Bastille Day 2014 in Cape Town

July 14 marks the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille prison in Paris in 1789, which was symbolic of the French people’s first victory over the monarchy and that would usher France into its modern era. The Bastille event set the stage for the French Revolution.

The French Consulate of Cape Town organized a reception at the Mount Nelson Hotel for the occasion, with the help of local and private groups to make Bastille Day 2014 a memorable celebration for French and South Africans.

The Consul’s speech is available here.

We would like to thank each one of our sponsors for their precious contribution:
