The beautiful hilltop village of Belves turned back the calender yesterday and presented their Fête Médiévale and it was amazing. Shop owners wore Medieval costumes, musical entertainment in the streets, craft exhibitions, demonstrations of medieval combat, and the incredible mystical woodland sprites. All contributed in making Sunday an incredibly enjoyable day for us and the hundreds of other people that flocked to Belves.
Stunning costume by the Desmodium players.
While the males were mischievous, the female had a pocket full of happiness that she would sprinkle onto the crowds.
All of the performance was completed on stilts, up hill and down, they danced around the streets of Belves.
The Medieval combat display with sword, knife, axe, spear and club.
Everyone from children to adults were shouting for their favourite to win.
Wow, brilliant combat in extreme heat nearly 40C. It gave you a taste of how brutal Medieval life was.
Soukha, music and dance with jugglers and aerial acrobat.
Love the detail of the Medieval peasant costume.
Event:- Daglan Fête this coming weekend.
Not too be missed is the parade on Sunday afternoon and the fireworks in the evening.
