La Troupe Arlequin presents 'DICK WHITTINGTON'
A traditional English pantomime (oh yes, it is!) about a poor boy heading to London. The Fairy Bow-bells promises him a fortune if he is honest, and his true love if he is worthy. But is it really that simple? (oh no, it isn't!) The Pantomime Dame, Miss Cecily Suet, is jealous of Dick, the Mayor of London is angry and the rats are causing mayhem! And all of them are plotting to get rid of Dick and his cat. It seems impossible that he obtains what the Fairy has predicted. Collège Notre Dame, 4 rue Saint Gilles, 22570 Gouarec at 19h30 Friday and Saturday and 14h30pm Sunday. Doors open 45 minutes in advance. Bar and refreshments available.

Tickets 5€ adult, 3€ child. Tickets from AIKB from 3rd December.

Conference - Getting into the French System
Maggie will talk about approaches to integration into life in Brittany and will go through the most important steps that you need to take to get things in place administratively. This will be useful to members who have just arrived, to those who have been here a while, but are not sure they have understood the system or done everything necessary, and to people who are considering moving to France on a permanent basis. For members only. No charge.

Please reserve, as numbers are limited. AIKB, 3 rue du Sénéchal, 22570 Gouarec. 10h30 to noon.
