Join us on this fabulous weekend break to the lovely Medieval French town of Montreuil , featuring a live performance of Les Miserables
The charming medieval walled town of Montreuilsur Mer is a perfect destination for a weekend away, with its beautiful old houses and churches, its imposing ramparts and its cobbled streets - not to mention a good selection of restaurants and bars.
On selected summer evenings, the sleepy town of Montreuil comes alive with a live performance of Les Miserables . This sound and light show has over 500 cast members who endorse the costumes of their ancestors and those of the characters in the novel . Students and doctors, civil servants and retirees … you’ll find them all amongst the hundreds of volunteers from Montreuil-sur-Mer and beyond, who get involved each summer with a sound and light show inspired by the novel Les Misérables and directed by Dominique Martens. The imposing citadel has been the atmospheric backdrop to the legendary characters of Jean Valjean and Cosette, Thénardier and Javert since 1996, and all because Victor Hugo visited the town one day for lunch back in 1837.
On September 4th 1837, Victor Hugo stopped off in the charming town of Montreuil-sur-Mer to walk the ramparts and sit down to a relaxing lunch. He made a sketch of the fonts in the abbey and then set off again for Paris, but this fleeting visit left a lasting impression on him. Twenty-five years later, the small town near Le Touquet became a key location in the most famous novel of 19th century French literature.
Expect cavalry, fireworks, music & dance in this great spectacular!
