Bastille Day FestivalBastille Day, 14th July, falls on a Thursday this year so London celebrates France's national day with a free festival on Sunday 10th. Taking place at Borough Market and the surrounding streets, the Bastille Day Festival, a celebration of all things French, gives us Londoners an excuse to enjoy the culinary heritage of our French friends through tastings and a French themed demonstration kitchen. A fun-filled programme of activities includes street entertainment, traditional waiter's races, Parisian folk music, a live gypsy jazz and swing band, and petanque playing.

About Borough Market

Nestled in-between Borough High Street, Bedale Street, Stoney Street and Winchester Walk lives "London's Larder", more formally known as Borough Market. This gourmand's delight is London's oldest food market and boasts a mouth-watering range of fresh food stalls under its Dickensian wrought-iron roof. More about Borough Market
