Speak the Culture: France covers the broad spectrum of French culture, from history and language to the creative arts and everyday culture - the food, the wine, the strikes, the shrugs, the quirky driving... It dissects the figures, events and habits that have contributed to the country and its people. It’s the guidebook to French culture.

‘Filbert’ is another name for hazelnut, derived from the name of St. Philibert, a Frankish abbot whose commemorative feast day falls on August 22, the date by which hazelnuts were supposed to start ripening. The relics of Saint Philibert were moved to Tournus in 875 and the Romanesque church and  abbey at Tournus was named after him. High Point Holidays runs an independent walking holiday in France which starts and finishes at Tournus and explores the amazing early medieval architecture and vines of the French southern Burgundy: Romanesque Burgundy - The Monk's Trail. In England, at the highest village in Dorset a folk dance festival called the 'Filly Loo' is held every year. There is a torch lit procession with six antlered deer-men and four other costumed characters: a Maid Marion, a bowman, a hobbyhorse and a fool. The origin of the name, ‘Filly Loo’, is unknown. Some suggest it was originally held to celebrate the end of the cultivated hazelnut harvest.

Win yourself a copy by answering the question below:

Name the highest village in Dorset, which hosts the 'filly loo' festival and can be visited on our 2 walking holidays: Wonders of Wessex and Hart of the Cranborne Chase.
