Virtual Doors Open Days 2020

From 26 to 27 September

Founded in 1946, the Institut français d’Ecosse is the Scottish outpost of the French Embassy in the United Kingdom. Within its Edinburgh base, it combines:

- A cultural venue with a seventy-seat theatre for shows, concerts, theatre plays, conferences, cinema screenings, and an art gallery
- A French-language centre with about 1,500 students per year, more than 150 classes and 15 teachers
- A resource centre with our multimedia library

The Institut français d’Ecosse and the Consulate General of France in Edinburgh have been for the past six years participating in Doors Open Days, which invites people to discover Edinburgh’s architectural and cultural heritage for free.

This year, the event coordinated by the Cockburn Association in Edinburgh will take place online and we have decided to open the doors of our building on West Parliament Square to the public via an online virtual tour.

The virtual tour will offer you insights into the building exactly as if you were here. The video’s premiere will be accessible on Saturday 26 September at 10:00 (below or directly on our Youtube channel).
