Description

Fireflies musical walk

NOTE: Tickets for this event will go on sale on Tuesday 17 May at 10.30am on our website

As darkness sets over Brussels, male fireflies hit the forest looking for mates. They blink their beaming bellies as they fly around and before long they have synchronized with their neighbors. This bioluminescent mating dance peaks for just a few nights a year.

With musician-biologist Raphaël De Cock, the Belgian firefly specialist, we invite you to a musical stroll through the Forêt de Soignes. Between an intimate concert and a moment of nature observation, the “firefly sessions” are a magical and unforgettable moment. The tour includes explanations about fireflies, moments of very quiet acoustic music orchestrated by Raphaël De Cock and a surprise guest, and ends with the observation of fireflies, which only appear at sunset.

Practicalities
Bring good shoes or boots, something to sit on and something to cover yourself with in case of rain. We will walk +-4 km following a path which is not accessible with a vehicle.

The group departure is at 8.15 pm precisely, we will not wait for latecomers. The activity ends at about 11.30 pm.
