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


The "Blanc Buisson" Festival will take place on 5th, 6th, 12th and 13th of June next. The 2009 edition of the medieval Blanc Buisson sound and light festival will allow both young and old to discover 700 years of history of the Ouche Region, as seen from the world of cinema. From the middle ages to the third millennium, this grand living panorama traces the history of the Blanc Buisson castle and its region by reliving the major events that took place in around this feudal castle that was built during the reign of King Philippe le Bel, in 1290. 150 actors and volunteer organisers have contributed a lot of energy and enthusiasm to ensure that this new edition of the festival is a success which has required no less than 13 600 hours preparation. Once again, Jacques Weber will narrate the festival.

This interactive show mixes dreams with reality, large scale living scenes and small intimate dialogues that has already been appreciated by more than 10 000 spectators, which makes the Blanc Buisson festival, without a doubt, one of the major events of the summer season in Normandy. It is for this reason that Alis deemed it important to participate once again in this event by being a partner for this unique festival. This partnership shows yet again our intention of actively participating in the tourist and cultural development of Normandy.
