Because you’re bound to be moved by emotion. You’ll smile, quiver, quake, tremble and dance! Imagine words that ring home, triggering feelings of joy, sadness, melancholy, nostalgia, excitement and perhaps even a touch of irritation.
… to the fervour…
The atmosphere is electric but in the charged sense! Between amusing word play and heated exchanges, open up your eyes and ears and enjoy the show.
…of the festivities!
Because Dinan-Cap Fréhel is home to a host of festivals and events focusing on music (classical, jazz, contemporary), mediaeval times, comedy, fashion and sport. You’ll be sure to find something to please everyone!
Travel back to the Middle Ages at the Fête des Remparts in Dinan! Every two years, you can dress up as a knight or princess and join in the festivities! Come and experience a “Thousand Years of History” during the 2018 edition. The time travel continues with the Médiévales du Fort La Latte in Plévenon, the iconic site where the famous The Vikings film was shot starring Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis.
If you are into jazz, wait no longer! Head to Saint-Cast-Le Guildo for Un air de Jazz, Sables d’Or les Pins for A L’est des Dunes or Dinan in late August for Jazz en Place. If you love contemporary music, it is showcased at Bobital’s Festival Armor à sons, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
And because it is important to laugh in life, there is plenty in the way of comedy here too! Thanks to the Théâtre pour rire in Matignon, Les Esclaffades in Saint Hélen (where street art and life-size games take over the town) and Renc’Art Sous les Remparts for young and old alike (outdoor theatre, dance and circus acts), you’re guaranteed a laugh so open your eyes (and ears) wide and chuckle away.
Dinan-Cap Fréhel is also very trendy and plays host to the International Young Fashion Designer festival, which takes place in Dinan. Creativity spills out onto the cobbled streets for the occasion with several open-air fashion shows.
Sport is also celebrated with various regattas, nautical jousts and even the Estivales de Volley tournament, held between Sables d’Or Les Pins and Saint-Cast-Le Guildo.
There is so much to choose from so come and let yourself be drawn into the fun!
