Meet people, do stuff.

Our aim is to promote and share with you the language, arts, literature, theatre, cuisine, and culture of France with regular events throughout the year.

Our goals: 

  • Create a community for St Andrews students reading French, that doubles as a place for French expats in order for both groups to meet and exchange. 
  • Provide a space for diverse individuals through alternative and creative regular social events, to encourage exchange and networking in French or in English, drawing from the rich history and diversity of French culture to provide an exciting backdrop for both members and non-members.
  • Share French culture, current news, and language through our social media and events.
  • Set up unique events, from our annual play to evening parties, with fresh ideas flown in straight from France to entertain.

Our events:

  • Bavardage:  our regular pub night for French conversation! All levels and years are welcome. Bavardage is a casual setting for you to chat and practice speaking french with no pressure. No need for vocabulary perfection- we will all be making little mistakes!  Come join us for a friendly discussion of your favourite French word, the last time you spoke French, or anything else you'd like to discuss around a pint of cidre (ou un verre de vin!). 
  • Cinéclub: our monthly movie night event! Every month we will be showing a French movie in the original language (and with English subtitles!) to promote French culture through the diversity of its cinema.
  • The French play: the society puts on a different play every spring. People who wish to audition must speak French, however there is no need to be native or fluent, so whatever your level is, reach out to our play officer if you're interested! There will be no auditions.
  • Wine and Cheese Nights: Later in the semester, we gather around some good food and company!
  • Ball'delaire: Our brand new tradition, an extravagant end of year ball with a tailor-made playlist of your choice ;) 
  • Et bien plus!: in the past, we've had French desserts cooking classes, litterature classes, poetry nights etc

Our membership is only for the entire year, which gives you free entrance or discounted price to our events.
