English Theatre in Belgium
British American Theatrical Society
BATS has been active in Antwerp since 1956. Each season they put on three or four main productions including their popular Christmas pantomime. A large proportion of their membership and audience are Belgian. They have Open Evenings on the first Friday of the month, often with entertainment, and a monthly newsletter.

The Brussels Shakespeare Society
"The Bard gives the best buzz!" according to former BSS Chairman Sarah Nolan. Forget weeds, pills and potions: the greatest addiction known to mankind is Shakespeare. Before they cart me off to cold turkey in rehab, let me invite you to get a whiff of this heady elixir. Experience the thrill of seeing it all happen by organising or taking part in one of our productions. Our agenda also includes readings, workshops and the occasional exploration of other classic writings.
