Paris:– Saturday, 31. July 2004:– This is the page for finding some of the 'regular' events that are on for you in Paris this summer, without including many of the temporary exhibitions on show at the big museums.

For some of the 'summer–type' events you'll need to turn to the 'Scène Eté column that is a companion to this one. Again, it doesn't contain everything that is going on.

Expect to see a greater number of the coming fall's events here soon.
