This weekend in Antwerp: 1st, 2nd & 3rd February
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:

We have a new storyteller:  Lieven is a true fan of Anglosaxon ghostwalk traditions and has toured the U.K. to experience many different urban ghost tours.  We combined his passion with our longstanding expertise in providing entertaining English language ghostwalks, balancing ghostly atmosphere with some typical Antwerp flair and peculiar local folk stories. This brings the original “Antwerp Ghostwalk” to a new level.
we have sessions planned at  – Friday February 1st at 8PM (this Friday) – Friday March 1st at 8PM  

Visit the website for more information and tickets, or check out the Ghostwalk Facebook page.

Saturday

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.
Sunday

It’s the first Sunday of the month so shops in and around the center 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).

Sadly the weather outlook is not great and there is the chance of rain on all days this weekend. Temps are around 6 degrees.

 
Miscellaneous

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.
