Culture and entertainment

Since the Lille European Culture Capital event in 2004, the Lille Metropole area has enjoyed a particularly wide-ranging cultural offer. The organisation of largescale exhibitions, festive and friendly events is made possible thanks to Lille 3000, which sets the cultural pace.
