Le Voilà! festival (2ème édition) célèbre la culture francophone à Londres, en français et en anglais avec 10 jours de représentations de pièces de théâtre, activités pour les enfants, concerts, un cabaret d’impro, de la poésie… J’ai personnellement assisté à la pièce J’me sens pas belle (en français) il y a quelques mois et elle est très sympa.
