Welcome to the Balcombe French Association!

Whether it’s for the food, the wine, holidays, buildings, scenery, sunshine, history, cycling, language or the people, whatever it is, if you love France, we want to know about it. We want to help and encourage the people of Balcombe to continue enjoying the things they already know and to discover a bit more of the things they don’t yet know. We are here to celebrate a relationship with our closest European neighbour.


We hold regular events such as wine tasting, trips to France and French themed social occasions. This year we’re planning a coach trip to Le Touquet in September for all the family as well as our ever popular Bubbly & Boules day in July where we’ll serve you with a continental style brunch and a glass of fizz to get you in the mood for the boules competition.

Membership is open to everyone, whether you live in Balcombe or not. If you would like to find out more, have a look at forthcoming activities on this website or get in touch with anyone on the committee. Or if you have ideas of other things you think we could do, or if you would like to prepare a talk or host an event, please let us know.

We look forward to welcoming you, and look out for our stall at the village fête on Bastille day!
