Guest blogger Dolrish, Monday evening, 8th May
Next ‘Weekend’ post: Thursday 11th May
As the weather gets warmer, festivals are starting up and summer bars are opening!
Here’s the GOOGLE MAP for this weekend.
And BATS vzw hold their monthly Open Evening where all are welcome to come along and find out about the upcoming theatrical programme or about getting involved in English speaking theatre in Antwerp.
Over the water, in Linkeroever it’s Left Festival which is free, and kid friendly. There will also be a fleamarket, kids entertainment and food trucks. There’s even a Highland Games, for teams of 6-9 people. You can register your team via the site (costs 25 euros per team). And if you are a townie who has never taken the beautiful St Anna tunnel -by foot or by bike -under the river, Left Festival is a good reason to do so.
It’s a good day to head down to your local second hand shop with clean usable items that you no longer need because it’s Dag Van de Gever -the second hand shops are open to receive you and your donations with an event that celebrates those who donate to the Kring winkels by offering some chocolate and a bunch of discount vouchers for in the shops and elsewhere. The largest second hand store in Antwerp is on St Jorispoort (29).
It’s the first Sunday of the month, so shops will be open for Sunday shopping.
From 1pm -10pm there is a Turkish Cultural day (2600 Turkije) in Berchem at the Cultuur Centrum.
And the Sunday garage sales at Steegsken 6 have been extended to continue throughout May (11am- 6pm).
Markt van Morgen is also on Klooster Straat from midday.
And at Het Eiland there is a mini-flea market hosted by Het Eiland and Ieder Zenne Meug, free, from 11am -6pm
The weather is predicted to be warm and dry this weekend -although sometimes cloudy – with top temperatures of 19 degrees.
Coming up: Belmodo Fashion Days
Check out the newly re-opened Museum of Modern Art (MuHKA)
