The scenario: Summer 1912. The Castle is agitated on the occasion of the last preparations for the costume ball given by the Baron and the Baroness of Champchevrier in honor of the "Desobligeante" their mail car of the XVIIIth century which will then make its last outing.

Possibility to picnic before the visit in the castle park (from 7:30 p.m.).

Outdoor photographic exhibition "The fabulous journey of the gate of honor"
An imaginary and poetic journey to re-enchant visitors.
In the beginning, it was only a dream ... That of restoring the beautiful gate of honor of the Château de Champchevrier. This gate marks the boundary between the public and the private, the outside world and that of dreams, history, and the castle itself where so many lives have been lived. It has become the symbol of the castle itself.
Now more than ever, after confinement, we need poetry, re-enchantment, escape. Therefore through the magic wand of photographer Gustaf Hamilton, the gate of honor escaped, and leads the good life by traveling to the four corners of the world: as evidenced by the postcards XL format like those sent by the dwarf of Amélie Poulain, from the famous film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
From dream to reality: the gate has gone through a restoration campaign. Thanks to the generosity of patrons, the gate of honor really did a fabulous fate, beyond the trip, and is now back home!
Exhibition produced with the support of ADX Groupe, Crédit Agricole Touraine Poitou and the Centre Val de Loire region;
Free for visitors with a Castle entrance ticket.
