Description

“Les 26 Couleurs” is a place steeped in history: the former power plant** of wallpaper manufacturer Leroy. Its name is a reference to the machine created by Louis-Isidore Leroy in 1877, which has listed historic monument status. Over its 140 years of existence (1842-1982), half of which were spent in Saint-Fargeau-Ponthierry, Leroy became Europe’s leading wallpaper manufacturer, and its pressroom is now a heritage site with a permanent exhibition and guided tours.

A multicultural space

A monument to the town’s rich industrial past, the factory has been transformed into a cultural space open to all and embracing multiple disciplines. Les 26 couleurs comprises the Ateliers du Transbordeur, workshops where you can find out all about printing processes; creative activities around wallpaper, worker architecture and the visual arts; a 240-seater local cinema screening great films at bargain prices, art-house movies, children’s films, and movies accompanied by live music, as well as a variety of shows: theatre, cabaret, dance, concerts, exhibitions

At this cultural centre in Saint-Fargeau-Ponthierry, art is about seeing everything in all the colours!
