BALADE: Summer storytelling in the garden of Erasmus House

Salon d'art Galerie Saint Gilles

A genuine timeless bubble, the medicinal and philosophical gardens of Erasmus House have spanned centuries and haven't aged a day. On Sunday 14 August, to add a touch of magic to this little oasis in Anderlecht, two storytellers transport you on a walk packed with stories and poetry. Supported by Conte en Balade, this initiative combines the spoken word and nature, leading us on a fantastical journey.

In French. Every Sunday of the summer in Brussels’ parks.

EXHIBITION: Kidorama, 200 years of children’s fashion

Salon d'art Galerie Saint Gilles

Today's cool kids shape the trends of tomorrow! At the Fashion & Lace Museum, Kidorama looks back over two centuries of fashion by exploring trends, labels and developments. From little smocked dresses, lace christening suits and Belle Epoque sailors' outfits to the most cutting-edge pieces such as an impressive Paco Rabanne leather jacket and a dress with purple frills, this new exhibition takes a look at today's fashion in the light of children's outfits worn since 1820.

Until 5 March
