Marseilles becomes in 2013 the European Capital of Culture!
The Music Hall is a part of French culture as well as the world business card of Paris. It is in the Music Hall of Marseilles that the greatest French artists, the richness of our heritage, tried their luck: Amount, Bourvil, Fernandel, Tino Rossi, Maurice Chevalier, Johnny Hallyday, Claude Francois etc...
The versatility of their talents have always moved.
In fact, at that time Marseilles was a "test city" for artists as the Marseilles public was known as the most demanding in France. If the show went well in Marseilles producers could start the tour throughout France with confidence ... But if the show did not appeal, the producers would not take any chances.

With more than 2 million visitors over 10 years, La Cité de la Mer, located in the Transatlantic Passenger Terminal in Cherbourg, is entering into a new phase of its development. After Man’s adventure under the sea (17 aquariums including the deepest in Europe), the submarine Le Redoutable and the Gallery of Men and Machines, this new chapter will remind us of Cherbourg’s past as an important transatlantic port and bring back memories of the legendary liner the Titanic, 100 years on.
On April 10th 1912, Cherbourg hosted the Titanic’s first stopover. In 2012, in association with the other towns linked to the liner, we will celebrate the Titanic’s centenary. A huge programme of events is planned for Cherbourg: exhibitions, concerts, theatre performances, commentated visits on land and at sea and much more. The town with its famous port and indeed the whole area of La Manche are getting ready to celebrate the memory of the transatlantic era and emigration at the time. You will be able to discover an exceptional programme of events throughout the year.
