Between Perche and Beauce, an evening during the Renaissance period at the Château de Villebon, an invitation for the spectator to drink at the great fountain of French Letters. As part of the 500th Anniversary of the Renaissance in the Centre-Val de Loire region, the Friends of Remy Belleau and the Madrigal du Perche invite you to Villebon, an unchanged setting since the 16th century, for a series of concerts and shows followed by an "animated" Renaissance Banquet,.
6pm: welcome to the Château de Villebon on the banks of the Perche (site labelled 500 Years of the Renaissance): an evening show designed as a moment of freedom where a jousting, daring, truculent and funny French language will shine through
About 240 spectators, divided into 3 groups to attend the 3 concomitant shows/animations/concerts (20 mn each). Actors and singers in Renaissance costumes.
The poet of the Pléiade Nogentais, Remy Belleau, will be honoured. So is local history.
