Son Et Lumière Show in Bayeux

Published on November 30, 2018 by Chris Robinson

Throughout December and into early January 2019 two of Bayeux's most iconic tourist attractions will be combined in one stunning spectacle. The Bayeux Cathedral will host a 'son et lumière' show (light and sound) featuring projections of the tapestry onto the cathedral walls. An historical narrative will also form part of the show. Between 1st and 22nd December, it will take place every Saturday evening with sessions at 6pm, 6.30pm, 7pm, 7.30pm and 8pm. From 26th December through to 5th January shows are each Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. The session times remain the same and each performance is limited to 200 people. This is the third year that this event has taken places and it's free to attend. For those of you visiting Normandy over the Christmas and New period, this is a unique event to attend.

Meet The Author
Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
