About this Event

Entente Cordiale Exhibition in City Hall

This free exhibition in French and in English is organised by the Institut français du Royaume-Uni, with the support of the French Embassy in the UK, and in partnership with the UK’s National Archives and the French Diplomatic Archives. It is part of a series of major celebratory events and new projects commemorating the signing of the 1904 agreements between the UK and French governments, which improved bilateral relations.
The exhibition traces the history of the Entente Cordiale agreements and their global repercussions.
Visitors will discover remarkable documents (archives, cartoons etc.) which will immerse them in the Belle Époque and the diplomatic negotiations which aimed at building peace between the two countries.
The exhibition has been curated by Dr Charlotte Faucher (University of Bristol) and Dr Guillaume Perissol(Institut français du Royaume-Uni).

“The agreements, which we now referred to as the Entente Cordiale, were significant in appeasing long-lasting Franco-British tensions and they are central to our understanding of twentieth-century Europe” says Charlotte Faucher
