Seeds of May start: Three thousand children are expected until Sunday, with their school or family, in Yzeure (Allier)

On Thursday and Friday, schools are expected on Yzeurespace, but the square will also be open to the public (see program below).

Graines de mai is 20 years old, the festival had changed its name to open up to circus art, in 2001. Previously and since 1981 it was called Carrefour chanson enfant. The same team is at the helm, the Association pour l’animation d’Yzeure et du Bourbonnais (APAYB), led for 40 years by Bernard Chabert! A dedication to the service of childhood, joy and magic that deserves applause!

For this anniversary edition, two pillars of the event take to the Yzeurespace stage at 7pm to bring their respective songs to life.
Jean-Jacques Mercier and Noël Delmat participated in the festival as teachers with the students, as volunteers, managing the sound system, doing the dishes, collecting the artists, etc. They are mostly skilled musicians themselves and have dedicated their compositions to children when they have become parents.
