Many of us don't know it, but it was at Chambord that the world's first sound and light show was initiated in 1952. If the great night-time shows have since fallen asleep, 2022 will see them reborn on the occasion of the Nuits de Chambord, a great fresco combining history with legends. The event, which will take place over two evenings in the spring, will take spectators on a journey to the origins of one of the most prestigious châteaux in the Loire Valley, an ode to the four elements - earth, water, air and fire - for a dreamlike tale that will sublimate the building and its gardens. As a preamble, the public will have the pleasure of picnicking on the grass in front of the equestrian shows. More information on the Château de Chambord website
