You don’t have to head as far as big cities like Geneva or Lyon to get your fill of culture (though there is certainly much culture to be had there too!).
Head to Sallanches’ Salle Léon Curral for some excellent (and very reasonably priced!) entertainment. Here you will find concerts (recent concerts have included: Ayo, Irma, L.E.J, Camille), theatre, comedy, dance, circus acts . . . Recently renovated, and with a spectacular glimpse of the Warens behind, it always feels like such a pleasure to be enjoying culture in such a beautiful setting . . . and so close to home!
The amazing Petits Asticots festival for children, that arrives every Toussaint holiday to keep us all sane, hosts some of its events here.
As a family, we have enjoyed some excellent plays and concerts from CULTUR(R)AL’s diverse events list (and we have also had some “parents only” nights out here, thanks to babysitters!).
The venue also hosts events like:
- the Foire Froide the last weekend in October;
- the Salon des Créateurs in September;
- various school concerts;
