Remember looking through flipbooks as a child? Place the little booklet in your hands, find the right speed at which to flick through the pages, and there you go: You've got a short story! Head down to Rotondes this Friday evening for an international exhibition of flipbooks, it'll be a fun and impressive visit!
2. See entertaining Mnozil Brass
The seven virtuosos from Mnozil Brass are a pure joy to watch. Not only does the group have the ability to add groove and swing to any song, but it does so with great humour and entertainment. Check out this version of Bohemian Rhapsody:
3. Hear monthly concert by Lucilin
Starting in January 2023, United Instruments of Lucilin will present a new series of concerts with each month, a programme curated by one musician of the ensemble, thus highlighting Lucilin’s diverse musical personalities and more generally, the huge diversity of the contemporary music repertoire. The first takes place this Saturday.
Danielle Hennicot, viola player of the ensemble, conceived a programme around two major female composers: Icelandic Anna Thorvaldsdottir (In the Light of Air, for ensemble and electronics) and Finnish Kaija Saariaho (Vent Nocturne, for viola and electronics) whose pieces are intensively inspired by nature adoration, silence or wind sonorities.

4. Volunteer to help strengthen green areas
Are you interested in contributing to protect Luxembourg's nature? Each weekend, volunteers gather with team members from natur&ëmwelt to help preserve and strengthen various green areas in the country. Take a look at the weekly agenda and simply register in advance.
This Saturday, volunteers will be moving and clearing a lawn in Dudelange to give more space to rare plants. Register by calling Claudine Felten on 29 04 04 304 or emailing email@example.com.
5. Watch The Menu
The Menu is an absurd horror-comedy about a young couple who visits an exclusive restaurant on a remote island, where a chef has prepared a lavish tasting menu full of shocking surprises. The film has been out for a few months, but was back in the spotlight after being nominated for a Golden Globe earlier this month.
6. See exhibition on glass ceiling
As artists and mothers, Nora Koenig and Anne Simon question whether it is possible to have it all: career and family. Their joint installation playfully exposes, through a series of distorted self-portraits and representations of this illusion, that women still come up against a glass ceiling.
7. Swap old puzzles
Are you getting tired of the puzzles you have at home? Need a new challenge, a new picture of these painted enigmas waiting to be solved? Head to Centre Barblé in Strassen on Sunday to exchange the puzzles you no longer need, and choose another to take home. Puzzles will not be checked beforehand, so please only bring puzzles that are complete and in good condition.
