Heritage Day

We will close the summer project GAST on September 9 during the Open Monument Day.

You will have the chance to view the authentic courtyard with the pagadder tower.

Especially for the occasion we asked the ladies of ROEST  to take you through the building,  to guide its history and its present function. Do not expect the traditional guided tour,

but on an artistically challenging route through the temporary art studios and exhibitions in the Oude Beurs.


In addition, some artists from the 'culture in the street' entertainment offer create good vibes and treat visitors to atmospheric performances in the courtyard. Fameus selected 15 cultural acts in various art disciplines for this offer, together with Stadsmakers (urban service that supports initiatives by residents and associations). Vlamo also delegates some skilled artists!


Everything is free and without reservation!
