July 2018

Soirée  –  Places to visit, places to see

Our July soirée will have you getting out your maps and organising your next visit to France. We have invited six of our members to present their favourite things about France – and give us an insight into what was a stand-out experience for them in France.

The six short talks will cover such things as favourite restaurants or a memorable meal, a special château, church or place to visit, a stand-out region or town, or just one aspect of what made their visit to France exceptional.

When:  Friday, July 27, 2018

So come along on Friday, July 27 to hear what impressed our members – and enjoy an evening of armchair travel or even take notes on the suggestions for your bucket list when you next visit France.

See our July newsletter for further information.

 

 

Bastille Day Ball / Le bal du quartorze juillet

This will be a ‘stand out’ evening at the Ballarat Mining Exchange when we celebrate ‘Le quartorze juillet’ in style with the mesmerising gypsy jazz band, ‘La mauvaise reputation’ and a French DJ.

The ball has been organised by the Ballarat Art Gallery Association and Alliance Franҫaise de Ballarat as a celebration of not just the French National Day, but the gallery’s winter blockbuster exhibition ‘Into Light’, showing paintings from the Musée de la Chartreuse in Douaï, a major regional gallery northern France.

The theme for dress is ‘a touch of Bleu Blanc Rouge’ – and that may be interpreted any way you like!

Eiffel tower and fireworks

So come and mark this special day with a warm welcome in the depths of a Ballarat winter – and a complimentary drink on your arrival.

When:  Saturday, July 14, 2018

Tickets at $50 each are available from the Ballarat Art Gallery or at www.artgalleryofballarat.com.au and there are several tables set aside for Alliance members.
