On November 7th, 2015, on a beautiful Saturday, the friends of the puppetry from the whole Belgium gathered themselves at the foot of the castle of the Counts of Flanders to participate to the traditional Annual Day of the Belgian UNIMA Centre, organized in Gent (Ghent), in the frame of a great Flemish festival, the Landjuweel Festival.

The president of the National centre, excused, was worthily replaced by the Vice president, Philippe Sax, surrounded by administrators of the Belgian Centre, Carlo Trovato, Edmond Debouny, Jan Vandemeulebroeke et Alain Verhelst.

What are doing the friends of puppetry when they have meeting ?
They exchange and enjoy shows, without to forget to lunch.

Welcome and warm exchanges, this new Day of the Belgian centre kept its promises, gathering the puppeteers, the friends of the puppetry, in a pleasant atmosphere and a shared passion.

Rendez vous was already scheduled for the next year…. and, it would be the turn of the francophone section to organize all.
