2013 Bastille Festival in Bankside

Celebrate La Fête Nationale at central London's largest Free 14th July festivities!

FOR THE 6TH YEAR THE FRENCH SPIRIT TAKES BANKSIDE BY STORM! 

Welcome to our extravaganza! Bastille Festival is London’s largest free celebration of France’s national day. We look forward to welcoming you on Sunday 14th July from midday to 10pm in and around Borough Market.

Check out the festival programme for information on the day’s events. This year’s festival features educational workshops, cultural presentations, promenading tours, waiters’ races, bi-lingual storytelling, face painting, loto and snail racing. Plus an artisan craft market and the finest French food from Borough Market’s traders and Bankside’s famous restaurants. The celebrations will continue into the night at the Bal Populaire, a traditional open air party with live music, theatrical spectacles, DJs, outdoor eating, drinking, dancing and singing.

Devised by London’s French community in association with Southwark Playhouse and presented in partnership with Better Bankside and Borough Market.
