More on the Table Ronde....

This event is for everyone and anyone interested in French language and culture to join this conference table-rond to share in an open discussion about French culture in London. A free event on Thursday 11th October at 3pm.

How should we celebrate, publicise and support the diverse range of French language cultural acitivity already taking place in London?

How can we encourage more French language performances and events to take place in the city?

How useful would it be to have an annual festival of French theatre and how could we make this happen?

How do I get involved?

*By population. The French Consulate estimates 300-400,000 French nationals in London (population of Nice: 344,000).
London's LSE argues this figure is nationwide, and puts London around the 20th largest French City. Still, that's a lot; n'est-ce pas?
