The French flavour will be supplied in a pop-up literature salon, with vaudeville jugglers traditional French mime, and a man who plays a flaming tuba.
The festival’s flower stall stage will also feature live music acts throughout the afternoon.
Street shows include an opera and Lost Luggage, a silent production for film and theatre connoisseurs.
For food lovers, the Savoir-Fayre French market will be open throughout the day, stocked with the best French produce and street food.
