Once a year, the local commune’s Fest-Noz (Breton
for ‘Festival of the Night’) takes place on the Chapel grounds. Planned for the 13th July
2019 (on more than one occasion the date has been changed last minute or the event cancelled).
These traditional festivals were used as a way to batter down the bare earth for a new house. Today
they are held with dancing, dancing and more dancing where anyone can join in. A not to be missed event
for young and old alike. Live, traditional Celtic Breton music is played into the small hours with Crepes,
Galettes, Hot dogs and drink on offer. Entry is about 8 euros for adults, less for children, with proceeds
going towards the chapel fund.

I couldn’t resist including
this classic photo.Not a shot from this Fest-Noz but yes, they do jump in the air.
Up to 500 plus people emerge from the wilderness.Local cider is on offer as well as wine,
beer and soft or hot drinks. Typical Breton dancing.No matter how hard you resist
you will partake.
Be very careful what you drink or you could end up looking like this.
