Bringing the high kicks of the cancan girls, thousands of dream properties and fine food and wine to Earls Court From 17-19 January 2014

Last year thousands of visitors flocked to west London for the event and the 2014 show promises an even greater taste of la vie en rose.

Now in its 7th year, the annual show showcases the best of French travel, culture and property. Celebrity chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, a France Show favourite, will be taking to the Flavours of France stage. The Michelin-starred maestro will be recreating some of his signature dishes on stage and tempting the crowds with his award-winning creations. Making her France Show debut will be French cookery writer Clotilde Dusoulier, whose gourmet blog Chocolate & Zucchini has made her a favourite among Francophiles and foodies alike.

Actress and author Carol Drinkwater will also be gracing the Flavours of France stage. Following her debut book The Olive Farm, about her life-changing decision to buy a run-down olive farm in Provence, Carol has written several best-selling books in the Olive series. Her latest work, The Girl in Room Fourteen is currently a Kindle Single bestseller and online sensation.

For those thinking of making a permanent move across the Channel or even investing in a part-time pied à terre, the France Show is home to the French Property Exhibition, packed with thousands of dream properties for sale. It's a not-to-be-missed opportunity to find out more about the French property market and get the lowdown from estate agents on buying a house across the Channel. Throughout the weekend a series of Property Seminars at the show will address important issues surrounding the house-buying process as well as the ins and outs of living and working in France. These popular seminars are led by industry experts and provide essential professional advice for free.

With 83 million international visitors in 2012, France is the world's most popular tourist destination; with idyllic stone villages, a variety of beautiful landscapes and world-renowned gastronomy it's not hard to see why. The France Show is the perfect opportunity to plan a holiday across the Channel as tour operators, tourist boards and accommodation providers will be on hand to offer advice and information on ways to make the most of your trip. For those who need to brush up on their French in preparation for a trip, the language theatre seminars provide free tuition and inspiration for getting to grips with the lingo.

The France Show is the perfect opportunity to raise a glass or two of France's finest tipples. With experts leading the tutored wine tastings, visitors can sip and slurp their way through some of the most exciting wines from Bordeaux and Languedoc-Roussillon. The more competitive might want to try their hand on the pétanque pitch before attending a wine seminar!

It wouldn't be a true French day out without picking up a coffee and freshly-baked flaky croissant, a generous wedge of ripe Brie or some olives imbued with the flavours of Provence. At The France Show shoppers can fill their baskets with some of the best flavours from across the Channel at the UK's largest French Market.

With so much of France under one roof it might take more than a day to experience it all. The show runs for three days, making it the perfect opportunity to experience a French weekend to remember!
