Media Release | 2017 Bastille Day Celebration

    WA  | 

    For this years’ edition, the French- Australian Chamber of Commerce has combined with the Alliance Francaise to celebrate Bastille Day, kindly hosted at the University of Western Australia’s (UWA) Tavern in Crawley.

    This event was held on July 14th, the French national day. Blue, white and red colours were worn by our guests and a convivial atmosphere presided all night. Many decorations fostered the French spirit and created a cultural atmosphere.

    Our 80 guests had the pleasure of tasting traditional and contemporary French cuisine, the petit four concluded with the famous macarons. All guests were greeted with champagne and had the opportunity to have their picture taken in front of a popular French café decor.

    We were honoured to have the representative of the Premier Mark McGowan, Simon Millman MLA, along with Dr Michael Nahan, Leader of the Opposition.

    Our WA accordionist Nikki D’Agostino opened the event with an exemplary accordion performance, followed by the entertainment Mauritian band ‘Hot Suga.’

    Carine Bougnague Director of the Alliance Francaise and our President of FACCI WA Christine Caseris highlighted in their speeches the importance of celebrating our French Culture through the words: “Liberty, Equality and Fraternity” in a time where terrorism has hurt France. Liberty also owed to the 45,000 Australian diggers who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of France during World War I.

    Fraternity, was held up high on that night and we could see the camaraderie amongst our guests.

    We would like to thank all the guests who attended our Bastille Day celebration, the UWA Tavern for the fabulous service, Nikki d’Agostino for her super performance and Hot Suga for the lively ambiance.
