Vas-y Tuti ! – by Isabelle Jacquemain at BMJ

There are shows by Isabelle Jacquemain at the BMJ this and next weeks. See the photo below (taken from a flyer) for more info.


This & That Week #8 – February 2014

  • Just opened: The Brow Bar at rue Saint-Pierre 4.
  • There will be a new flea-market concept in Geneva, a Gratiferia, where people can come to giveaway their things and to take other things, entirely for free. On Sunday 23 Feb 2014, 2-4:30pm. More info. (Thanks, Kathleen!)
  • Coop is still offering the Carte Journalière Duo, until 23 February, while stocks last. At least one of the ticket users must have Half-Card.  The tickets can be used until 2 March, which I think would be great for day trips during next week school break!
  • At Château de Chillon – Montreux/Veytaux: “An imaginary museum of Playmobil®” Photographs by Richard Unglik. Until 25 May 2014.
  • For those living in or close to Orbe, the library of Orbe now has story telling time for baby to preschooler (0-5y). Every Thursday 9:30-10:30am. Free.
  • Le Parc Pré Vert at Signal de Bougy re-opened for the warmer seasons last Saturday. They offer many workshops for children (registration required) as well as the possibility to host birthday parties.

In the future:

  • The plan for trams and la place de l’Europe in Flon looks greart. They plan to close all traffic (but the trams) there and convert it into a pedestrian area. This plan still need authorization and if granted, the tram would be on service at the end of 2018.
  • The plan for the future Children’s Hospital looks great. It will be moved close to CHUV. Opening end 2019.

Vache de Noël – at BMJ, 3-18 Dec 2013

Isabelle Jacquemain will be back at the Children’s Library (BMJ) this holiday season! This time with her Christmas cows!

I have listened to Isabelle’s stories during the Mario Ramos event at BMJ and she was awesome. You won’t regret it – that is of course if you and your little ones understand some French. And there will be snack at the end of the show :). FYI, age recommendation: from 5y. Official info here.

Storytelling at Palais de Rumine by L’oreille qui Parle

I have never met a child who didn’t like stories. So, I say YAAAAY for more storytelling events in the city! And it’s so fitting the to colder coming months!

Below is the schedule of story telling by L’oreille qui parle (in French, for age 5 and up). They take place at the Palais de Rumine in Riponne (free entry).


FYI, L’oreille qui parle also does a lot of story telling in other spots in Lausanne and around Vaud. See their agenda here.
