London is the seventh largest French city, according to Nicholas Sarkozy, who became the first French presidential candidate to campaign outside France when he came here in 2007.  Some parts of London are crawling with those anglophile frenchies and the 14th of July is Bastille Day, the French national holiday, so this Sunday there is a Bastille Day Garden Party in Battersea Park.

The line up is a stereotype confirming celebration of all things gallic: food, wine, petanque, pastis, music, dancing, competitions, prizes and an afterparty.
