Opening on Friday evening at 5, and continuing over Saturday and Sunday too is The Image Generator II an art ‘happening’ comprising events, performances and talks at Extra City (Eikelstraat 31, 2600 Antwerpen).
Also on Friday night is BATS Antwerp monthly open evening (also with a quiz this Friday) so feel free to head along to Paardenmarkt 111 from 8.30pm if you enjoyed their recent panto and would like to know more about getting involved in English speaking theatre productions in Antwerp.
At Plein Publiek there is a design market from 11-5pm for a 2 euro entry cost.
On Krugerplein in Borgerhout the Krugermarkt is taking place from 4pm, offering food, drink and locally made products such as textiles and jewellry. It’s worth checking out this cute neighbourhood if you don’t already know it. The square where the market is taking place is socially the heart of the neighbourhood and has a play area for little ones. This blog post has some really nice pictures of previous markets held there.
Another neighbourhood event is taking place on Dageraadplaats: starting at two and continuing until midnight there is a winter festival including music, dance, DJs, kids’ entertainment, and food & drink stands.
The Youth Film Festival (JEFF) starts today and runs until the 13th February. A number of short films for kids are showing in the Zuiderpershuis and there are other activities like this one, also at the Zuiderpershuis (all day, all ages, for free). The Antwerp agenda for JEFF comprises film showings, workshops and labs at both Zuiderpershuis and the Ecohuis, Antwerpen.
A reminder that it’s the first Sunday of the month, so ….Sunday shopping!
There’s a food market (local produce, food trucks and kids’ entertainment) at Felix Pakhuis, down at Eilandje (near MAS).
And two reasons to visit Madam Woll today: a 2 hour kids’ knitting atelier at 10am (8 euros; register beforehand via email: email@example.com & bring your own materials) and a kids’ clothes exhibition at 12.30 from Titi and Paca.
Take your brolly -there is a high chance of showers on all days over the weekend, alas.
Finally, a reminder that next week is half-term holiday for all Belgian schools (Krokus Vakantie). If you haven’t done so already have a read of this post which contains links to a number of activities, workshops and camps which are running for kids at this time. There may be some spaces left on some of the activities.
Do comment, mail & Tweet your feedback and suggestions -are there events I am missing? Let me know.
Until next Thursday 🙂
