For lovers of France and the French Language in Huddersfield and the surrounding area
Enfin : Les réunions en face-à face ont repris
Members of the circle are francophiles and lovers of the French language living in Huddersfield and the surrounding area. We meet for a talk (and refreshments), usually on the second Wednesday of each month, and a number of social events are also held during the summer months.
Our second post lockdown live meeting took place on Wednesday evening, during which we enjoyed a very personal talk by circle member Nic Wimpenny who spoke about his father’s journey from the D day beaches across France during the second world war.
Our speaker in December will be Anita Mandl, who as a tour guide has led tours to many countries including in particular India. Anita will be talking about her life and some interesting events which have occurred on these tours.
Meetings are currently taking place at Brian Jackson House, New North Parade, Huddersfield HD 5JP, although we hope to be back in the Town Hall in the New Year.
Whilst the start time for the actual presentation will be as before i.e 7.30 pm - we would urge everyone to arrive as soon as they are able after 7.00 pm and for those who wish to partake of a beverage, these will be served before the meeting rather than after. This is to ensure that we can vacate the premises by 9.00 pm
Full details of the programme for the rest of 2021-2022 can be found on the "Forthcoming Programme" tab on this website.
If you have any concerns about the arrangements at the new venue, social distancing, masks and such like, do please contact one of the committee or write to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
