AGLR NEWS AND VIEWS
Summer's here and the first wave of festivals is underway in Sète. Members could be seen around town working as volunteers at Escale à Sète and Images Singulières. Countless other festivals including jazz and poetry are to follow.
On Sète's social scene, Christina Rabaste hosted a standing-room-only Soirée Jazz and vernissage at her atelier. Members can be found most Wednesdays at Zanzi-Bar, a popular jazz hotspot, Remember Lucien, the blues singer at last year's North America Day party? Well he now sings regularly at Chez Mélo, which serves excellent pizza too.
Several members celebrated Shakespeare's 400th anniversary at the British Cultural Association's Shakespeare Extravaganza in Montpellier. The programme included a quiz, extracts from Shakespeare's plays and much more. Many thanks to our friends at the BCA.
Also on our calendar is tea and English/French conversation in B'Cosse, a Scottish tea/Belgian chocolate shop in Montpellier. And on the first Thursday of each month (except July and August) we are invited to join BCA members for a pint in O'Carolan's Irish pub in the centre of Montpellier.
Upcoming highlights include our annual North America Day barbecue on 2 July, when we will celebrate Canadian and US independence. Many thanks to William Gallab for hosting this event' - also to Catherine Vaskova for inviting members for cocktails on 28 June. Shortly we will be announcing plans to celebrate France's Bastille Day with a grandstand view of the fireworks in Sète.
Weekly Thursday coffee mornings at Brasserie Victor Hugo always draw a crowd and Bénédicte continues to offer her popular cooking classes. Equally popular are Ole Pedersen weekly hikes, which are on hiatus from now until September.
