Brussels to highlight art deco and art nouveau over three weekends in March

The Brussels Art Nouveau Art Deco (BANAD) Festival is coming to Brussels for the seventh time in March. It will take place over three consecutive weekends from 11 to 26 March.

The programme of the event, which ties in with the Year of Art Nouveau, includes tours of private interiors, family activities, lectures, game nights and a fair for objects and restorers, organisers announced at a press conference on Wednesday.

Each weekend will highlight a part of the Brussels Region, to make it easier to connect the different locations. Visitors will be able to enjoy some 50 sites normally closed to the public.

New, never-before-seen sites this year include Villa Pelseneer (Uccle), the Pieper Hotel (Ixelles), the Waxmeiler Hotel (Schaerbeek), the Souverain Centre (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 conclude the Festival.
