What we're about

We are a friendly group of French learners and native speakers who get together to speak French in a relaxed environment. We meet on the last Wednesday of every month in a bar in the centre of Royston for a drink and chat. Every level of French is welcome (but no under 18s, sorry)!

We meet at 7pm but feel free to turn up later if it suits you. We will have a reserved table with a meetup sign so that we are easy to find (or just ask at the bar).

On arrival, the Organisers will welcome you and sign you in. There is no annual membership fee and these events are FREE but we would appreciate an optional contribution (£1) to help cover the cost of running the group.

Please be sure to always RSVP to meetups you intend to join, so that we get an idea of numbers and other people are encouraged to come along too (you can always cancel if you can no longer make it).

If you’re looking to meet more international friends, you may also like to join our Royston International Group https://www.meetup.com/Royston-International-Group/ for people of all nationalities to come together and have some fun!

And if you are looking for even more French conversation then you might like to check out this group in Hitchin - https://www.meetup.com/Hitchin-French-Language-Meetup

We look forward to meeting you! À bientôt!

Royston French Language Meetup

Banyers House

Come along and practise your French in a friendly and relaxed environment - all levels are welcome! We will be in the lounge bar at Banyers House in Royston from 7pm. If you want to turn up a little later that’s no problem, and feel free to leave whenever you like. Please introduce yourself to us when you arrive, we can then welcome you and sign you in. Don’t be shy - say hello and start chatting (in French, of course!) to lots of new people! This meetup is free to attend but if you want to support us we would welcome an optional contribution (£1 suggested) to help cover our costs of hosting on Meetup. If you want to join then please RSVP so that we know how many people to expect. There is limited free parking at Banyers but the Civic Centre (Town Hall) car park is free, a very short walk away from Banyers, and has ~200 spaces. For those coming by train, Banyers is about a 10 minute walk from Royston station. Just a reminder that as we will be in a bar the event is for over 18s over. Also we will take a few photos during the event to put on the Meetup and Facebook pages – if you don’t want us to use a photo with you in then just let us know. We look forward to seeing you and if you have any questions, please get in touch! À bientôt! Rob & Stefania
