A series of indoor and outdoor concert performances will be held over the New Year period, in Paris.
Place des Villette is large wide-open space situated in front of the La Grande Halle de la Villette, an impressive iron-work building reminiscent of the Tour Eiffel. It was famous for its slaughterhouses but since the area’s renovation in 1987 is now used for concerts, dramatic shows, modern art exhibitions, an open air cinema in the summer months and a Christmas market and funfair in the winter.
Found in the 19th Arrondissement, Place des Villette forms part of the wider complex call La Villette, which attracts tourists and locals alike to its cultural centres including Parc de la Villette, the third biggest park in Paris, Music, Art, Science and Technology museums, theatres and concert halls dedicated to a vast array of music genres and dramatic art.

This beautiful, neo-Gothic cathedral can be found in heart of Paris on the Avenue George V between the Champs-Élysées and the right bank of the River Seine. It is the seat of the Episcopal Church of Europe. The origin of the cathedral dates back to the 1870s when John B. Morgan, cousin to J.P. Morgan, successfully raised money to buy land and build a church for the local American Episcopal congregation. Designed by English architect, George Street, who also designed the American church in Rome. It was consecrated on November 25th, Thanksgiving Day 1886.
