The Bulletin on Bruzz: 31 March

21:44 30/03/2019
Listen back to the reports and interviews from The Bulletin's Sunday lunchtime show on 98.8FM in Brussels

Brussels by Designers

Brussels by Designers is a guidebook unlike any other: it is not time sensitive and the content is entirely different every year. For each edition four designers are asked to give us their favourite places to eat, drink, visit, shop and sleep in Brussels. Once a place is mentioned it can’t reappear in later editions so each guide is all new. Philippine Nicaise, in charge of fashion and design for Visit Brussels tells us what to expect. Available at the Brussels tourist offices (BIP and Grand-Place) and in better bookstores.

Ateliers Mommen

We visit the little Montmartre of Brussels. You would be forgiven for not noticing the Ateliers Mommen, a beautiful ensemble of 19th century buildings, in Saint Josse. The Ateliers Mommen is the last of the 19th century cité des artistes still active in Brussels. We hear going to hear from three of its residents, starting with British artist Anthony Oliver.

Brussels Monopoly

A special edition of the world’s most popular board game will be launching in September. This Brussels version of Monopoly will feature new street names, venues and squares to match those of Brussels. The game will be made in French, Dutch and English.
