It’s been a whole year since the pop of champagne corks and the high kicks of the cancan dancers has graced Earls Court but the France Show is back for 2013, bringing the best of France to London for three action-packed days!

Featuring its biggest French market yet, a property show featuring tempting French pied à terres, bestselling writers such as Kate Mosse and Carol Drinkwater, and top French chefs such as Pascal Aussignac serving up the finest French flavours, it’s a must-visit for anyone who loves the French lifestyle.

Come along and play a game of pétanque while the French accordionist rolls out the tunes, visit the Language Theatre to brush up on your lingo or plan your next trip while dropping by the travel and tourism stands.

The popular wine tasting theatres are back, introducing you to some of the finest French wines around. Let award-winning wine expert Susy Atkins introduce you to some new tipples, or treat yourself to a champagne tasting.

It’s the easiest way to experience the best of France, all under one roof, so come down to Earls Court this weekend and join us for a celebration of all things Gallic. It might be chilly outside but at the France Show you’ll find a warm welcome!

The France Show is on from today to Sunday.
