Fascinating tales from behind the scenes of Mechelen heritage. Every second and fourth Thursday of the month at 8 p.m.
Soirée Lamot represents a fascinating, accessible series of lectures on a range of aspects of Mechelen heritage. Every second and fourth Thursday of the month, we invite an expert to deliver an impassioned yet accessible talk about his or her research. If the subject permits, a site visit will follow the lecture.
We deliberately choose a very diverse palette of content in terms of the periods, types of heritage and themes. We want to offer the message how diverse heritage can be to a wide audience. Both anecdotes and big sweeping facts are given a place in the series. We hope to gradually and informally build a loyal audience of people interested in heritage and to encourage people to develop an interest in archaeology, for example, and an enthusiasm for oral history.
The topics in the lectures are not necessarily purely about Mechelen. They may start from a broader context, but the link with Mechelen or the Mechelen region is always clearly made.
Address: Lamot, Van Beethovenstraat 8-10, 2800 Mechelen
