Dear friends

We will be gathering in the beautiful city of Ghent (Belgium) to celebrate the life and work of Leonard Cohen during the weekend of August 5-7. The Event will host several artists, speakers and films during the weekend, aswell as combining some lovely sight seeing in the medieval city of Ghent with late night gatherings with friends old and new.
If you’re interested in joining us for the weekend, make sure to read all the info which can be found on the Forum (www.leonardcohenforum.com) here: https://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewforum.php?f=94
And if you need any more info, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me and I’ll gladly answer any of your questions. But don’t wait too long to register, because we are near to closing the registration for pratical reasons.
Hope to see you in Ghent next month!
For now: enjoy summer, stay well and take care of each other.
All good things
Maarten & the organizing committee of the Event
