Palace 2.0 - Lausanne culture is in full swing at the Lausanne Palace, which throughout the year hosts wonderful concerts, meetings, readings, exhibitions... thanks to the partners we have supported for many years.
This festival highlights young local musicians, some of whom are now making an international career. Each year, about a hundred musicians are presented on the festival stages, in front of an ever-growing audience. Throughout the year, the Lausanne Palace, in association with the Pully Musical Weekend, hosts concerts and exhibitions, provides accommodation for the Festival's artists and even concocts exclusive events in collaboration with Guillaume Hersperger, the Festival's artistic director, and Caroline Mercier, its general manager.
Since its creation in 1987 by Maurice Béjart, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne has been a reference in the choreographic world. Directed since 2007 by his designated successor, Gil Roman, the artistic excellence of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne contributes to bringing Maurice Béjart's work to life while providing a space for creation. The close collaboration between the Lausanne Palace and the Béjart Ballet Lausanne allows the splendour of Lausanne to shine through.
With the recent inauguration of Plateforme 10 in the railway station district of Lausanne, art has made an event of its own in Lausanne. As a partner for several years of Photo Elysée and the Mudac, the Lausanne Palace is delighted to be the "home" of the greatest international artists regularly invited to these prestigious exhibitions. The themes give rise to a surge of creativity at the Lausanne Palace which, from a cocktail creation to a shared moment of art history, allows its guests to experience moments of great quality.
This book fair, whose conviviality is so much appreciated by its many visitors, explores each year important themes of current literature thanks to the presence of 180 invited authors. At the beginning of September, don't be surprised if you come across some of the stars of French-language literature at the Lausanne Palace! But it is also throughout the year that Le Lausanne Palace echoes this wonderful event with a programme of literary brunches. Finally, come and have a drink, book in hand, at the Biblioteca, a library open to all and made up of books supplied each year by Le Livre sur les Quais.
Ladies' Lunch Lausanne is a philanthropic association created in 1991 by Mrs Carmela Lagonico. Every year, the Lausanne Palace hosts the two lunches organised to raise funds in support of a foundation or association whose mutual aid action (child protection, assistance to people in need, fight against precariousness), carried out mainly in French-speaking Switzerland, deserves special encouragement. At each event, 300 participants are among a network of nearly 4000 women who come together around a common value and impulse: solidarity.
