France Around the World

In light of the current lockdown and recent NSW Health recommendations, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone this event. This is not a cancellation as we are committed to rescheduling the event (including the raffle) later in the year, hopefully in late August.

We, like you, are disappointed that we won’t be able to celebrate on July 14 but we look forward to welcoming you all for an evening of dance, music, celebration and culture in the near future, when it is possible to do so. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will be in touch with more information very soon. 

In 2021, we're celebrating Bastille Day a little bit differently - discover this year's theme France Around the World.

With widespread travel restrictions still in place, we're hosting a special edition of Bastille Day that will transport you not only to France, but to all the corners of the globe. Travel with us to France, West Africa, Tahiti and New Caledonia in a celebratory evening of music, cocktails, fun and festivities.

Feel the rhythm of Afrobeat dance music with a live 5-piece band performance led by legendary Malian guitarist Moussa Diakite; dance and sing-a-long to all your favourite French hits during an entertaining set from Parisian-born DJ Madame Rêve ; enjoy thrilling performances by French Polynesian and Cancan dancers; go in the draw to win fantastic prizes throughout the evening and so much more!

So, what are you waiting for? Stamp your passport and climb aboard - c'est la fête!
