The Association Open Door exists to encourage the practical exchange of cultural information
and experience between French and English-speaking people residing permanently or part-time
in the Limousin and surrounding areas.
We do this in two ways:-
An English-language library with a stock of some 5000 books and DVDs and branches in St.
Pardoux-Morterolles and Bourganeuf
A wide range of cultural activities which enable people to experience each other's traditions and
environments. To date these events have included visits to vineyards and places of historical
and environmental interest; guided ornithological walks in French and English; an exhibition of
paintings by Alastair Riley; Afternoon Teas; Burns Suppers; a celebration of the Beaujolais
Nouveau; an evening of Occitan music, and readings from JRR Tolkien in French and English.
We constantly try to co-operate with other associations and welcome approaches for joint
ventures from other similar organisations.
