Fête de la musique: Midsommar + Isabel Sörling in concert

We invite you into our garden for a dual celebration of summer and music! The programme includes traditional Midsommar singing and dancing and an enthralling concert by Isabel Sörling.

Midsommar is an age-old tradition in Sweden. A flower-decked pole is erected, and revellers dance and sing around it. Why not put a flower garland on your head and join in the fun!

The festivities continue with a concert by songwriter and musician Isabel Sörling, who navigates freely between improvisation, folk and avant-garde music. She’ll be performing her latest critically acclaimed album Mareld, which takes its inspiration from traditional African music.

Swedish specialities available all day at our market stalls!


In collaboration with Éditions délicieuses, the Embassy of Sweden in France, IKEA France and Svenska Affären.
