Bayeux - Award

Bayeux Calvados-Normandy Award of War Correspondents

The exhibitions last until 3 November !

 

From 7 to 13 October, Bayeux is welcoming the 26th Bayeux-Calvados Award for war correspondents.

 

It represents a tribute to the work carried out all year long by reporters and an opportunity to meet and interact with the general public. During the week, debates, exhibitions and forums thus offer a key to deciphering news events through the keen eye of these journalists who cover the upheavals of the planet.

Bayeux - Show

2019’s Events ! William’s Cathedral, the show !

During Christmas period, discover the projections of "William's Cathedral" ! Until January 4th, admire the Bayeux Tapestry coming back  in the Cathedral thanks to a digital and immersive experience ...

 

Inside the majestic Bayeux cathedral, the entire work, inscribed since 2007 in the UNESCO Memory of the World register, is displayed on the ephemeral screens, specially installed by the teams of Spectaculaires, Allumeurs d'images.

At the same time, the architecture and choir of the Cathedral are enhanced by a precise and dynamic play of lights.

 

Commissioned by Odon de Conteville, bishop of Bayeux and half-brother of William the Conqueror, the thousand-year-old embroidery thus virtually finds its first jewel: the nave of the cathedral, where it was exhibited for the first time in July 1077.
