Alliance Française


Alliance Francaise, mais qu'est ce que c'est?

Our branch of Alliance Française was founded in 1941, as a means to unite the British and Free French war effort in the region. It helped to spread an understanding of the French position after the defeat of 1940. 


Monthly talks in French and social meetings began, and the association has been in constant operation since

We now organise a monthly talk in French and a number of social events. The current president is Alison Lambert.


Membership covers all levels of ability in French, from relative beginners to native French speakers. All are welcome. 

We benefit from support from the Délégation générale de l'Alliance Française auprès de la Grande-Bretagne (Manchester), who we must thank for their support.
