Join the British Community Committee

Is there an English-speaking association, society or club catering to the British community where you live in France, but not yet listed here? If so, we’d like to hear from them. Why not ask their Chairman or a committee member to contact the British Community Committee by e-mailing us on

The British Community Committee (BCC), founded in 1937, represents the British Community in France. It was first registered as a Loi 1901 association on 1 July 1939. It has two categories of members:

The BCC is the umbrella organisation of British Associations in France at national level. It operates under the registered logo britishinfrance and publicises the existence of its Members so that British citizens in France, or those with British interests, know whom to contact to join. It co-ordinates the activities of the British in France by collecting information on events being organised by Member associations, highlighting potential clashes of dates between events, and communicating the list to Members.

Any Association in France or Monaco with a British link is welcome to apply to join the BCC.

Admission is granted to successful applicants following a presentation of the association to a Quarterly Meeting. The annual membership subscription is €20.
