Live @ Ciné lumière 5-11pm

    * The Festival de Valloires presents Alexandra Dariescu – Piano/classical - 5pm

    * Cine concert by Sporto Kantes – Electro/Dub - 6pm Inventive duo Sporto Kantes perform their electro dub soundtrack with live saxophone to Protazanov’s 1924 sci-fi classic Aelita.

    * Moussu T e lei Jovents – World - 8pm Marseilles' folk-pop troubadours are back in London! The band’s songs are idiosyncratic vignettes of Marseilles life and Occitan culture; catchy ditties that gloriously evoke the unique character of France’s second city.

    * Emilie Simon - Chanson/Pop/Electro - 9.30pm Veritable sonic fairytale, Emilie Simon’s universe is made of intimate, vaporous, and aquatic melodies. Together the songs build the framework of a story, worshipping the natural and the surrealist, both contemplative and ephemeral.

* Occitan : past, present, futur – conference - 4.30pm - Petite Salle
* Singing workshop led by the Can't Sing Choir from Morley College – 6pm - Petite Salle

All performances free; no advance booking (except when otherwise stated). School workshops reserved for school parties only. Events subject to capacity limitations; admission on a first come first served basis.
