Saturday, July 19


Some kids were frightened, others were giggling, all were enthusiastically shouting back at the puppets.

I highly recommend this Guignol Puppet show, on the beach near the port of Pornichet. It is a small theatre owned by an old lady who could be your own grandma. Half an hour before the show starts, she walks down the beach ringing the Guignol bell to draw the crowd to the theatre. And then she goes playing at least 3 different characters, assisted by her grandchildren.

When the show ends, the old lady invits the kids to shake Guignol's hand.

Guignol, Pornichet - everyday at 6.30pm ; 2 euros.
