Week 33 2017


Come and enjoy the Franco British Week from 19 to 26 August in the Pays Foyen. Now in its 12th year and unique in France, bringing together our two communities with a scintillating programme of art, music, air flights, wine, cinema, visits, theatre, sports, quiz, darts and Karaoke-BBQ evenings and not forgetting the grand picnic and the “Red and Gold” finale.  The week starts with a bang – the week long art exhibition in Salle Clarisse Brian in Ste. Foy la Grande at 12.30pm, kayaking in Port Ste Foy from 2pm, La Fete du Pain in Ponchapt from 2pm to 6pm and a fun BBQ-Karaoke evening at 8pm at La Petite Auberge, Margueron.  For full details of times and reservations see the programme.
Programmes are in the local stores and mairies or go to the web site and follow The Franco British Week for the full programme, or for more information 

Whatever you do this week in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, have a great time.

Best wishes,
