Cléry’s Sound & Light Show

If you are passing through our Terres du Val de Loire in the summer, don’t miss the Cléry’s Sound and Light Show to Dry. This big show mobilises some 300 volunteers. After shining a light on the Middle Ages, the French Revolution, and the Renaissance, Cléry’s Sound & Light Show is now bringing the German Occupation back to life with the show: « Liberté, les combattants de l’ombre« .

For this 6th show, the ambition is still great: tell, transmit and remember through a popular show accessible to all, from children to the most learned. Cléry’s Sound & Light Show brings the great moments of French history back to life by transporting you into epic battles and adventures. It has become one of the great living shows in the Centre-Val de Loire region.

A historic show

“Liberté”, the great show on the French resistance

Cléry’s Sound & Light Show continues its journey through the history of France and has offered a new show since 2018, dedicated to the French Resistance during the Second World War. Set between the Beauce, Sologne and Val de Loire areas, the show retraces the daily life under the German occupation and the emergence of resistance networks, these freedom fighters who said “no” to oppression.

This show dedicated to the Resistance has been in our minds for several years now. Since 2012 to be precise. After the French Revolution, we launched a great survey among our audience members and volunteers in order to choose which new page of French history we would bring back to life in our next show. A dozen themes were tested, from the Antiquity to the Second World War, including Louis XIII’s Musketeers. Two themes clearly stood out: the Renaissance and the Resistance. We chose to make these into the subjects of our next shows. After telling the splendour of the Renaissance and reign of François Ier, now it is time to tackle the Resistance!
