April

Easter egg hunt

It's that time again! Tubby's cat Duchess managed to hide all the Easter eggs. Will you come and help us search in the garden of Talbot House? During the cool quest you will discover the beautiful garden of Talbot House. Did you know that there are also many garden games? If you have found all 🥚, a nice surprise awaits you!

Together with the family you can discover the fantastic adventures of soldier Arthur Pettifer during the digital family tour. Our British caretakers provide a delicious cup of tea (or juice) and of course Jimmy has baked his cookies. And yes, the real cat Duchess is also present!

Sleuths can indulge in the beautiful garden of Talbot House every day (March 30 - April 14). No reservation necessary.

If you would like to go out with the real soldier Arthur Pettifer, be sure to come along on April 3 at 2 p.m. for a great live story tour. (Dutch version)

Belgium Military Wives Choir

13 April 2024 - 15h30

In 2023 we had the Belgium Military Wives Choir performing at our annual brunch. Then they were so impressed by the House that they decided to plan an extensive storyteller program on their program in 2024, followed by a 30-minute concert in the garden.

The Belgium Military Wives Choir, based in Brussels, was founded in 2014 and is part of the international Military Wives Choirs. The repertoire consists of both traditional and modern songs, as well as commemorative songs performed during the Last Post in Ypres and other military events in Belgium.

This concert is included in a regular visit to Talbot House.

Heritage Day

Sunday 21 April - 10h30

During heritage day with the theme at home, a visit to Talbot House cannot be missed. During WWI, Talbot House was a home to many (British) soldiers as a British soldiers' club and its homely character has still been preserved over the years. But even after WWI, Talbot House was and still is the House where everyone is welcome.

This time, however, we will take you to the Oud Kerkhof 'Rekhof' cemetery. Where many Talbotousians found a final home. Our regular storyteller Luc will visit some of these notable figures from the history of Talbot House throughout the cemetery and reflect on their story and how they helped make Talbot House a HOME. After this story, our storyteller Luc will take you to Talbot House to enjoy a delicious cup of tea!

This story tour takes place at 10:30 am at the Rekhof cemetery in Poperinge. You will arrive at Talbot House (on foot) around 11:30 am. Registration in advance is required.

Price: Free
