Woensdag 14 januari 2015 — Dear Sir/Madam, 

On the 5th of February, the Brussels arts centre Beursschouwburg will celebrate its 50th anniversary. That makes Beursschouwburg one of the oldest Flemish arts centres in Brussels. This 50th anniversary is the ultimate occasion for a 50 hour kick-off party, followed by a 5 month birthday-programme. 

"50 hours of Beursschouwburg. A non-stop start" offers a divers programme, including: food & drinks, performances & shows, concerts, workshops, parties, family-time, camping in Marriott, a commuter-concert, exhibitions, a vinyl-markt...

All the activities during 50 hours of Beursschouwburg are free and Beursschouwburg is unfortunatly not able to make reservations*: 'first come, first served'. 

* Except for: "Under The Stars at Marriott", Breakfast Delivery and Wake-Up Service. 

We kick-off on Thursday 5th of February, from 7 pm onwards: 

19:00     Speeches, reception & vernissage

21:00     50 Birthday cakes

22:00    OPENING NIGHT - a vaudeville - Mark Tompkins & Mathieu Grenier
performance
If at first OPENING NIGHT might seem to be simply entertainment, a show composed of comical situations and tragicomic song-and-dance numbers (like Elvis Presley’s 'Are You Lonesome Tonight', Beyoncé’s 'Run The World (Girls)',...), a more ambivalent and touching fable about the joyful yet ferocious transmission between an ageing Star and his young protégé slowly emerges. So, welcome for a good, old cabaret!
