ASSOCIATION CULTURELLE FRANCO-BRITANNIQUE
DU COMTAT VENAISSIN

 

History of our Association

The Association was created in 1985 by a small group of English people who met in a private home each Thursday to improve their ability to speak French. Soon, newcomers joined and meetings were held in Carpentras cafés.

Several years later, the association received official recognition by French authorities and became then the "Association Culturelle Franco-Britannique du Comtat Venaissin". The city of Carpentras gives an annual subsidy and allows to use meeting rooms in the "Maison du Citoyen" - the house of the citizen which hosts all Carpentras associations for regular meetings and get-togethers. Each Tuesday afternoon, we meet there for conversations and practicing English and French languages.

Over the years, we have had several hundred members, French people from Carpentras' area and Anglophones from European countries, the United States and Canada and distant countries including New Zealand and South Africa. We count amongst our members residents in foreign countries, such as the United Kingdom.

Current membership amounts to nearly 70 regular members.
