And More

In addition to the activities already listed, we also propose:

Christmas Party and Quiz! SATURDAY 3 DECEMBER: 7.30 pm

As we all know, December is the month of the Christmas party! Therefore, it is time for the ESC to get partying too! This year, we would love for you all to come and celebrate with us at Joëlle and Olivier’s.

The party will be an opportunity for us all to don our ‘glad rags’ for an evening of glamour! You can wear whatever makes you feel glamorous and special! Dress ‘up’ as much as you want, it’s totally up to you! The main thing is that we want everyone to be a part of what is certain to be a really enjoyable evening. At this red carpet event, all of our wonderful ESC members will be the stars of the show!

The theme of the quiz is ‘Glamour’, led by Véronique and Terence. So, brush up on your knowledge of the Fashion World. Think Hollywood, think Designer, think Icons! 

 Food and drinks will be provided at a subsidised price of €12 for members, €15 for their guests. Adults only event. Please sign up here ChristmasParty

Burns supper

End of January every year, the ESC honours the life and work of the Scottish poet Robert Burns. Guests enjoy a traditional Scottish 3-course menu including the famous McSweens’s haggis. Live musicians on stage for the ceilidh dancing together with the pipers provide musical interludes throughout the evening. A real treat!

Burns Supper 2023 – Saturday 21 January 2023- 7pm 

Book your places for the Burns Supper and Ceilidh which will take place in the usual venue, ESCO, rue du Cimetière, 67850 Offendorf at 19h00 sharp. We will once again have live musicians on stage for the Ceilidh dancing, as well as pipers to provide musical interludes throughout the evening. 

Guests will enjoy a traditional Scottish 3-course menu including the famous McSween’s haggis with wine, water and a wee dram for the toasts. Additional drinks will be available at the cash bar. As always this is an event for over-16s only to allow the adults a well-deserved evening out unburdened by the little ones and to avoid any mishaps on the dance floor. 

Places are available to ESC members at the early-bird discounted price of 40 euros until November 20th, after which date they will be on general sale at 45 euros. As usual it’s expected to be an early sell-out so don’t delay booking. 

Register with Maggie at mvautheny@esc-alsace.org and make your cheques payable to ESC. Your places are confirmed by email on receipt of your cheque.

Annual barbecue

A golden opportunity to connect with old friends and meet with new people in the relaxed atmosphere of the garden of l’Escale. Good food, games for the kids and mellow jazz contribute in making this such a worthwhile experience. Our annual summer barbecue took place on Sunday 26 June.

Picnics

The scenic outdoors of the “Orangerie” in Strasbourg are the perfect setting for our autumn family picnic.  You bring your own food and we provide for the entertainment and an awesome afternoon together.

and much more… like for instance

… Impro nights

Theatrical improvisation, impro, is a good opportunity for live practice of the English language, in a fun games format which can appeal to natives and fluent non-natives, even if they have no experience or ambition in theatre. You will be smoothly guided by Nikki to act in several role-playing exercises with an emphasis on spontaneity. Just be ready to let mental barrier down to tap into your creative side! The group (4 to 8 persons) meets in turn from 7-9 pm at the private homes of the participants. For directions and signing-up for our next two hours session, please contact events@esc-alsace.org. 

For all our get-togethers, it is recommended to have a good command

of the English language.
