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 Comptat Venaissin". The city of Carpentras gives an annual subsidy and allows to use a meeting room in the “Maison du Citoyen” - the house of the citizen which hosts all Carpentras associations for regular meetings and get-togethers. The regular conversation meetings are now held each Tuesday afternoon, except during the school holidays.

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. Annual average membership over the past eight years has been over 85 people. A total of 113 people have been members of the Association in year 2004. Today, in 2019, the association has 50 regular members.

Every two to three months, a newsletter, in French and in English is distributed to members by mail or e.mail and posted on this web site, recalling past events and proposing the programme for coming months.
