Wed 2 - Sun 20 Dec

Welcome Back to the Institut francais

Dear lovers of French culture and language,

Great news: the Institut français reopens!

From Wednesday 2 December you will enjoy again the best of cinema in the spacious Ciné Lumière and the amazing collections of the Médiathèque via the Click & Collect service.

The Cultural Centre is open, from 2 to 20 December, 5 days a week, from Wednesday to Sunday.

Visitors can access the building using the 15 Queensberry Place temporary entrance (instead of the main entrance on 17), as we are currently renovating the Institut’s foyer to enhance your experience and comfort.

Doors open 20 minutes before each screening and the Click & Collect service will be available from 1.30pm to 6pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Our French courses continue and we are getting ready for the new term starting on 11 January, with classes both onsite and online. Make learning French your next year resolution!

All the strict hygiene and social distancing measures in line with government guidance are in place for your safe return to the Institut.

Have a look at the reopening programme!

Stay safe, stay tuned and see you back soon onsite, online, or both!
