Try to remain calm at all costs.
Remember, the people you meet here are the representatives of France....they are not necessarily representative of France.

Hi, We have been given an appointment for tomorrow (15th August) via TLS contact for a visa at 9am. The problem is that we think 15th August is a Bank Holiday in France so are not sure if this will be open. Could anyone please confirm?
