Listen back to the reports and interviews from The Bulletin's Sunday lunchtime show on 98.8FM in Brussels

Banad 2019

The Banad (Brussels Art Nouveau & Art Deco) festival gets you through the doors of some of those impressive facades you pass on the street every day. Tours of these private homes are just the beginning; there are also talks, workshops and family activities around these historical interiors, their architects and their original residents, much of it in English. Melanie Saussez of Explore Brussels tells us what's new this year.


The directors of La Monnaie, KVS and Théâtre National are jumping the political and linguistic barriers to get their audiences mingling. Lisa from Flanders Today explains more.

Brussels terror anniversary

The new film Hellhole by Belgian director Bas Devos opens this coming Wednesday, two days before the third anniversary of the attacks. It follows the stories of several people affected by the terrorist attacks of 2016. Some 32 people lost their lives, and Charlotte Sutcliffe suffers from one of those losses. Her partner David died on the metro. Last year she started an organisation with others called Survivors Against Terror. As a group, they believe victims of tragedies are not treated well enough.
