Week 23 2016

Do you know that the Battle of Castillon in returning to the 7 hectare stage this summer.  After a year away, the new and improved Battle is back!  Still at the same site, on the hills of Belves, behind Castillon, the Battle has had a makeover. There are still over 400 volunteers performing, and horses, hounds, geese and goats still play their part. 

The format has changed.  There’s only one act lasting an hour and a half.  Eric le Collen is still directing and the French and English are still at war… who will win? 

If you want tickets (and you really should support this event please!), or if you’d like to volunteer and be part of the Battle which runs from July 15th – August 20th, visit the website or drop into the office which is currently above the Tourist Office in Castillon.  (Even the Battle Office is having a makeover)

It’s an amazing show for such a small town, if you’ve never been, this is the year to go!

Whatever you do this week in the Gironde and Dordogne Regions, have a great week.

Best wishes,
