Richelieu under seige!

When we went into Richelieu today and saw this gathering:

the first thought which sprung to mind was that these were medical students at the start of the academic year.

Well no, actually,  our first thought was "What's going on?"  So we asked  a friendly looking lad.....

and from his lengthy and rather rapid response we gleaned that these were medical students doing what students do best - dressing up - taking 'The Three Musketeers' as their theme!

It was difficult to make sense  of much of what he told us but looking online we noticed that the film "The Three Musketeers" is due to be released this week and this has obviously informed the choice of theme for these start of year celebrations. And what better place to come and re-enact the tale than Richelieu itself?!

Our next thought was 'Is now the right time to start worrying now about the future of the health service?!'

I wonder what Cardinal Richelieu would make of it all!
