Bastille Day

Bastille Day is celebrated annually on July 14 in France and French-speaking regions around the world and in France it is a national holiday. 

Signifying the start of the French Revolution, more than 200 years on it's still a central event in the nation's calendar, with celebrations including military parades.

The storming of the Bastille prison by angry crowds in 1789 Paris may have been a violent day, but nowadays it's marked peacefully by millions.

Mr Gaido carried on the tradition at BSCA of celebrating the day with typical french pastries and hot chocolate being available to buy during breaktime in the Restaurant.
