France Show 2015 - 23-25 January - Olympia London

One thing the France Show offers is an authentic taste of fine French food. Each day top French chefs will lead cooking demos, where you can learn how to create their most celebrated dishes, before being able to taste them for yourself. There are also plenty of regional delicacies for you to try at the traditional French market - from Maroilles cheese and truffles to sweet pasties - you'll be blown away by the flavours of France. The show knows that you can't fully enjoy the country's food without a glass of great French wine, which is why there will be a number of wine tasting sessions taking place during the event. Whether you want to become connoisseur of Bordeaux or learn about the sparkling wines from the Loire Valley, you'll enjoy exploring France's finest tipples.

Once you've satisfied your appetite why not take some time out to brush up on your language skills? There are lots of fun workshops, from learning French through song to more technical lessons that focus on those tricky phonemes - after attending these sessions you'll be talking the talk in no time.

The show is also great for a spot of shopping. Winding through the traditional market you'll be able to get your hands on fashion, handmade arts and crafts and one-off gifts. After you're shopped out, I recommend that you get yourself over to the main stage to enjoy to some authentic French entertainment. Vintage music quartet, The Sparrows of Paris, will be performing the sounds of the 1920s followed by an energetic show by a talented troupe of cancan dancers - your head will be spinning after all those high kicks!

Beyond culture, food and entertainment, the show has a dedicated zone for those looking to relocate to the continent. If you're thinking about buying a second home in France you can check out the best properties on the market at the French Property Exhibition. There are also dedicated forums for those who have any questions about the buying process and all aspects of living in France.  If it's business advice you're after, there will be strong a presence from regional chambers of commerce on each day of the show.

You can experience all of this and a whole lot more for just £8 with your exclusive Eurotunnel Le Shuttle customer promotional code. Use the ET882 code and enjoy exploring what the show has to offer.
