Fortnightly talks in French, October to May.
Alliance Française de Londres | Cercle Français de Bristol
'We are a friendly group of several dozen members who meet in Ringwood on the second Friday of the month ... to ... enjoy an illustrated talk on a French theme ... We love the French way of life, but our meetings are in English.'
'Public events including a biennial FBC Lecture with high profile speakers, are advertised in the newsletter and on the website. We also work with other institutions to host a series of smaller Franco-British Partnership events, some of which are open to the public.'
Lunchtime talks every 1-2 months, plus a wide range of other events. Typically: 'Tickets are £15 to include refreshments'. (Some lectures are 'private'.)
'The Institut français exists to promote French language and culture, but also to encourage cross-cultural exchange. The programmation of talks and films reflects this dual aim, with speakers from both sides of the Channel meeting regularly in discussion, and screenings of films from all corners of the world.'
'The Institut français exists to promote French language and culture in Scotland, by providing French courses and organising events (film screenings, talks, exhibitions, concerts, etc.).'
