Events

Our Board members are constantly looking for events with a ‘Belgian touch’ that can be organized. Any suggestions or initiatives we welcome greatly, Please contact us via the contact page. The events are exclusive for our Association and all our members receive a personal invitation via email to each of the activities.

Agenda for 2020 :

On 18 March 2020, our Chairman Jan E. Frydman informed all of our members by personal mail that in view of the on-going pandemic, the SBA Board has decided to cancel all of its scheduled events for Spring, including the Annual Meeting normally held in April. The idea then was to hold it right before the Moules & Frites dinner in September.

It is with great regret that the Board now in June must conclude that it is not likely that we will be able to hold any physical meetings in the Autumn either. In order to be able to comply with the requirements to hold an Annual Meeting this year, we have therefore decided that this be done digitally, by e-mail. All members have received a personal e-mail with the appropriate documents, and are invited to reply latest August 14th at 17h.

Planned EVENTS (On Hold) :

  • Guided tour (in English) in the apartment of Astrid Lindgren in Stockholm (Vasastan), 25 March, 18h – 19h (gathering latest at 17h50) LINK
  • AGM with Ambassador of Belgium to Sweden Hugo Brouwers, 21 April at 11h30
  • Yearly moules/frites dinner evening, September
  • Arrival of St. Nicholas/Sinterklaas, Sunday 6th of December, this event will be organised in a digital way.

We hope that even more members will join us so that we can maintain and extend our activities even more.
