The French Circle meets on the first Wednesday of every month from September to May, in 10A South Grove.

We are a group of local residents who have a love of France and all French-speaking countries and who are happy to put our French to use in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.  Our meetings are open to anyone able and willing to converse in French, as all our proceedings are in that language.  We are very tolerant of rusty language skills!

 Our activities range from illustrated talks to discussion evenings, with the occasional piano recital or evening of simple quiz-like games.  At Christmas and Epiphany we sing the appropriate songs together, with piano accompaniment, and enjoy a feast of good things to eat.

 We charge £10 entry (cash only) which always includes snacks, wine and juice.  If you join our e-mail mailing list you will get personal notification of our meetings, and all our events are published in the Highgate Society’s e-newsletter. We can be contacted direct at
