From July 7 to 16, Les Portes du Coglais host the sound and light show imagined by the association Mets toi en scène, Terres d’Histoire. An adventure you can experience. Terres d’Histoire will tell the story of three towns that became one in 2017. Cogles, La Selle-en-Coglès, and Montours were three neighboring lands and now form Les Portes du Coglais. There will first be the arrival of the Vikings, then the imagined passage of Anne of Brittany in Coglais (15C), the rise of the flax industry in the 16C, the ravages of epidemics (dysentery). An obligatory stage also during the French revolution, with La Rouërie (Armand Tuffin see post) ,and the Breton Conjuration, a hidden Mass and a battle in the wood of Gastines… The show will begin around 22h30, But it will be preceded at 21h30, to wait, by the tribulations of Foubon, a medieval character imagined by Xavier Monvil. Medieval pranks from the 12-13C, a Viking wedding with an attack, ancient dances , music with the band Waraok , and an arts and crafts market.

Enter the hemispherical room of the Planetarium, and immerse yourself in these billions of unknown worlds, of inconceivable distances and durations! 3D shows projected onto a 360° dome immerse you in the vastness of space. Throughout the year, the Planétarium de Bretagne invites you to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo missions and the first steps on the Moon: film screenings, conferences, festive evenings or retrospectives, there is something for everyone. Come and take your first step at the Planetarium! the town of Pleumeur-Bodou, and more particularly a site near the Radôme, has been chosen to host the Planetarium. In June 1988, the Pleumeur-Bodou Planetarium was inaugurated. With its 20 meters in diameter, it was then the largest planetarium in France. It is equipped with a “Zeiss” planetary gear.

In this place in Lizio (56) , there is poetry in the ball bearings, magic in the metallic screeches. It took Robert Coudray twenty years to bring this extremely moving museum to life.

Allow a good two hours to see the 80 animated sculptures, automatons, kinetic machines, musical fountains, and other wind totems. Take the opportunity to visit the eco-lodge, also designed by Robert Coudray, the scrap metal poet, and take a detour to the village of character of Lizio. Webpage: https://www.poeteferrailleur.com/
