Thierry Lentz, Director of the Fondation Napoleon, is currently on the Island. The Fondation is working closely with French Consul, Michel Dancoisne-Martineau, on the renovations at Longwood House, rebuilding the Generals Quarters.
The Fondation Napoleon is the primary source of funding for the extensive renovations with over €1M being invested in the project.
On Wednesday 15 January at 6pm, Thierry will give a talk on the work of the Fondation and the importance of work taking place on the Island as we prepare for the 200th anniversary of the commemoration of Napoleon’s time here on St Helena. This talk is open to everyone and takes place upstairs at the Canister. The talk starts promptly at 6pm, so please be seated in advance.
