Members only:

The Association of the Order of Leopold organises numerous cultural activities for its members and their guests. The yearly program usually comprises two important trips abroad and two monthly activities: lectures, visits to exhibitions, companies, cities and castles…
A planning is set up and gradually completed with many other events. These are announced in the course of the year by means of NEWS, the internal information magazine of the Association. This magazine contains, in due time, all details concerning the activities as well as the temporary exhibitions for which the Association organises a guided tour.

Small changes of date for planned activities may occur.
