We may still feel slightly sleep deprived after losing that one precious hour over the weekend, but how glorious is it to have an extra hour of daylight now that the weather is warming up?! It’s especially nice given how many fab events are going on in town this week – you can see by the sheer number of activities that the busy social season is nearly upon us.

Here’s what we’ve got on our agenda this week…

  • r7al – a new film festival here in Lausanne – is on until Wednesday with viewings of iconic films, conferences about the art of film-making, and opportunities to meet some of the extraordinary personalities behind some of the world’s best movies. The line up is seriously impressive – check it out here!
  • Webern, Mozart and Mahler are all on the program at the Grand Concert from the Orchestre Chambre de Lausanne on Monday and Tuesday nights.
  • Or, elevate your lunch break on Tuesday with a lunchtime show with the orchestre.
  • It’s Raclette Tuesday at Chalet des Enfants!
  • Interested in learning to knit, but think you might be better if you had a glass of wine in hand? Try this apéro tricot at Ta Tribu on Tuesday night.
  • Carla Bruni is coming to Beaulieu on Wednesday night and there are still tickets available!
  • Easter week is in full swing with loads of events for kids and adults
  • On Saturday, an association that supports families with children who have cancer is creating an enormous mosaic of Easter eggs in Ouchy. It’s going to be an impressive feat, and after the event, you can purchase one of the eggs to support the mission of the organization.
  • For a reflective Good Friday, head to the Cathedral for a concert of holy texts from Bach and Dupré.
  • Or, on Saturday evening, the religious music of Haydn will be presented at Espace Culturel des Terreaux.
  • Friday night, head to Café Saint Pierre for a DJ and dancing.
  • Musee Elysee is open in the evening from 6-8pm this Thursday for Nocturnes.
  • Did someone say GIANT FONDUE in Ouchy? Um, yes please.
  • Just because it’s Easter Sunday, doesn’t mean you can skip your training day 😉 If you’re prepping for the 20K, join these fine people.
  • And last, but DEFINITELY not least, this Sunday marks the opening of the Tulip Festival in Morges! Nothing says that spring is on its way more than the optimistic little blooms of every color you could imagine against the backdrop of the lake. The festival is on until May 6, so there’s no rush but make sure you don’t miss it.
