AT A GLANCE Summer 2020


1st August - 31st August

Around the region Summer 2020

As we all start to venture out again after months of confinement, we are tentatively starting to once again compile a list of what’s on across the region, although it will definitely take a while for anything to feel normal again!

Now more than ever, local business and events need your support so if you feel it is appropriate for you, why not head out and see what the P-O have to offer this summer?

Most of the bigger events have had to cancel this year but many other smaller venues will be able to host an exciting range of cultural delights.

Don’t forget to look at our separate terroir, vide grenier and night market guides too.

If you hear of anything, large or small, please let us know laura@anglophone-direct.com and we will happily relay the information.
