Crossbowmen and women of Brussels, unite! This Gild that dates back to the 14thcentury (The Great Royal and St George’s Oath of Crossbowmen to be exact) was behind the most colourful celebration of Brussels: the Ommegang. If even Charles V was impressed by their party skills, you know you’ll be in for a treat. During the evening, the Belgian ska fusion group Purpleized will provide an extraordinary ambiance for the impressive shooting demonstrations. Members of the guild will gladly give you a tour of the venue.
