A group of Brits in Belgium have announced that they plan to mark the last day of the UK’s transition out of the European Union with a candle-lit vigil outside of the British Embassy Brussels.
The invite to the “sombre” occasion comes the from the Brexit and the Belgian Brits (BABBS) Facebook group, which has become a resource for many Brits looking for help with understanding what is going on.
“It is a sad day for most of us perhaps a time to mourn together before we start the long road back to rejoining,” the event description reads. Starting at 8:00 PM the event will end at 9.30, half an hour before the current Brussels curfew at 10:00 PM.
Due to the current coronavirus measures, no more than 100 people will be able to attend – with the event attributing this information to the Ixelles police. People will be standing in groups of 4.
Attendees have been called upon to dress in Mourning Black with EU Facemasks, and have been asked to bring a candle and something to light it with.
