Experience:
Great news! April 2018 will be getting off to a traditional start with several egg hunts, with Easter eggs hidden in the parks and other unusual locations in Paris. Among the most pleasant places in the capital to stretch your legs, feast your eyes and fill your stomach, L’Atelier Renault on the Champs-Elysées proposes a chocolate-themed workshop and a chocolate car hunt on Sunday 1 April starting at 10:30 AM. At the Vincennes Zoo, a number of fun activities and a great Easter egg hunt and decorated egg competition will be held on 1 and 2 April. Finally, at the Musée Gourmand du Chocolat, if you’re lucky you may possibly be taking home your own weight in chocolate!

On 8 April, to mark the 30th anniversary of the fight against cancer, come along and decorate the Pont des Arts, which is being covered with tulips, with a special structure designed by the Ecole des Fleuristes de Paris (Paris school of floristry). An occasion for sharing, solidarity and unity in the face of this disease, with flowers.

The following week, The Color Run will be back in Paris, on 15 April, the fifth event in the series. See you at the starting line at the Hôtel de Ville at 9 AM. As one of the world’s most enjoyable and most colourful races, it started life in Phoenix (United States) in January 2012. Two years later, The Color Run™ had expanded to more than 100 events and 2 million participants! The principle behind the race is that each kilometre of the race route corresponds to a “colour zone” where volunteers throw 100% natural cornstarch-based coloured powder. The objective? To go through several colour zones and to cross the finish line coated in as many colours as possible. The day continues on a musical note with the Finisher Festival by NRJ Extravadance. Get your running shoes on!

Tempted by a world tour in just four hours? Take a leap into the unknown on Friday 6 April at the Musée du Quai Branly for a Before Exotique. This free evening event includes visits and activities but also music based on the Peintures des Lointains (Paintings from Afar) exhibition. Hot, mysterious, faraway destinations such as Cairo, Tahiti and the deserts of Africa will reveal some of their secrets to you.

After the exhibition Froid (Cold), the Cité des Sciences is playing with fire for an exhibition entitled Feu (Fire), which you can discover from 10 April 2018 to 6 January 2019. Having itself suffered a fire in August 2015, the Cité des Sciences has decided to look at the theme of fire prevention while at the same time answering many questions youngsters may have. With admission open to children aged 9+, Feu includes numerous audio-visual displays, multimedia attractions, interactive experiences and interesting items, including a smoke-filled room. All carefully designed to help you master, understand and fight fire.

The legendary Eugène Delacroix will take pride of place at the Louvre museum from 29 March until 23 July. Organised in partnership with New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art this exhibition dedicated to the painter includes 180 works – most of which are paintings, but also prints or drawings, tracing the key moments in the life of this artist, “an endearing person, a glory-seeker and a workaholic”.

Hear:
A tribute to Debussy at the Radio France auditorium on 5 April. Two works for piano and orchestra, broadcast on France Musique, will be conducted by Emmanuel Krivine. Admission costs from 10 to 65 euros. A choral weekend is also being organised on 7 and 8 April to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Radio France choir. The repertoire includes Rossini, Brahms, Ravel and Bizet, with conductors including Sofi Jeannin. As a bonus, there’ll be a vocal coaching workshop before the concert.

On 6 April, head for the Pan Piper to see the “Heiwa Daiko” show. With their Japanese drums, known as Taïkos, the Taïkokanou troupe invites you to enjoy a welcome change of scenery as you watch a performance in which the emphasis is as much on sound as on visual effects. In Japan, Taïko playing is considered as a musical sport as this is a physical activity, almost like a martial art. The troupe’s motto is "Our drums sound to the beats of our heart!" A great philosophy.
Admission price: 25 euros

Another place, another theme, another atmosphere… The Prince de Galles’ restaurant and theatre, La Scène, is organising a theatrical dinner on Monday 9 April as a tribute to Marcel Pagnol. An event combining high literature and high cuisine. In a stunningly orchestrated performance, the actors and the restaurant will be bringing you the best of their art for this evening event, which marks the start of the 2018 season of theatrical dinners at the Prince de Galles. On stage, Jacques Weber, Véronique Vella and Laurent Montel will be giving readings of La Gloire de mon Père during the meal. For the food lovers, the chef Stéphanie Le Quellec promises a menu brimming with fine Provençal flavours. From the pissaladière (onion and anchovy pie) to bouillabaisse (fish soup) not forgetting mendiants (a chocolate treat), you can experience all taste of Provence on your plate. Our mouths are already watering!
