Come along to our inaugural Quatre Saisons* cultural presentation and have your mind blown by the sheer beauty of the Fête des Lumières* in Lyon. The gastronomic capital of France attracted 1.8 million visitors to the 2017 édition* after having been cancelled in the wake of the 2015 terrorist attacks. So this outstanding event is certainly back, but what do you know of its genesis as a spontaneous reaction by the citizens of Lyon to a combination of poor weather, religious idolatry and the (in)famous French administration? Come along to find out!

The presentation will be followed by a light lunch, avec du vin, bien sûr*, giving you the chance to relax, chat to your fellow culture-lovers and dream of attending the next one.
