French Ambassador Hélène Duchêne has launched the 120th anniversary celebrations of the Entente Cordiale on Tuesday 23 January 2023 at the French Residence.


The Entente Cordiale is an agreement signed in 1904 between the UK and French governments that improved bilateral relations.

Alongside the French Embassy and together with British and French partners, the Institut français du Royaume-Uni, will celebrate the Entente Cordiale all year long, with a series of events and new initiatives highlighting our strong ties and nurturing our relationship further.
