Dear friends,
It is with great joy that I welcome you, in my new role as Présidente du Cercle français de Belfast, to another year of cultural events.

Last year, the Cercle managed to weather the storm of the pandemic by providing a great variety of online presentations.  Once again, we are taking up the challenge of offering you another varied programme based on French culture and language.  As the year looks uncertain again, the Cercle committee has decided to offer its events through a hybrid or "blended learning" format.  This means that talks will either be online, in person or perhaps both allowing us to take account of any health restrictions applying to The Dark Horse venue.  We will get there as soon as we can!  This greater flexibility will also help us to keep in touch with all our new members who live in the four corners of Northern Ireland and who have discovered us through the virtual meetings.

We will be launching our new programme with an online event, a Pôt de l'amitié over a Touraine wine experience.  We are also planning some additional events so be sure that you are subscribed to our monthly email newsletter and remember to follow us on social media.  In the meantime, and on behalf of all the Cercle français de Belfast committee, I'd like to thank you for your continued support and friendship.

Happy reading!

Patricia HARDIMAN, Présidente
