what’s new to go out this summer in Périgueux?

1 A castle at the museum


The City of Périgueux has established a partnership with the Château de Puymartin, in Marquay (here the owner Marie-Sophie Rouchon alongside the mayor Delphine Labail).

Black Périgord is available in White Périgord and Périgueux. After the gardens of Eyrignac (where a “white picnic” will take place again this year at the Vesunna museum site, Tuesday July 2), an unprecedented partnership will allow the team from the Château de Puymartin, in Marquay, to offer its immersive show at the Périgord Museum of Art and Archeology (Maap), Friday July 5.

Visitors “of all ages”, specifies the owner Marie-Sophie Rouchon, who came to present this animation, will be able to follow the Marquise de Puymartin and around ten actors in the rooms, from sketch to sketch, to try to solve a riddle. Five sessions are planned from 7:30 p.m. It will be free, but you must book at 05 53 06 40 70. The icing on the cake, the former starred chef Vincent Lucas, who works with Puymartin, will offer a “gourmet break” (between 15 and 18 euros).

2 Let There Be Rock, avec Some Produkt

On the rhythm side, in addition to Sinfonia, we will find the musical-fun day of Sans Réserve, Dedans Dehors, Sunday July 7, Macadam jazz from July 23 to August 6, the concerts of Musiques de La Nouvelle-Orléans en Périgord, MNOP (the 15th, July 22 and 24)… The Some Produkt association will offer, in association with the City, a new free program “to immerse yourself in rock culture”. Its name: Let There Be Rock (which will remind connoisseurs of the title of an ACDC song). On the bill for three concerts, all scheduled for 9 p.m.: the blues of Lonesome Shack, Friday July 26 in the square of the Saint-Martin church, the afro punk trio EPIQ, Friday August 2 at place du 8-Mai-45 , and the guitars of Howlin’Jaws, Friday August 23 at the Moulin du Rousseau.

3 A little more summer on the quays

Périgueux in beach mode, it’s still the state of mind of A Summer on the Quays. The 2024 vintage will be entitled to a slightly extended format, from Sunday July 14 to Sunday August 25, every day from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. At the foot of the cathedral, between the Barris and Saint-Georges bridges, we will find the relaxation area and its deckchairs, aquatic activities on the Isle (pedal boat, kayak, canoe, paddle) and sports (table football, pétanque , beach volleyball, table tennis), the continuous catering offer and different offerings every morning (yoga, musical awakening, gentle gym, etc.). Without forgetting around fifteen concerts in the evening.
