Holding regular talks and events throughout the year, the Isle of Wight French Society meets monthly in Newport, and is open to anyone who knows enough of the language to follow talks in French
The Isle of Wight French Society, was formed in 1973 for the enjoyment, practice, and appreciation of the French language. It meets monthly at Holyrood Hall, High Street, Newport, ( opposite the Castle Inn ), or as shown in the programme.
Membership is open to anyone who knows enough of the language to follow talks in French. Meetings, other than business meetings, will be conducted in French.

The subscription to France-Wight is £40 per annum for individual membership, £47 for families, and £8 for full time students. School membership for sixth form students and their teachers is offered at £20 per annum.
Members may invite a guest on payment of £5 per meeting for a maximum of two meetings. Organised student parties, outside of holders of school membership above, will be welcome at special rate
