Thank you, Antwerp Ghostwalk, for getting in touch this week with the following information about two special walks for English speakers, one of which is happening this Friday:
– Friday March 1st at 8PM
Visit the website for more information and tickets, or check out the Ghostwalk Facebook page.
Another event of interest to English speakers is the Philosophy Café in Den Hopsack bar, between 2pm and 5pm – it’s a discussion group: no previous experience necessary, just order a beer and join in, or listen.
In Koning Albertpark there’s a free Winter Lights Festival festival from 3pm until 11.30pm with performances, music, DJs and games. Children may bring lanterns, and the park will be illuminated with lights as it gets darker.
It’s the first Sunday of the month so shops in and around the centre town will be open for “Winkel Zondag”. NB. many shops open a little later on Shopping Sunday; usually at midday.
There’s music in the cathedral on the first Sunday of each month too, in the Sacraments’ Chapel at 4pm. This is free to residents of Antwerp (on provision of proof that you’re a local). I believe an ID card counts as evidence if the place of issue is Antwerp. Otherwise it is 6 euros to go in (indeed the Cathedral is always free to Antwerp residents).
Rugby Fans! Come and enjoy the first Antwerp Derby of 2019, as Antwerp RC host local rivals, RC Schilde to Wilrijkse Plenin!
The 2nd XV will kick off the afternoon with a 1pm kick off before the 1st XV face each other at 3pm.
Sadly the weather outlook is not great and there is the chance of rain on all days this weekend. Temps are around 6 degrees.
Legends of Liondance continues at Permeke library as part of the approaching Chinese New Year festivities. This is a colourful display of the lions which lasts until 10th February, and is free.
