Calling all Francophiles! Get your fix of all things French at Watershed this month. Two things the French are absolutely brilliant at are making films and cooking food. Get in the mood for our French films coming soon by tasting some tempting French menu classics in the Café/Bar. To ease you in, if you order two French specials as main meals you can enjoy £5.00 off a bottle of French house wine or even a bottle of Champagne!

So who was he, why was he one of the most famous people on earth, and how did he come to influence the likes of Elvis and Elton John?
