The Meyboom on display

Next door to the Palais du Midi, the site and museum devoted to the Companions of Saint Laurence (of the Meyboom tradition) is opening its doors. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to explore the old documents and films presenting this ancient popular folk tradition dating back more than 700 years. You will be able to see the wheel of fortune, the cheval godet horse and the giant figures, recognised as oral and intangible heritage by UNESCO. And the icing on the cake? Two craftswomen _ a basket-maker and lace-maker _ will provide a demonstration of their skills.

A partnership between the Compagnons de Saint-Laurent (the Meyboom), Agnès Lieckens, basket-maker, and Gabrielle Legrand, lace-maker.
