Culture market in the Old Stock Exchange

On August 26, the Oude Beurs will once again be transformed into a vibrant artistic place.

During the culture market you will meet some of our GUEST and you can sing along and the organizers of Nekka Nacht invite you to come and listen to some surprising performances. Or you can just relax with a drink in our cozy GAST bar.

12.30 – 13.00 | PETROL –

Dutch children's songs
Children's songs are the basis of our singing culture and the most beautiful children's songs ... they have been written for a long time. The Appelmoes project therefore embraces traditional Flemish children's songs with great enthusiasm. 30 musicians from the Klein Kunstencentrum 't Smiske collaborated on a new CD, including coloring book.


13.30 – 14.00 | Happy Bee Ball –  Nekka 

Hilde Frateur sings, plays, writes music and knows how to enthusiastically take her audience along in her story. A musical story that's right! She accompanies herself on diatonic accordion, ukulele, foot drum and cymbal. She also lets the youngest play along on her self-built instruments. When she sings her new bee song, everyone starts dancing.  Did you know that bees lead the way to nectar in a wag dance?  

14.00 – 15.00 | Dutch singing  famous
Do you also want to improve your Dutch a bit or do you just like to sing? Then join the free singing session led by Wim De Busser (from Zita Swoon Groep, among others). In good weather, the piano is in the historic courtyard, in the rain in the GAST bar. Singing experience is not required.
