Bastille Day FestivalBastille Day, 14th July, falls on a Monday this year so London celebrates France's national day with a free festival on Sunday 13th. 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 (yum) through tastings and a French themed demonstration kitchen. A fun filled programme of activities includes street entertainment, a traditional 14th July Waiters' Race, Petanque, an artisan craft market selling gifts and books, creative workshops, party games, bi-lingual storytelling, face painting and (back to what the French do best) gastronomic film screenings, from the Kings of Pastry to Ratatouille. The party continues into the night with live music, DJs, theatricalities, dancing and singing until 10pm.

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
