Things to do in Paris for everyone
Where? The Pompidou centre, Place Georges Pompidou, Paris 4th When? June 21-October 23 2017 After celebrating his 80th birthday at the Tate Modern and before continuing on with the party at New York’s MET, the English artist is coming to the Pompidou centre. This will be an important retrospective of his original work, coming nearly 20 years after his first Paris debut at the Pompidou.
Invalides aux nuit
From July 6 to September 2, 2017, the facades of the interior of Invalides light up to tell the story of Paris's vivid and colourful history. The fifth edition of this summer time festivity promises to be no less spectacular. Using the latest in modern technology, the show produced by Amaclio Productions and created by Bruno Seillier, is sure to deliver an incomparable multi-sensory experience. Utilising the full extent of Invalides's majesty, the 180-degree projection covers over 250 metres of the building's facade - for an even more immersive event. Invalides aux Nuit holds events in English on Monday and Thursday nights, meaning English-speakers can fully appreciate the story told behind the pictures. We advise that if you don't by a seated ticket, you should bring something to protect your derrière...those historic cobbles can get a bit uncomfortable! Check out a video of last year's event for a flavour of what you're in for.
