***** NEXT POST: THURSDAY 9TH MARCH *****
Here’s the GOOGLE MAP for all the places mentioned here. Wouldn’t want you getting lost.
JEFF the Youth Film Festival finishes up this weekend with films, activities and workshops taking place until (and including) Sunday.
HAP Food Trucks festival is on over the whole weekend at Park Spoor Noord Cargo Bar.
There’s a free mini- expo all about chocolate opening at MAS. Chocolate Secrets will be on until the 3rd September.
Permeke Library kicks off Youth Book Month at 6pm, with an evening aimed at 12-15 year olds. The book months has the theme of gender, identity, role-models and stereotyping. The kick-off event includes readings, music, a drink and a goodie-bag for those who attend. Register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
And don’t forget that- it being the first Friday of the month- it’s a good chance to had along to the Open Evening at BATS Little Theatre on Paardenmarkt 111 at 8.30 to find out about their upcoming shows, or to find out about getting involved in BATS English speaking theatre productions in Antwerp.
In response to a query on last weekend’s post, alas, I can’t find much in the way of second hand markets in town, this weekend. On Saturday, the nearest one is this one (left) in Deurne (also happening on Sunday)
Kinepolis on the Groenendaallaan is holding a free exhibition of volunteer work opportunities in the Antwerp area, from 1- 5pm.
The weather will continue to be largely unimpressive with temperatures between 9 -13 degrees. Sunday will feel cooler and there is the chance of showers on both days.
If you are in practice for the Antwerp 10 Miles, see below for a training run hosted by Sportoase.
We are fast approaching the very end of the Stadhuis 450 expo, which closes at the end of this month. If you have been meaning to go but haven’t, then time is running out ….
Finally – would you like to write a guest post for Nessascityblog? As you are probably aware, I post on Thursdays, weekly. I’d like to include a guest post for after the weekend is over, but before the new post is out (so Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday). I’d like posts in English which tell personal Antwerp stories -yours. Where are you from? What are you doing in Antwerp? Why? And what are your experiences of living and/ or working in Antwerp? What are the pleasures and challenges of adapting to life here? You don’t need to be Shakespeare and you don’t need to have English as your first language. I will proof-read and edit posts if necessary. Please get in touch via the About page if you would like to contribute. If you have a different idea for an Antwerp-related post I’d also love to hear it.
