Some changes to the programme

  • Due to the weather forecast, the performances by BOYBAND, de literaire boyband and Clean Pete have been moved from the outside stage at Maria Montessori to the Lecture Hall complex (Mercatorpad 1), so that you will stay dry during the performances. The outdoor exhibits are not covered, so it is smart to bring an umbrella for this.
