Celebrate La Fête Nationale at central London's largest Free 12th July festivities!
Bankside, 12th June 2015 — For the eighth year running, Bankside and Borough Market are hosting London’s largest free Bastille Day Festival to celebrate France’s national day with an extravaganza of all things French. The party starts a couple of days early on Sunday 12th July in and around the beautiful surroundings of London’s historic food market, Borough Market.
The Bastille Festival in Borough Market was initially created by Kath Serkis from Southwark Playhouse and Jamal Bendghoughi from La Cave restaurant taking place in the restaurant terrace eight years ago. Over the years Kath helped grow the festival, building relationships with Better Bankside, Borough Market, London’s French community and local businesses.
In 2014, the French organisation Français du monde, under Morgane Marot’s direction, built on this well established event. Now in it’s eighth year, “Fête du 14 juillet” is bigger than ever.
