EALING’S TWIN TOWN IN FRANCE

The Friends of Marcq is a local group promoting friendship and activities between Ealing and Marcq-en-Baroeul, which is close to Lille, so easily accessible. Knowledge of French is not necessary for many of the organised events. We offer exchange visits to France for language and cultural weekends, staying with French hosts. There are also French classes at various levels, and a variety of activities throughout the year in Ealing.
