The poster shows a birds-eye view of the new sunken gallery at the innovative art-centre and vineyard.

Sanary is one of the most beautiful coastal villages and its International Rosé Festival promises to make it even more stylish next weekend.

 

Take a look at some of the images from previous years… 

This year, it is running over 3 days:  10-12th May, 10-18:00hrs each day.  There will be 71 exhibitors, promoting their rosés and 80,000 people are expected at this open-air event. The all-important ‘kit de dégustation’ including a branded wine-glass for tastings will be 10 euros, valid for all three days.

There will be music, guided history walks and trips around the bay on the celebrated multi-coloured pointus. To add to the fun this year will be ‘un parcours arty’ with 12 artists doing live street art.

What an absolutely fabulous way to spend a day!

Next Sunday (May 5th) sees another in the popular series of National Theatre rebroadcasts in Aix’s five star Renaissance Hotel.

All About Eve was filmed live from London’s Noel Coward Theatre.  As The Guardian said, it is a “show that reeks of chic”.

“Adapted and directed by the Belgian wizard, Ivo van Hove, from the 1950 classic film by Joseph Mankiewicz and starring Gillian Anderson (X-Files, A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again), All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing, the Legend and True Star of the theatre.  The spotlight is hers, always has been.  But now there’s Eve.  Her biggest fan.  Young, beautiful Eve.  The golden girl, the girl next door.  But you know all about Eve… don’t you?”

Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world’s most innovative theatre directors, mixes live action and film and asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity  never seems to get old.
Tickets for the 14:30 showing can be purchased on line at https://www.weezevent.com/all-about-eve
