The "Blanc Buisson" Festival: 7 centuries of history in the Ouches Region


On 23rd May 2008, at 10:30 pm, the first presentation of the "Blanc Buisson" Festival will take place to be followed by further shows that will run for 3 consecutive Fridays and Saturday. The festival will allow the public to discover the history of this admired feudal stronghold, the origins of which date back to the end of the 13th century. An impressive light & sound show relives the significant adventurous events of this former stronghold.

150 participants trained by 7 professionals, 6 months rehearsing, 1000 hours of work spent on costume making, requiring 200 m of cloth, an additional 800 hours to make the set and accessories; the new production for 2008 promises to be a particular success, all the more so as it is Jaques Weber in person that will narrate this major living historical panorama.

With an expected 1000 spectators each evening, the "Blanc Buisson" Festival is certainly one of the major attractions of the summer season in Normandy: It is for this reason that Alis deemed it important to participate in this event by being a partner for this 2008 edition. This partnership offered by the A28 motorway concession holder shows yet again its intention to actively participate in the development of the Region's tourist and cultural attractions.
