La French Week is a monster party happening throughout Brisbane from Monday, 9 July until Sunday, 15 July, 2018 which includes Bastille Day celebrations on Saturday, 14 July.

Working in conjunction with the Brisbane City Council Libraries Alliance Francaise has arranged some wonderful events especially for the youngsters or, as they say in France, "Voici ce qu'il y a pour les enfants".

Each event has a focus that ensures children are learning something new in a way that provides fun and laughter. The group activities offer a sense of encouragement likely to stay with them and foster a desire to learn more.
