The Christmas market is in full swing and will be on until 3rd January. Go on a clear day for great views from the top of the wheel, down by the Schelde. The bamboo installation on Grote Markt is also very impressive.
If you are looking ahead already, and would like to see a panto in English in the new year, you can order tickets already for the BATS production of Little Red Riding Hood. Guaranteed to provide traditional fun and please children of all ages.
Fashion Market Plein publiek
Free Art Exhibition at Bar Lucy in aid of Flemish Refugees.
On De Conninckplein, it’s the last day to a “Spiegeltent” which opens on the evening of the 17th December for a four day program by Time Circus. There will be music performances and various activities (face painting, Tibetan music, food workshops) on the De Conninckplein (in front of Permeke library) on the Saturday, which is Family Day.
High street shopping can be done on and around Meir, as shops will be open for the last Sunday before Christmas.
For anyone wishing to volunteer or donate over Christmas (or beyond), here are a few links:
Christmas day: Shops will be closed; Christmas market will be open; UGC cinema and the zoo will be open; some restaurants will be open and offering Christmas menus. Check for times, as there may be later opening hours for anything that is open. It’s business as usual for Turkish and Moroccan shops.
Have a fantastic Christmas! I will be posting again on a regular basis in 2016, and possibly before then with some suggestions for the days around New Year.
Thanks so much for following; please leave comments, feedbacks and any suggestions for events which you think I should include.
