The latest in the series of ‘Les Dimanches de la Canebiere’ takes place  on Sunday.  These events have been created to bring people back to the town centre and seem to be getting more and more popular.  This time, there will be an Egyptian brunch at Nour d’Egypte while Toinou are offering Plancha de la Mer et Aioli on their terrace – Mediterranean feasts!  Lots of activities for the family too – dance, music, games, market – here’s the press release: Présentation-prog-juin-site-mairie-1-7

Le Chat Qui Tricote is a brand new salon du thé/knitting craft centre which has opened to the delight of local aficionados.  Now they have somewhere to buy wool, yarns and all the accessories they need.  But if you can’t knit and want to learn, their series of workshops starts tomorrow (Saturday April 8th) with their ‘Initiation au Tricot’.

Children are not forgotten – on the 12th, there is a session making Easter baskets – and Thursday night is Knitting Night for all (18:30-22:00hrs).

The menu looks good – it includes quiches, cakes (French-style), soups and pâtisseries gourmands, all fait maison.

The centre is at 28 rue Constantin, Aix; full details are here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/lechatquitricote/about/?ref=page_internal

To attract visitors back to frequenting – and spending money – in centre ville, the mayors of the 1st and 7th arrondissements have devised a programme of entertainments in a pedestrianised Canebiere on the last Sunday of each month, a great idea.  I reported on our visit in January here: https://aixcentric.com/2017/01/24/marseille-surprises-on-sunday/

This coming Sunday, March 26th, the event will have ‘Musique’ as the theme. (more…)
