Musings on life in Lodeve, Languedoc

More Lodeve night life

Posted by celiahukins on 20/07/2010

Now that Summer is here Lodève becomes a different place, the cafés and restaurants full of people, the Petit Sommelier taking up more and more of the Place de la République. So night life means a lot more than the occasional events such as processions for St Fulcran which I’ve written about before.
A new initiative this year is the Nocturnes de Lodève on Tuesday evenings; the art gallery is open until 10 pm, the Marché du Terroir continues until late. For the first of the Nocturnes we went to Le Minuscule. It’s nearly 3 years since Gisela opened her café. I went there not long after it first opened and have been going there from time to time ever since. The star of the evening was Jeanne Santos, a Minuscule regular who had just returned to Lodève. Unfortunately I couldn’t get my camera to work for her and only managed a picture of an accordionist who passed by when Jeanne had finished. His rendition of Auld Lang Syne was not appreciated. Gisela has a programme for the rest of the summer; unfortunately I won’t be there.

Of course Lodève is very busy at the moment with the poetry festival, but as usual for July I’m in the UK.
