Lamalou-Les-Bains Mairie needs help from you

LanguedocLiving, Jun 27

Some of you may have been to the famous Festival d’Opérettes in Lamalou-Les-Bains, l’Herault. After a bit of a fallow period for the town following the devastating floods, and various political scandals with previous mayors, the new mayor is regenerating the town. He has resurrected the Festival this year, and has found a partner to open up the dusty Casino to bring it back to its former glory.

So, the good news is that the Festival is on again this year, from 29th July to the 26th August. The bad news is that a lot of the musicians and performers can’t find places to stay on a budget.

The Mairie have asked us to see if anyone wants to house a musician or a group of musicians for a few days for free. Some of them have tents or temporary accommodation, and are simply looking for a bit of land with access to a bathroom or water, others would be very grateful for a comfortable bed for a night or two. Many of them are appearing for just a few days at a time, so it’s not the entire period of the Festival.

If you think you can help, please get in touch with the events organisier Lise Vidal on 04 67 95 63 07 or, or let us know and we can pass on your details.

Lise asked me to tell you that she would be very grateful for any help. Every effort counts, however small.
