Week 24 2015


Wow! What a wonderful week of sunny weather.  If you like al fresco dining and live music, you’ll be pleased to hear that the Plage at Castillon next to the stone bridge has re-opened for the summer.  With weekly Thursday evening concerts and Sunday afternoon dancing there’s something for all music lovers.  It’s open now until the end of August, every day from 9h30. Go to the webpage to find out the programme of groups. http://s440478692.siteweb-initial.fr/

But the event not to miss this weekend is in Libourne where they Fete le Vin in the newly renovated Police Academy.  See http://www.libournefetelevin.fr/ for full details.
Whatever you do in the Dordogne and Gironde regions, have a great week.

Best wishes,

13 June 18h : Jimmy’s Hall is showing in VO at La Breche in Ste Foy la Grande.
1932. Jimmy Gralton is back home in the Irish countryside after ten years of forced exile in the USA. His widowed mother Alice is happy, Jimmy's friends are happy, all the young people who enjoy dancing and singing are happy. Which is not the case of Father Sheridan, the local priest, nor of the village squire, nor of Dennis O'Keefe, the chief of the fascists. The reason is simple: Jimmy is a socialist activist. So when the "intruder" reopens the village hall, thus enabling the villagers to gather to sing, dance, paint, study or box, they take a dim view of the whole thing. People who think and unite are difficult to manipulate, aren't they? From that moment on they will use every means possible to get rid of Jimmy and his "dangerous" hall. Starring Barry Ward, Francis Magee and Aileen Henry
