Events at the Château

Château de Gizeux is full of life and always teeming with projects! Find out all about our latest news and events, theme days, concerts, exhibitions and artists’ encounters throughout the year.

From 8 June to 8 August: exhibition of paintings and photos

Come and discover the new temporary exhibition from 8 June to 8 August 2024! Using a combination of photography and painting, brothers Jean-François and Patrice Naturel have redecorated the château’s dining room, outbuildings and summer rooms. The exhibition preview will take place on Saturday 15 June from 5pm, when you can chat with the artists during a guided tour, followed by a drink.

Patrice Naturel has been painting for more than 30 years, and his first exhibition in Gizeux was held in 2003. In 2024, armed with a wealth of experience and a singular personal technique, he returned as a duo with his older brother and proposed two highly up-to-date themes: The earth is close to us and Taking care.

Initially a photographer by trade, Jean-François Naturel has developed documentary photography, focusing on architecture and urban planning. In 2022, he became an author-photographer with the Maison des Artistes, and unveiled a much more personal approach: making reality a little less ordinary.

Exhibition accessible on the château’s visitor trail, from 8 June to 8 August 2024. Vernissage Saturday 15 June at 5pm.

Sunday 30 June from 10am to 6pm: Festival Brass Band du Bourgueillois (BBB)

The 11th BBB Festival returns to Château de Gizeux!

On Sunday 30 June, from 10am to 6pm, come and enjoy free concerts in the château grounds.

Organised by the Brass Band du Pays Bourgueillois, the BBB festival is based on the desire to promote a particular musical style in a convivial atmosphere. Each year, a gala evening and a day of free concerts are held in a different commune in the Bourgueil region. A host of French and European bands have already taken part in this festive event!

Access to the concerts is free. Food and refreshments on site.

Save the château chapel!

This winter, help protect France’s heritage and become a patron of the Château de Gizeux by contributing to the crowdfunding campaign for the chapel and its decor!

The Credofunding platform is hosting this campaign to help finance the major structural and roofing work.

Bonus: if you pay tax in France, your donation can be deducted from your tax bill! Further information is available from the association La Demeure Historique, which is supporting us.

It’s a collective project that’s both rewarding and meaningful for all lovers of old buildings!
