The Bastille Day Festival returns to Reading's Forbury Gardens Enjoy a FREE, fun and activity-filled family day out, experience our joie de vivre and celebrate Bastille Day with us in the beautiful surroundings of Reading's Forbury Gardens on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th July 2013
There will be something for everyone at the two-day Bastille 2013 event. If you love good food and wine and you are an enthusiast, you will enjoy the French food market where you will find a wide range of quality regional produce, but not only limited to France. Food & wine Tastings are also planned to whet your appetite and bring you a new experience. Culture-buffs and Francophiles will enjoy the French Theatre, and the whole family, especially the younger ones, will love the fun events like snail racing, the tennis and a whole host of exciting activities provided by Decathlon and our other sponsors.
"We want it (The Bastille Day Festival) to become an established community event - but not just for the French – we want it to encompass everybody" Frederic Kayrouz (Bastille Day Reading co-founder)
