The French evening will be held on Tuesday night, August 27, 2013, beginning at 8 pm. Rendez-vous at the “Galerie des Machines de l’Ile” in short walking distance from the tramway stop "Chantiers Navals". From La Cité Nantes Events Centre, go to the tramway stop "Duchesse Anne Chateau" and take line 1 direction "François Mitterand" or "Jamet". From "Chantiers Navals" cross the Loire River, using the bridge "Anne de Bretagne".

This Gallery has been set up in the old shipyard. It is an unprecedented artistic project born by François Delarozière’s and Pierre Orefice’s imaginations, bringing the visitor to the cross-over point between Jules Vernes’ “invented world”, the mechanical universe of Léonard de Vinci and the industrial history of the city of Nantes.

Be on time to enjoy the special show of the Great Elephant that will be given especially for you. Take time to visit the "galerie des machines" and encounter strange machines, including the giant Manta Ray, while enjoying a delicious buffet, typical Breton music and becoming (re-) acquainted with old or new colleagues.
