It was a super event! It’s the 3rd time I’ve gone and I wouldn’t miss it!

Press Video here - https://www.bruzz.be/videoreeks/zat...o-basiliek-van-koekelberg-wordt-even-klimmuur

It’s crazy to think what they allow the cavers to do but it’s open from Friday evening, Saturday 8am - midnight and Sunday 8am - 2pm. 20€ each for a slot.

(In case anyone wondered - we drove there, took the Eurotunnel and it takes only a little bit longer than a drive to the Dales on a bank holiday weekend!)

Do they have a website? Quite fancy going to the next event. Take it it’s organised by the local caving club?

Is that also the same for the event at fort barchon?

It’s a different club to the one that organises Fort Barchon.

The Koekelberg is GS Redan - I think they advertise it mostly on Facebook but I don’t use that so I have a friend in Belgium keep me in the loop.
