Major Events in Normandy in September 2023
1. American Film Festival at Deauville: 1st-10th September 2023
This film festival is one of the most prestigious film events in the world and for 10 days, the best of Hollywood descend on this Normandy coastal town. During the event around 60 films will shown in 3 venues.
Why not head on over and see which star you might spot.
Do you have a Hollywood star you'd really love to meet?
2. Les Journées Européeenes du Patrimoine: 16th-17th September2023
This France-wide cultural event sees hundreds of historical monuments open to the public with an army of volunteers on hand to bring their heritage alive. Many of those taking part are not open to the public for the rest of the year so it's a great opportunity to find out more about local heritage. It is through this event that we discovered there is an old priory near to the gite with rare fortified garden in its grounds.
