Bastille Day Party at La Cave

6-14 July sees a week long celebration of all things French in the environs of Borough Market culminating in a Bastille Day party outside La Cave Restaurant, Cafe Brood and Brew Cafe in recognition of the 220th anniversary of France's National Day.

La Cave will host traditional accordion street music and song with Les Apaches and 30s and 40s Gypsy/Swing/Jazz with Le QuecumBar Allstars. A la carte dining, classic French fayre-charcuterie and fromage platters, outdoor rotisserie and bar will be available.

Cafe Brood will be joining in the fun of the fĂȘte with 'street' entertainers, French food and drink and some Bastille Day surprises with the French market stall Le Marche du Quartier.

The party atmosphere will continue on the terrace of Brew Cafe with traditional bal musette performers leading a java dance contest for the chance to win a bottle of bubbly, give-away sketches by fin-de-siecle artist performers from The Drawing Room, a chocolate-giving femme fatale and a guillotine spectacle. Saucisson and more French favourites will be available too.

]Win a Eurostar weekend to Paris!

To experience the real thing party goers will be able to enter to win a trip to Paris with Concorde Hotels & Resorts and Eurostar. In just 2h15 minutes from St. Pancras International, Eurostar's magnificently restored station you will reach the heart of Paris. The smoothest, most stress-free way to travel to France.

To take part party-goers should dress in the spirit of the event - 220 years of low-life and high-society French fashion - the best attired, as judged by celebrity guest Andrew Logan, will win a weekend break with Eurostar and Concorde Hotels & Resorts! The prize for 2 includes return Eurostar tickets and a night at the luxurious Hotel du Louvre (a Concorde Hotel) located in the heart of Paris, with breakfast and dinner at the prestigious Brasserie du Louvre included.
