Something for the weekend...bygone days.

As part of "Chaumussay remembers" this year the village has chosen to remember the war years  WWI (1914-1918) & WWII (1939-1945).through exhibitions, at various venues,of material put together by local residents.

There is a lot of war history connected to this part of Southern Touraine, For example the control of the demarcation line between occupied and 'free France' went through the village, from June 30 to December 15, 1940, before being moved to Descartes. Through the exhibitions will be able to see how local life was affected. Starts at 10.00am.

In the evening (8.30) you will be treated to a free concert of  'songs from between the wars'
