Launch Events

The new Reading Room will be the perfect setting to host a series of events marking its reopening and unveiling its amazing renovation.

Weaving together past, present, and future in the same way that La Médiathèque has carefully preserved its gorgeous historical features while looking to the digital age, this series will kick off with our Inaugural Pop-Up on 16 May, followed a few days later by a playful reflection on Franco-British relations in the form of a
theatrical duel, as part of our current theatre series, En Scène! (20-21 May)

Next up, our conference in collaboration with the Musée de la Grande Guerre du Pays de Meaux, Britain Joins the War, invites you to reflect on the past and mark the centenary of World War I (27 May).

Look towards a future of sleepless nights with our third event, Noir Is the Colour, as you discover the terrifying genius of noir masters Pierre Lemaitre and John Harvey (29 May).
