Gala Nocturna

World-famous dark romantic costume ball

Saturday March 5, 2016

The Age of Redemption

In troubled times, one is forced to reflect on years of abundance and excess. Can we do with less grandeur? Can we go back to the essence of style? Is it possible to deconstruct our own image, only to put it back together in a purified form? Do we dare expose our inner soul?

At Gala Nocturna – The Age of Redemption, we offer you this chance! The path to beauty has never been so clear. At the heart of it lies our true self. This is the time to reveal it!

Check out the dress code.

Augustijnen klooster

A unique monastery situated in the historical heart of Ghent. An oasis of peace, only a few steps away of the lively city centre. Remarkable art treasures, a beautiful inner court and typical convent rooms, such as the library and the sacred church which is known for its valuable organ. Augustinian Fathers are still living and working there. A perfect sanctuary for a time of reflection and thought.
