An unusual venue: Le Plongeoir

Renowned for its medieval city, motor racing and bucolic countryside, Le Mans also boasts some unexpected and unusual places. Such is the case of Le Plongeoir. The Cité du Cirque, a hybrid of exhibitions, shows, meetings and workshops, showcases the dynamism and creativity of the circus world on a daily basis. Discover it during your stay at Hôtel Le Mans Country Club!

An evolving venue

Le Mans' passion for the circus first took shape with the first edition of the Le Mans fait son cirque festival. Building on this success, the town decided to convert the former Sablons swimming pool into the Cité du Cirque, to provide a venue for this lively art form. Constantly growing and evolving, Le Plongeoir has received significant recognition by being awarded the Pôle national Cirque label in June 2023. Cultivating its inclusive project, its actions to disseminate the art and its numerous local and regional performances, the Cité du Cirque has become one of the emblems of Le Mans.

Take advantage of your stay at Le Mans Country Club to discover the many activities on offer at the Cité du Cirque.
