Go out & have fun

Here are our top spots to help you get out of your own head! Elation, frenzy, enthusiasm, tenderness, friendliness, kindness and surprises: a whole treasure trove of emotions awaits you, between the different performance venues, sport stands and play areas in and around Dieppe.

Get your fill of emotions

Watch concerts and shows

When you step inside Dieppe Scène Nationale, you can expect a deeply moving experience. That theatre, and sometimes the Drakkar in Neuville-lès-Dieppe, are real spaces for artistic exploration. Theatre, dance, circus arts, music and more: here, the performing arts are seen, read, heard and played for all. Open your mind and immerse yourself in our eclectic and unique line-up!

At the Conservatoire Camille Saint-Saëns, the arts ring out in a variety of forms: theatre, music, dance and more. But they are all connected by a shared connection between a team of passionate teachers, dedicated students, seasoned professionals and a devoted audience. In the auditorium, you can attend wonderful performances and rediscover the classics.

A new cultural playground has opened in Dieppe, the amazing cabaret La Sirène à Barbe. Between comedies, dramas, revues, stand-up, variety shows, drag shows, magic and more, our cultural effervescence and togetherness are on display!

Films for any taste

Go to the cinema

Located right by the train station, the old 19th century tobacco factory had long been standing abandoned. After several years of renovations which came to an end in 2019, the bold move was pulled off without a hitch! While maintaining its ancient soul with its timber framing and its brick façade, the building now accommodates a very modern cinema, amongst other establishments.

The Grand Forum is at the cutting edge of new technologies. Thanks to its 4K digital projectors and Dolby 7.1 and DTS:X surround sound, you can look forward to total immersion in the latest box office releases!

Are you more interested in arthouse films? Then head to the dark theatre at Dieppe Scène Nationale!

A day at the races

Hippodrome de Dieppe

Dieppe also offers a 1st-class racetrack. Some 15 races are held there each season.

Whether you are just a punter for the day or an experienced racegoer, watching a horse race is always quite the spectacles, and there is something fascinating about the whole racing world.

It all begins with the parade to the post, when the jockeys mount their horses under the public eye and receive their final instructions from their trainers. This is a chance for you to admire the horses from up close, and maybe even make your choice for a bet!

Next comes a stop by the betting windows where the predictions are flying freely. The posted odds can also help you make your decision. Between the favourite and the outsider, place your bets. Now take a seat in the stands, and don’t forget your binoculars!

Whatever the discipline racing that day – flat, trotting or steeplechase – the suspense will be gripping. When the race is over, a loud hubbub arises from the stands, in a mixture of disappointed sighs from the unlucky and shouts of joy from the winners!
