Programme - 2020 / 2021

The Mid-Sussex Franco-British Society’s scheduled programme for 2020-2021 having been curtailed in April 2020 owing to Coronavirus covid 19 pandemic restrictions, the Society became a member of a new grouping of UK-wide French cercles (Cercles Français Associés de GB) which came together to support members by sharing its French-speaking Zoom presentations. Access to a selection of these is being regularly passed to members of the Mid-Sussex Franco-British Society until the Society can resume its normal cultural and social activities.

Many of the speakers are high-quality professional conférenciers whom in normal circumstances our Society would find difficult to afford.   If you are not familiar with Zoom we would encourage you to learn how to link in to these talks so that you can benefit from this new source of knowledge and interest.  A member of the Committee is standing by to help so please let the Society know if you require any assistance.
