Celebrate the arrival of Saint Nicholas


Saint Nicholas is a little ahead of himself this year, but it’s a big job and it’s probably better to start early. On Sunday, 26 November, he is visiting Brussels! In what’s described as a magical show for the whole family; children and nostalgic adults will experience a parade like no other with more than 200 dancers, actors and musicians. From circus artists to the Gnawas of Morocco, including the Drummers of Burundi and our local flag throwers.

Saint Nicholas is above all a matter of tradition, but also a symbol of gathering and communion that year after year puts stars in the eyes of curious children and warms the heart of nostalgic adults alike. While an essential figure of European cultural heritage the festivities will also convey messages of inclusion and tolerance.

There are two shows at the Gare Maritime, Tour & Taxis, one at 11 and another at 14:30. With every ticket bought there is one ticket free for a child between 3-12 years old, and if you’re under three, it is completely free!
