In honour of France’s national day, the free festival will be a celebration of French food and culture.

Expect magicians and street performers, live music, the classic French game of boules and a French feast with Borough Market traders serving culinary delights from crepes to comté. In the true spirit of the French revolution there will be a guillotine provided by The London Tombs. Festivities will continue into the night with the Bal Populaire – a traditional open air party.

Bastille Festival is supported by Better BanksideFrançais du Monde and Borough Market. For more information head to the Visit Bankside website.
