Illuminated magic and concerts
The Park & Château of Valençay also welcome some prestigious events: the illuminated magic of "Candlelit visits", concerts, and plays in the Small Theatre built in 1810 by order of Talleyrand. It was built for the purpose of entertaining the future king of Spain, Ferdinand VII, who was confined as a prisoner at Valençay in a golden cage for 6 years.
In summer, there are exceptional nights when 3,000 candles adorn the castle. Here you will find costumed actors, trumpeters, lively kitchens, films for children, tastings of AOC Valençay, carriage rides in the illuminated park, Am Ketenes and his band for two concerts in the castle courtyard, and a final fireworks show. Two unforgettable evenings not to be missed!
