From delicious food to an old town square, a museum and even a trip to Van Gogh’s house and studio. What can be seen and enjoyed in the Belgian city of Mons over a long weekend :)
At the launch of Glaceau Smart Water which includes words from Europe’s only Water Sommelier (yes, you read that correctly!), indoor rain (not that we need any extra rain in England!) and of course the fantastic ‘water temple’ from Bompas & Parr where a ‘water tasting’ took place. Enjoy!
Remembering lives lost, on both sides, the 100 year anniversary was marked with a series of events including where the first British involvement in WWI took place in Casteau, Obourg station, Nimy railway bridge, Place des Martyrs, La Bascule monuments, planting of the centenery tree, St Symphorien’s cemetery and more. The also video includes a glimpse of the projections on the Mons town hall which shared some of the mystery of the Mons Angels, concluding with a glimpse of the Great war Society who conducted a re-enactment. Just under 8 minutes in length, this is a long video, but an insight and a fitting tribute to the men and women who fought during the war; which should serve as a reminder to us all that war should never be taken lightly.
A delicious tasting menu with words from Chef Rocky, enjoy!
Opening with the stunning fireworks display, in the short video we hear from the organiser Coen, the designer Mark, words from the Turkish ambassador to Belgium and the stunning cake designed by chocolatier Wittamer. We conclude with an outtake and the moment when one set of flowers caught fire! Enjoy, we did! :) – And a big thank you to Antonio, without whose help we would have not got our birds eye view!
Artist Lucy Sparrow sets up a Cornershop where all of the items which are actually for sale are made of felt! It has to be seen to be believed!
