BANAD USER GUIDE

The BANAD Festival is organised by Explore.Brussels and its member associations: ARAU, Arkadia, ChatterGuides and Pro Velo. 

www.banad.brussels

​The BANAD Festival is a special event that promotes the Art Nouveau and Art Deco heritage of the Brussels-Capital Region. It takes place every year in March, in 2018 from 10 to 25 March. 

At the heart of the festival are guided tours of the interiors of Art Nouveau and Art Deco buildings that are not normally open to the public. A unique opportunity to discover, or rediscover, these hidden architectural gems!

To take part in these guided tours of interiors, you will have to purchase a pass (see Practical Information section below).

Other activities that promote Art Nouveau and Art Deco heritage are also organised as part of the Festival, to complement the guided tours of interiors, including: outdoor walking, cycling and coach guided tours; concerts; seminars; shows; activities for families; a collectors' fair; activities for disabled people; and activities for schools. A pass is not required to participate in these activities.

It is possible to participate in the guided tours of interiors without buying a Pass and booking your place in advance: any remaining places on guided tours will be sold at €10 per person (plus any supplement) on the day at the entrance to the building. However, many tours are completely booked in advance and thus we cannot guarantee availability of places on the day. No priority is given to participants who purchase places on the day.

​ Details of all the things you can do at the BANAD Festival can be found in the different sections of the PROGRAMME menu. 

The guided tours of interiors in the BANAD Festival programme take place over these weekends:  

10 and 11 March 2018
17 and 18 March 2018
24 and 25 March 2018

Further Information:

  • You can book places for up to 5 people at a time. 
    Please note that there are no exceptions! This limit of FIVE people has been imposed by Explore.Brussels to allow as many people as possible to take part in the BANAD Festival.
  • With the 8-tour pass and the 24-tour pass, you can book places on guided tours over all three weekends.
  • If you attempt to book places on two different guided tours taking place at the same time on the same day, they will appear in red in your basket and you will have to delete one of them. Please remember to allow enough time between the end of one tour and the start of the next to get from one place to the other. To help you, the tours you have booked will be placed in start-time order in your basket. No refunds or alternatives will be offered if you arrive at a building after your guided tour has started.
  • Guided tours are free of charge for children under 12 years old. Please book your places for adults, then send us an email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with your booking number and the number of child places required for each tour in your basket. The Festival team will then book the number of child places required. We can guarantee that one child place will be available for each adult place booked.
  • Supplements will apply for guided tours of the interiors of some buildings. These will be automatically added to the price of your Pass (see PRICES section below).
  • Please note that there is a time limit for completing bookings: once you are in the system you will have 70 minutes to complete your transaction (booking + payment). The places in your basket will be held for you for 70 minutes. When you complete your booking and pay for it, you will receive a confirmation. However, if you fail to complete your booking or payment within 70 minutes, your booking will be cancelled and the places will be released for sale. We are aware that this sort of "countdown" can be stressful, but it remains the fairest and most efficient way of allowing as many people as possible to book places for the Festival.
  • Please do not use your web browser's "Forward" and "Back" page buttons during the booking process, as this will cancel your booking, as on most e-commerce websites. Please only use the website's "Forward" and "Back" buttons.
  • An email booking confirmation will be sent automatically. If you do not receive it, please check your spam or junk mail folder.
    The first email confirmation will let you know that your booking has been received and is awaiting payment before confirmation. The second email confirmation will let you know that payment for your booking has been received.
    You will also receive an email from Ingenico, the secure payment platform manager, confirming your payment.
