A wealth of summer activities in the new Cité Seniors programme is being offered in July and August. All kinds of things to do to help you relax, keep active, meet people and maintain social links.

And of course, Cité Seniors welcomes you all summer long during its opening hours, just to spend some time in good company away from the sun. The activities take place at Cité Seniors or outside the venue at the Théâtre de l’Orangerie. Here are a few ideas. Also, consult the programme at the bottom of the page.
