On Friday July 8, on the Place de la République in Gagnac-sur-Garonne, from 4.30 p.m., the library will offer “Partir en livre” with reading workshops, manual activities and various demonstrations, before leaving the place at the open-air market.
In addition, Boudu La Jongle is soon returning to the commune. Thus, from Friday July 8 to Sunday July 10, the Catcharry area will become an ephemeral circus village where jugglers from all over France, professional and amateur artists and many families from the surrounding area will meet.
The philosophy of the event is twofold: on the one hand to blur the lines between amateur and professional practice, on the other hand to bring about a meeting between ordinary people and people with disabilities… all in a festive atmosphere!
Entertainment with children
This festival will be an opportunity to admire the prowess of juggling, balance, aerial and magic artists. We will laugh at the adventures of the clowns and we will dance all evening during the concerts. But above all, young and old alike will be able to try out the practice of circus arts thanks to numerous initiation workshops and first rides on the big steering wheel.
Before opening to the general public, artistic actions will be carried out with the children of the town of Gagnac.
