Here’s the Google Map for Easter 2017
If you catch up with this blog on the day of pressing, you might like to know that there is a ‘Kijkavond’ on the roof of MAS this evening. This is organised by urania.be will go ahead if visibility is good, in which case it should be possible to see Mars and Jupiter. Free.
Recently refurbed and re-opened Fish & Chips store on Kammenstraat opens a free art expo at 6.30pm.
If you are shopping during the day with kids, there are some activities for them at Grand Bazar Shopping Centre between 11 and 5pm ( e.g. Easter basket and egg decorating)
Swaajp impro theater offer a double bill with Meeza Impro group for a mere fiver at Zaal Zirkus at 8pm
Sunday -Easter Day
Easter Day is all about brunching. You might remember that back in March I wrote about the work of Maddilyn Goodwin and the Sunburnt Country Project which takes place on 19th May at Singel. WILD restaurant in the old town is hosting a fun fundraising event in the form of a brunch, at 11am- 3pm, to help establish the costs of building the concept. Guests can experience the culinary side of Australia while helping these passionate artists come together to expand the cultural offers of Antwerp. There will be Australian-inspired food, sweets, drinks, live music and a bit of trivia! Prices range from 6 euros to about 15, depending on what you have to eat/drink. You can come for a full lunch or just swing by for a drink.
If you are in the old town, swing by Steegsken 6 for a small garage sale which is well worth a visit -throughout April, on Sundays from 11 -6pm.
It’s a holiday and shops are closed, but there are two markets which will be worth checking out: Goegekregen will be on Theaterplein all day, with the usual fair of vintage, retro and second-hand clothes, toys, books and household items. Meanwhile in Borgerhout on the Krugerplein, there is the Easter edition of Krugermarkt (selling second hand goods and their own handmade creations) offering activities for kids (races and an egg hunt). There is also a brunch which you can join in for 15 euros pp by registering via mail at firstname.lastname@example.org Krugerplein is a pretty square with space for kids to play, or to have a picnic.
Last chance to take kids to the pop-up indoor play above Mercado, on Groenplaats ….
The weather is set to be cool and mild but not as warm as some of the sunny days we have enjoyed recently. Saturday will be the warmest day, but with chances of showers too.
You can still register for the Antwerp 10 Miles next weekend.
