Newsletter from Normandy


Good afternoon,

We hope that you are well.

First and foremost, we would like to take advantage of our monthly newsletter to send you our full support in apprehending this new normal.

Our "What's on in Normandy?" newsletter keeps an unusual format for the month of June as  travel to Normandy from the Channel Islands has not resumed yet. Manche Iles Express suspended its boats until 15 June but no official announcement has been made as to a reopening of the borders at this date. 

In France, restrictions are almost completely lifted and Normans will be able to return to restaurants, bars, museums… However, gatherings of more than 10 people are prohibited until 21 June and most events will not be able to happen over the summer months. 

While we all await patiently to be able to travel again, here are a few advices to keep Normandy close.


We are open again and have all the information you need to dream and plan your future trip to Normandy. We are asking you to respect a few guidelines when entering but you are most welcome - with a mask on!

PRODUCTS FROM NORMANDY are available in our shop. 

At the moment, you can find:

• Well-being hampers by Les Sabots d'Eugénie

• Tea and jam by Les Délices de Camille

• Postcards and posters by L'Oeil Bleu

And we will be adding to our selection very soon, stay informed by following us on Facebook


Come in to find information on Normandie Impressionniste.

For its 4th edition, this festival has chosen a theme declined in numerous exhibitions throughout Normandy: "La couleur au jour le jour" - "Color day by day". 

Postponed to 4 July until 15 November, you can get your programme and postcards from the event at our office. A great way to get to know most of the Norman museums. 


The 76th anniversary of D-Day will be commemorated this month in Normandy. As it happened in the Channel Islands, some events will be held online which gives us a great opportunity to celebrate together such an important and historic date. 

Friday 5 June - Miss Paramount Concert

Thought especially for the occasion, in a context that does not allow a concert in public, enjoy an exceptional live of the famous Miss Paramount on the Facebook page of the Tourist Office «Isigny Omaha Tourism» at 7 p.m.

Saturday 6 June - Bells of Freedom

The church bells will ring in memory of the D-Day landings and the Allies. At 1 p.m., the Juno Bell Concert will be video-streamed on the Facebook pages: Juno Beach Centre & Terres de Nacre Tourisme.

Tuesday 9 June - Remember Omaha

A guide of the tourist office of Isigny-Omaha will explain the allied Landing on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944 and how it became “Bloody Omaha”. The event will be posted on the «Isigny Omaha Tourisme» Facebook page on June 9.

More than 60 museums in Normandy have decided to share their collections online.

With nearly 70,000 objects, this portal offers a beautiful panorama of the heritage preserved in the museums of Normandy. These works of art, objects, documents... cover a very wide historical period, from Prehistory to the 21st century.
