OCTOBER 28 and 29: Samhain at the Château!
Immerse yourself in the traditions of the Highlands!
This pagan festival, the ancestor of Halloween, represented, especially for rural populations, the transition from the bright season (summer) to the dark season (winter).
This year, the Saor Alba historical reconstruction association is back for its third edition, taking you back to 18th-century Scotland. Traditional dances and music, duels, discovery of kits and tartans, crafts, shadow theatre and sketches… There’s plenty to keep young and old alike entertained along the way.
On Saturday evening, the traditional Samhain parade will amaze you with a bonfire, a great farandole and fire juggling as night falls…
Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 October, 10.30am to 7pm. Refreshments and snacks on site.
Prices: adults €12, children €6, children under 4 free. Reduced rate €10 (students, PRM, jobseekers).
From 21 OCTOBER to 5 NOVEMBER: Fantastic exhibition
For the duration of the holidays, the tour circuit will be enriched by the artworks of young artist Erwan Durozoi.
With his drawings inspired by fantasy and role-playing games, he imagines trolls, witches, fairies and magical creatures invading every room of the castle.
Wander through these fantastic illustrations and look out for the mischievous little fairies Erwan has hidden there! Can you find them all?
A fun exhibition to discover as part of your regular tour!
