1. GUIDED TOURS OF THE MONUMENT
Ever wondered when this magnificent building was constructed?
How Vooruit survived the First and Second World War?
How this building escaped its possible fate as a parking lot in the seventies?
How many people worked here throughout the last century?
Whether this building flaunts 365, 366 or 367 rooms?
The answer to all these and many other questions is revealed during our guided tours! Whether in group or individually, a seasoned Vooruit specialist takes you on a trip through both the building and its turbulent history. From backstage to frontstage, tower to basement: every corner of this iconic building comes with its own anecdotes and stories.
Besides the more well-known rooms, such as the Theaterzaal or the Concertzaal, the guide takes you to places that are generally off limits: rehearsal spaces, hidden attics, a remarkable little tower with a splendid view on Ghent, … There is so much to discover, that much we can guarantee.

2. GARDEN TALKS
Once a month, Maria Lucia Cruz Correia quite literally plants herself on our garden terrace, ready to engage in individual dialogues with anyone that’s interested. Topics of choice: when do you mobilize yourself and your surrounding to combat local pollution issues? What drives you take action? What’s the difference between taking action or becoming knowledgeable on something?
