3. Hear Cape Verdean music with Nancy Vieira

What: Jazzy world music
CAPE, 1 Pl. Marie-Adélaïde, 9063 Ettelbruck - Google Maps
When: Friday, 1 April at 8pm - info & tickets

The jazzy voice of Nancy Vieira, accompanied by traditional Cape Verdean guitars, showcases the warmth and musical diversity of West Africa and the Caribbean. She grew up on Cape Verde and now lives in Lisbon, where her talent was discovered by chance. Following a music competition, she won the first prize and recorded her first album. This'll be a nostalgic and fun night, whether it is your first time discovering this type of music, or if you're a fan already.

4. Train laughing muscles at stand-up comedy night

What: Varied line-up
Le Croque Bedaine Luxembourg, 139 Av. du Bois, 1250 Luxembourg - Google Maps
When: Saturday, 2 April at 8pm - info & tickets

LLOL and Le Croque Bedaine invite you to train your laughing muscles or, as the event is officially titled, LAUGH YOUR ASS OFF with Neil Robinson, Michael Jager and local talent Luca Menichetti. Neil is from Canada but has lived in Amsterdam for years, where he has become famous for his comedy tour boats and "Survival Guide to the Dutch" (Editor's note: I'm Dutch and this guide is accurate). Michael is German, and tends to make pretty dry and offensive jokes, so he hopes nobody from the audience will get up and slap him...and Luca likes to share funny stories about life as a single dad and health care worker. What a bunch of fun this is going to be! Grab your tickets.


5. Watch Bruce Willis films

What: It's action time
 Netflix, Apple, Amazon, DVD...anywhere you can find 'em!
When: Anytime

Action hero Bruce Willis, star of the "Die Hard" franchise, is to retire from acting after developing a cognitive illness, his family had announced this week. A post on Instagram said Willis had aphasia, a language disorder that robs people of their ability to communicate. So why not take a moment to reflect on the great career of this actor, and watch back some of his movies? They include Die Hard, The Jackal, Pulp Fiction, Moonrise Kingdom, 12 Monkeys, Armageddon, Sin City, The Sixth Sense and more. Plenty to get through and (re)enjoy.

6. Hunt for bargains at flea market

What: Large street market
Where: Champs du Glacis - Google Maps
When: Sunday, 3 April between 10am-5pm - info here

The Luxembourg City flea market is back for the summer! It's a large street market where private individuals can sell second-hand items. It is different to the antique market, which is reserved for professional vendors. Not only is the flea market an unmissable event for bargain hunters and vintage fans, it's a great excuse to go out for a Sunday stroll around the city.

7. Let kids discover the sauna

What: Relaxation & discovery for kids
Redange Pool, 28 Rue de la Piscine, 8508 Redange - Google Maps
Saturday, 2 April from 10am-12pm - info here

The Redange swimming pool is organising a kids event whereby children can discover the facility's saunas.

There's also a little lunch available after for €10.
