In commemoration of our beloved late King RamaIX on the occasion of National Father’s Day and the 333rd anniversary of the Thai-French friendship, the French Alumni Association (AAEF), led by President Premika Sucharitkul, in collaboration with Suan Luang Rama IX Foundation, the Franco-Thai Chamber of Commerce, Français du Monde Club, PTT Global Chemical PCL, and Natural Bev Co., Ltd., will organize an event in the French Garden within Suan Luang Rama IX on the weekend of 7-8 December 2019 at Chitraladajharal Courtyard. Proceeds from this event will be used to renovate the French garden.
The Association will zap Versailles to Suan Luang so that Thais will be able to enjoy French taste and French products in the Marché de Noël – like ambience. There will be several stalls selling products in Christmas Market-style which is popular during the festive season around famous cities like Paris and Strasbourg. There will be a variety of arts and cultural performances including classical music and jazz performed by Thai and French artists such as Frank Herrgott, Catherine Barbier and the Cabaret des Invités, Natasha Patamapongse (Mellow Motive), Boss Ari, Cycle Brass Quintet and AJC Band. On the artist corner, there will be painting exhibitions from “Artists from the 2 Reigns” and painting lessons demonstrated by well-known names like Suchart Wongthong, Maitri Photharaj, Aphichai Karikan, Sanit Thiaworakul, Navee Ruengraniam, Tanit Duangdamrong, Jingjai Ooncharoenkit, Sippawat Pholsingh, and many more. Makeup artist Montri Watlaead will turn your face into flowers to match the Suan Luang flower festivities. There will be Montmartre style street artists creating your portrait in different styles as well as many corners for taking photos.
The highlight of the event is the light and sound presentation of Kosapan’s journey “333 Years from Versailles… to Suan Luang Rama IX,” demonstrating the journey of the Siamese Envoy from Ayudhaya to Brest with the marvels of Versailles through magical light and dance performances.
