Bastille Day Festival Reading is the perfect event to celebrate the friendship and cultural ties between England, France and the UK and EU.

by Boubacar Dembele in Reading, England, United Kingdom

At a time when the UK is pondering leaving the EU, Bastille Day Festival Reading is, as always, the perfect event to celebrate the friendship and cultural ties between England, France and the rest of the UK and the EU. It is one the events that makes Reading such a cosmopolitan and welcoming town.

The event was started by three French nationals, Vincent Valère, Frédéric Kayrouz, Boubacar Dembélé, who have been living in Reading for years and decided that it was time to give back to the town that adopted them so generously. What best way to achieve that goal than organizing a French themed event around Bastille Day?

This 11th & 12th July 2020 from 12pm till 5pm, visitors can expect an opportunity to get together and enjoy a great selection of food & beverages provided by Master Crepes and Deliciously French among many others. There will also be free & fun activities provided with the support of HobbyCraft, Decathlon, Owen’s Animals and other fantastic stands. Last, but not least, there will be a programme of free dancing and live singing performances provided by artists, locals and from France, thanks to WaveSounds stage and sound system.  

If financially sustainable, the event will recreate the atmosphere of a French Market, have fireworks, a pétanque competition, a local theatre performance and a short movie festival, mini Olympiads, a mini funfair and an even greater variety of workshops.

This time, the event is likely to take place in the final year of Brexit, and therefore, it is more important than ever to make Bastille Day Festival Reading 2020 an event that is more successful than it has ever been before. Let’s raise £2500 to help reduce the cost to the organiser who have been financing the event every year since 2020. Let’s raise another £5000 for the additions mentioned previously to be included this year. Let’s raise another £7500 to make Bastille 2020 the most grandiose, memorable and European event in Reading.

Even if you can’t help financially, make sure to book your weekend of the 11th and 12th of July 2019 and let’s get together to celebrate the meeting of cultures for another successful Bastille Festival Reading. Bring your whole family and tell your friends on Twitter, SnapChat, Instagram and Facebook - @bastille2012uk.
