This August, Edinburgh has a distinctly Québecois flavour as a wide variety of Québec artists will be performing at the Edinburgh Festivals all month long. As a long term partner of the Quebec Government Office in London TV5MONDE is delighted to feature the events and artists on our blog, read on to find out more!

 

Québec returns to the festivals this year with a bang, as 13 artists and companies of artists from Québec will be presenting their work there; established artists and up-and-coming stars in the circus, literature, comedy, contemporary dance/ice skating, theatre and music sectors. All tastes are catered for.
