The annual France Show--the UK's biggest celebration of all things French--happens at London's Olympia on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, January 23 to 25. You'll find roughly 170 exhibitors promoting French food, wine, tourism, vacation ideas, finance and legal help, entertainment and more, all under one roof. (To see all exhibitors, click here.) Roughly 15,000 attendees are expected. As in previous years there will be a French market, cooking demos, tutored wine tastings, a language theater, a chance to play pétanque and entertainment.
The France Show also hosts the largest French Property Exhibition in the UK, so if you're hunting for real estate, this is a great place to start. Plus, there's a French property auction on Saturday Jan 24, starting at 12:15, with 57 properties for sale. Full details about the auction properties can be seen here.
