Fête de la Musique 2018

Filed under: Events,Places — Tags: , , — Mary @ 21:34

June 21st is the date for la Fête de la Musique when every town in France resonates to the sound of bands, choirs and dancing. Our line dance club, Country Dreams, plays a part in the events staged in Cluny each year.

It felt like we had been practising for weeks so all went well except for the odd times the concentration slipped, or the feet didn’t slip, that is when they were caught by rough concrete of the Narthex. Here’s a few photos of a super evening -

We danced in the Narthex, the old foundations of the abbey

Christiane and Beatrice smile with relief when it’s all over!

Chris was busy with his camera when we weren’t dancing and took a couple of videos too.

If anybody near Cluny reads this please come and join us. We especially need some more men. There are lots of social occasions besides the dancing and if we can do it anybody can!
