The Brussels Art Nouveau Art Deco (BANAD) Festival is coming to the Belgian capital for the seventh time in March. It will take place on three consecutive weekends from 11 to 26 March.
The programme of the event, which ties in with the Year of Art Nouveau, includes guided, inclusive tours of private interiors, family activities, lectures, game nights and an Objects and Restorers Fair, organisers announced on Wednesday at a press conference.
Each weekend, a part of the Brussels Region will be highlighted, so as to connect the different venues more easily. Visitors will be able to enjoy some 50 locations that are normally closed to the public.
New, never-before-seen spots this year include Villa Pelseneer (Uccle), the Pieper Hotel (Ixelles), the Waxmeiler Hotel (Schaerbeek), the Centre Scolaire du Souverain (Auderghem), the houses of Homen de Macédo (Schaerbeek) and the former paper mill, Papeteries De Ruysscher, in the city centre.
A cabaret evening on 26 March with the Golden Age Society, where you can “immerse yourself for an evening in the atmosphere of the Roaring Twenties,” will mark the closing of the Festival.
