The International Congress is held in a different country every three years.  The theme of the Congress is decided by the organising country and covers a subject relating to women’s issues.  Three International Congresses have been held in the Netherlands, 1929 in the Hague and in 1977 and 2016 in Amsterdam.  In the intervening years between congresses cultural meetings are organised, again each time in a different country.  Clubs often have contacts with a sister club abroad.  Club members are always welcome in Lyceumclubs both at home and abroad.

Cultural Days 2021

The Cultural Days that were to have been held in Lisbon in September or October 2021 have been cancelled 

The Lisbon Lyceum Club has had to take the difficult decision of cancelling the 2021 Cultural Days.  Due to Corona it has been impossible to make any arrangements with hotels, museums etc.   All registration fees already paid will be refunded.

The BCI meeting will be held via Zoom on 27th and 28th September 2021

Congress 24-29 May 2022 in Rabat Morocco 


Ties of friendship, twinnings, exist between various clubs.  In 1992 the Amsterdam Lyceumclub twinned with the club in Brittany which has its base in Plerin.  The Lyceumclub in Groningen was twinned for many years with the club in Aix-la-Chapelle but sadly the club in Aix was disbanded in 2019.  In 2012 the Nijmegen Lyceumclub twinned with the club in Frankfurt Rhine-Main
