DEAUVILLE
Books & Music Festival
April 13 > 15
In 2018, the Books & Music Festival celebrates its 15th birthday! Being 15 means adolescence, the age of everything-is-possible, dreams, metamorphosis. It is the time of dissent, the time of protest. And artists, writers, musicians play an important role in the art of revolt. It is to this aesthetic and subjective fresco that the festival will echo, by putting the spotlight on literature and music of dissent. It also reminds that 50 years have passed from the events of May ‘68.

Les Médiévales de Touques
June
On the occasion of its medieval festivals, Touques plunges back into the atmosphere of the time when the city had a very active commercial port protected by a fortified castle which was one of the main homes of the Dukes of Normandy. Touques was the second metropolis of the Pays d'Auge. Besides, William the Conqueror, King of England at the time, came here to inspect his Norman duchy.
