Michael Brammagh after his presentation on Wednesday 13th January 2016 - for another picture taken from his presentation have a look at Past Events


Huddersfield French Circle welcomes anyone with a love of France and its language and culture who has access to Huddersfield Town Hall once a month and who has some knowledge of the French language.
We meet for a presentation given in French on a diverse range of subjects, some but not all related to France, followed by conversation with other Circle members in French or in English whichever is your preference.
Most Circle members are English but we do have one regular French attendee and long standing member and welcome others from time to time. New members are most welcome but just come along as a Visitor one month to see if you meetings are of interest to you. You can find out more about the 'when' and 'where' on the Venue page - click on the link on the right.

What a fantastic start we had to our new season in September when Jeannette Short gave a wonderful presentation on the French politician Simone Weil. There were so many 'firsts' in Madame Weil's career that it was difficult to keep track but she was obviously a very determined yet caring politician. We now all recommend reading Simone's autobiography 'Une Vie'.

By contrast, on Wednesday 9th October our presentation will be a presentation about 'La Pétanque' given by Paul Simkins.
I am sure we have all had a go at this beneath the shade of trees in a lovely corner of France somewhere. No doubt we shall find out what we have been doing wrong! Paul will tell us where we can 'perfectionner' our game here in the UK too.


As always our gatherings will take place at the Town Hall at 7.30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of the month unless otherwise indicated.
