Walking tour

The colours of the evening (fully booked)

As day turns to night and the sun dips below the horizon, a growing number of illuminated signs bathe the streets in light, while the light displays erected for the festive season are testament to their designers’ boundless creativity. What is the story behind all these lights? When did they begin taking over our cityscapes and, more recently, our countryside too? What are the most popular colours? Do we really need them? How are they made? Their environmental impact is attracting ever more attention, but can we really get by with fewer lights, or even none at all? These are just some of the points that will be raised on this colourful, illuminating evening walk.

In French only.
