Chinon: Le Marché Médiéval – Saturday 7th August 2010

The Vienne, Chinon and its château

After months of discussions and uncertainty, Chinon's well-known annual medieval market will be happening again this year on Saturday 7th August. More details when I have them.

Read about the decision to go ahead in La Nouvelle République

Please note that when I first posted I thought the Marché was 31st July 2010. It is a week later: 7th August. My apologies.
