The Colchester Anglo-French Circle was started in 1970 to promote and enjoy all things French. Our 50th Anniversary celebration will take place in 2021, having been postponed from October 2020 because of Covid-19.
We are a friendly, mixed group of people interested in the language, art and culture of France. We discuss its history, the diversity of its landscape, its haunting songs and music, the uniqueness of its cuisine, its famous wines and our travel experiences.
As well as some entertaining talks by visiting speakers (some in French, some in English), members can also share their own experiences. We also have some musical evenings, quiz and games evenings and social events, all with a French theme.
Everyone is welcome. We start our meetings informally with tea and coffee, the environment is friendly and relaxed and there is an opportunity to converse in French if you wish. It is not necessary to be fluent in the French language.
