This weekend: 4th, 5th & 6th November

Here is the GOOGLE MAP for the venues and locations listed in this weekend’s post.

Friday

Plein Publiek celebrates its first birthday this weekend and is worth a visit if you have not seen this interesting venue. Check their Facebook event page for the details of what is taking place there this weekend.

A-Tower, Keyserlei

And if you enjoyed Bar Gloed, Klub Goud and other events at the A-Tower (Keyserlei) over summer, you will be pleased to learn that it is reopening for the winter edition following a seasonal make-over of the bar on the 4th floor, and the addition of a new restaurant on the top floor. This will be open until January 2017.

If you are interested in being involved in English speaking theatre in Antwerp, head along to BATS for their Open Evening at their friendly ‘Little Theatre’ on Paardenmarkt.

 

 

 

Saturday

It’s the last MARTA Farmers’ Market for this year at the Kattendijkdok (9am-5pm). Last chance to get your organic, locally produced veg, cheese and meat and other local food products -stock up for autumn and Christmas.

Papa Jos

Head to Papa Jos for the first live performance by new local Band 110 at 9pm – Timo, Alex and Daniel providing tunes which combine rock sounds with electronic loops/ dance and chill-out beats.

Sunday

This weekend’s rommelmarkten (fleamarkets) are at Waagnatie (Rijnkaai 150) from 10 or Plein Publiek from midday.

And shops are open in the city centre for Sunday shopping, with most having a later opening hour of midday.

 

Last weekend we enjoyed more  mild weather, untypical for the start of November, but this weekend it looks as though it will be colder with increased chances of showers on all three days (less so on Sunday).

Miscellaneous

Street Art Tour

Yesterday, I finally managed to strike off another item from my Antwerp to-do list and made it to a Street Art Tour led by Tim (aka Streetartwerpenaar). You can find out more about the tours on the link and also on Tim’s Facebook page under events. I really recommend this tour: it’s a different way to see the city and a great way to get out and about. It’s suitable for almost all ages -my 7 year old also enjoyed it very much.

Works by Antwerp artist, Sacha Eckes (at ICU Sling Expo)

The Antwerp Book Exhibition 2016 is on at the Expo until 11th November. This is a huge event, for which you need tickets.

The Sling UCU Art Expo continues on both days this weekend. I went along last weekend and really enjoyed seeing both the artworks and the venue, which is a former mustard factory, now converted to large attractive exhibition and work spaces, which have both an airy yet industrial feel.

Badminton players: you can now enrol for a badminton festival run by Sporting A on the 3rd and 4th December. It costs just three euros per half day, and you can register here -you don;t need to be a top player: there are also tournaments for beginners.

For your calendar: 11th November is a public holiday (Wapenstilstand/ Armistice).
