MONS gearing up for European Capital of Culture in 2015

mons3.jpg Most people will associate the town of Mons with the important role it played in WWI and the presence of British and German troops in 1914, but the city's history dates back to Roman times.
Ancient traditions are celebrated in this lively town and The Ducasse de Mons or Doudou is the perfect example of an annual popular festival during the Trinity Sunday (57 days after Easter) which is recognized as one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
A true place of inspiration, notably the Dutch post-Impressionist painter Van Gogh lived in Mons from 1878 to 1880, while the French poet Verlaine wrote many of his masterpieces in the Mons prison.

It is no wonder Mons won the bid and the prestigious title of European Capital of Culture 2015. Being designated European Capital of Culture is an outstanding opportunity to affirm Mons's position on the European chessboard .

The arts programme combining international artistic content with the wealth arising from local diversity promises to be impressive and the town's event scene will be booming. This will all add to the charm of Mons and its attraction landmarks.

For a preview of Mons 2015, there has never been a better time to visit. @dmire combines cultural and social programmes, incentives or meetings and events before the big party begins !
