Café-Theater Red balloons

France Bretagne

Short presentation

In Lamballe, the department's first café-theater has opened.


The objective is to open a café-theater as a new offer fully integrated with a departmental vision but also local and communal. Knowing that the will to achieve this goal must be done within the framework of a collaboration with the associative and artistic community in the broad sense but also with a partnership of the local companies.

Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

The project is the first café-theatre in the department.
The choice of the territory of Lamballe Terre et Mer was made naturally because of the dynamism and attractiveness that can be felt at the economic, cultural and tourist levels. Since the idea was born, exchanges have been taking place with elected representatives from the fields of culture, urban planning and tourism since the beginning of the project (December 2017). The latter are stakeholders in the project, aware of the potential of this place both in terms of image for the municipality and its surroundings but also from an economic point of view for the centre of Lamballe.

Target audience:
- Large audience
- Local associations et companies

Actions implemented

The project consists of transforming an existing building in the heart of downtown LAMBALLE ARMOR into a theater café, with a main room open to the bar, all on 120 m2 for up to 84 people.

The planned (since March 2019):
- A theater
- The cabaret
- Bar-concert
- Artists' residence
- The sale of services through the rental of the hall
- Catering
- Theatre troupe
- Acting classes
