A series of works to renovate and modernise the premises is currently ongoing at the Alliance Française. Please note that la galerie and la médiathèque will be closed from 20 to 25 August. The works will end early September and you will soon be able to discover a whole new Alliance Française with improved facilities and a new Café relocated at the 1st floor (le café Diabolo) for an even better experience. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused during the works and we look forward to showing you the new and upgraded Alliance Française.
