these are not restricted to July - in fact there are things to do and see here all through the year and there is sure to be something to interest you.
