It’s Valentine’s Day -for something a bit different, why not swing by MAS museum at Eilandje if you are around over lunch? They are providing a ‘poetry massage’ featuring Antwerp city poetry between midday and 14h.
Filmhuis Klappei is holding a film festival for children (Filmfestival van De Evenaar) on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend (see pic left; taken from Klappei Facebook page). Here is the Saturday programme: you can register your child(ren) here.
For grown-ups, it’s the closing party for Wintar at 8pm -12, over near the de Koninck brewery.
It’s the monthly second hand book market on de Coninckplein in front of the Permeke Library. Books, comics, graphic novels, postcards and more for very reasonable prices. 10am -4pm.
*** UPDATE: helaas, once again storm disrupts play – Boekenplein is cancelled due to predictions of bad weather, as is the Valentine Run (below) for the second time. Rivierenhof will be closed; and the Run is postponed until 23rd Feb. ***
Every Sunday at 2pm at the “sprookjeshuis” there’s a fairy story read aloud (in Dutch) for children aged 6+. It’s costs 5 euros and you can register your child(ren) here, in advance. The Sprookjeshuis is near the Rivierenhof Kasteel and the playground.
The weather is likely to be mild (11- 12 degrees) and showery on Saturday and Sunday, with wind -although not stormy like last weekend!
Runners: You can now sign up for the Antwerp 10 Miles on 26th April 2020. It costs less if you sign up before the 6th April.
Jazz Middelheim tickets are now on sale for 2020.
The week beginning 24th February is spring half-term (“krokus vakantie”) for Belgian schools. If you have kids to occupy, you might like to enrol them in some local activities. On this page, you can find sport activities for them, and Idee Kids runs camps for a variety of age groups and interests. Kamp Zoeker helps you search for a suitable camp according to age, activities and location.
(Because I am away at that time, there will be no post on the 27th February).
