    Feathered acts highlighted by the latest technologies (video mapping or laser) at Cabaret Ovation®, a warm and intimate revue that gives pride of place to transformism at Chez Nello, La Belle Vie or glamour, rhinestones and music-hall tableaux at Cabaret Extravagance - the choice is yours!

  • Dance, listen and let off steam

    Aficionados of live concerts and DJ sets will find what they're looking for in the bars and concert halls. If you're into jazz, head for Le Strapontin or Le Petit Faucheux.
    If you're into classical and baroque music, you'll love the velvet seats at the Opéra de Tours or the Salle Jean Ockeghem. If you want to discover sounds from elsewhere, and for electro fans, go and tap your toes at the Citizen or the Red Club (Notre-Dame-D'Oé). Are you a lover of all styles? Take a look at the programme at Bateau Ivre, Temps Machine (Joué-lès-Tours) or the bars Le Balkanic, Le Quartier, le Cubrik... there's plenty on offer!

  • Bal Renaissance à l'Hôtel de Ville de Tours

    Enter the dance at the "Bal Renaissance" at the Hôtel de Ville

    In a setting adorned with gilded mouldings and paintings by François Schommer, you'll be able to "esbaudir joyeusement" as in the days of the Renaissance, to baroque music.
    Don't know how to dance bransles, tourdions, gaillardes or pavanes? Students from the Renaissance dance class will introduce you. Costumes will be available on site. A trip back in time guaranteed!

    Saturday 3 February at 9.00pm at Tours Town Hall
    No reservation required, tickets on sale at the venue €12 per person.
