A mini post this weekend as I am away in Ireland for a couple of days. Normal service will resume next week, but in the meantime here are a few links which might be handy for you.
Let’s start with a plug for the good folk of BATS VZW who are going to be bringing the stories of Sam Shepard to Antwerp all weekend at their event An Evening With Sam Shepard. Listen to stories in English, on Friday, Saturday & Sunday.
Seminiviering is a spring time fertility ritual and very much a local celebration which take place on the first Saturday of spring, and which you can read about here. Festivities begin on the Grote Markt at 11.30 am, with folk dancing and singing. You can then follow the procession to Sint Andries, via Het Steen, where the figure of Semini can be seen above the archway entrance.
The ABC (antiques, bric-a-brac, curiosa) market is on at Den Beulebak from 11am -5pm
Jeugdboekenmaand is coming to an end. Head to Permeke Library for the free closing party, suitable for all ages and promising a photo exhibition and futuristic tunes from a winged music machine …
SNITT (second hand market organisers) are holding a rommelmarkt at Haar on Montevideostraat from 10 am -7pm.
The weather is likely to be much milder (11-12 degrees) and dry on Friday and Saturday, with the possibility of some showers on Sunday.
