2016 FRENCH Xmas Market
Come and enjoy a French weekend at the one and only Alliance Française de Melbourne’s Eildon Mansion in St Kilda! This two-day FREE event is family friendly and an ideal destination for young and old.
The market will showcase French products, food, wine, music and offer a range of free and 'gold coin donation' activities for adults and children: facepainting, balloon twisting, children's activities, photo booth, cocktail demonstrations, French second hand books, free French trial classes and level assessments, singing, theatre etc. and some special workshops: French spirit masterclass (Armagnac vs Whisky), jewellery making, polymer clay and magic shows!
Call for volunteers: part of the success of our market is the fabulous contribution from our team of volunteers.
If you want to participate as a volunteer for a great French weekend, apply now by filling in our online application form here.
We have your little ones covered with plenty of fun and creative activities over the weekend!
Reserve your place now for one of our magic shows or for our polymer clay, badge making, or cake decorating workshops. Transformed yourself for the day with face painting and hair braiding, have fun at the game of ‘pêche à la ligne’ (fishing game) and visit our balloon twister extraordinaire who will be working hard on fabulous creations.
For those young at heart, there will also be plenty to do!
Stroll around the market and find that impressive Xmas pressie, try out one of our free French language trial classes, and attend our free cocktail or éclair patisserie demonstrations or our masterclass that will take you on a captivating journey to the world of Armagnac versus Whisky. And bien sûr, take the time to relax and sit down to some delicious French food and wine just after you’ve had your photo taken at our photo booth!
