Mark the date Saturday, November 30, in your diary as it promises to be an end-of-year event you won’t want to miss.

Beaujolais Nouveau is traditionally released in France on November 21 and shared at the end of the year’s harvest. Enjoy a relaxed social evening with lots of fun, food and French music.

Sample a glass or two of Beaujolais Nouveau with delicious platters of French charcuterie, cheeses, vegetable tarts, salads, baguettes and desserts.

Numbers are limited, so to make sure you are one of the first to taste this year’s Beaujolais Nouveau, you will need to book soon, through the Trybooking link

Tickets $50 each; Alliance Française de Ballarat members $40.




October soirée

‘In the Footsteps of Atget’ – Artist’s Talk by Julie Mahnken

A practising artist and member of Alliance Franҫaise de Ballarat, Julie will speak about her artwork and explorations in Paris in 2018.

Her project draws on the tradition of the artist’s travel journal and was undertaken to discover sites captured by the photographer Eugene Atget in the early 1900s.


Atget’s evocative Black and White images record a Paris that was disappearing in his time. Many sites exist now only as images, yet some have endured in physical reality.

Atget photos

Through sketches and photographs made around the city, Julie’s work retraces some of those remaining sites as well as other hidden places, exploring the nature of time through the mediums of charcoal and ink.

Details of the soirée are available through the October newsletter.
