“Joyeux Noël et Bonnes fêtes revelry” yesterday at the Launch of the BBR organized “LE JOLLY – FRENCH CHRISTMAS NIGHTS” Market at Customs House, Sydney


-Happy atmosphere and “Bonne Noel revelry” yesterday at the Launch of the BBR organized LE JOLLY ” FRENCH CHRISTMAS NIGHTS Market at Customs House precinct (Circular Quay) in Sydney.


The weather was sunny and the Christmas atmosphere was “pretty chilled” as BBR Director Vincent and his Team of Events Supremos feted his coterie of guests,…the Young Influencers and Bloggers of Sydney Social Media and Journalists of the Sydney Food and Events scene,..with French gastronomic delicacies and Xmas treats!

“Le Jolly Market will be a classic French winter night market, complete with wooden chalets, melted cheese stations, a glimmering Christmas tree – and yes, even falling snow –  although admittedly it isn’t really the season for it in Sydney right now. But hey, c’est la vie. 

There will be plentiful French wine on offer, as well a whole lot of French food stalls, with the likes of fresh crepes, cheese fondue, macarons, crème brûlée, saucisson, oysters with Champagne sauce, and escargot popping up on the menu – just to name a few. “

On top of all the French delicacies on the menu, punters will also get to shop for a whole lot of sparkly, festive gifts à la a true European Christmas market. You can expect to peruse stalls full of jewellery, kids toys, snow globes, clothes and teas, as well as a whole lot of imported French fare that’s guaranteed to bring a bit of class to your Chrissy table.”

Your correspondent partook of some French gastronomic delights including Oysters,Scallops Mornay ,and some amazing INFINITY Bakery  Bread  filled with 8 Types of melted Frommage,.. matched with  some great French Wines and Champagne,..all consumed in copious quantities !


After the success of the Christmas edition of Bastille Festival in December 2021 and the Christmas in July Festival, the team has decided to come back. This time, with a reloaded version adapting the event into a fully-fledged Christmas market running over 6 enchanting nights.
