Montparnasse travels the world!

Are you travelling abroad in 2024? Take montparnasse with you! 

To celebrate the 140th anniversary of our network, we are delighted to introduce you to our mascot, Montparnasse, named after 'Gare Montparnasse' (where our Director found him over the last holidays)!

He is a bit like a French-speaking Paddington: an explorer who wants to discover the world and especially visit as many Alliances Françaises as possible in this very special year!  

So, when travelling abroad, bring him with you, take his picture in front of an Alliance Française and win a pot of French jam as a thank you!

We will publish your photos and details of his travels on this page!

Ask at reception for more information.
