Event Description

Colourfully illustrated, this wide-ranging, informative, and fun talk will provide Melanie’s insider’s view of the beautiful city of Bruges, in Flanders in Belgium, having enjoyed a second home there for almost twenty years. Although famous for its chocolate shops Melanie will set out to prove that the Gothic city represents more than just this popular delicacy. Many audience members will have visited Bruges and the talk will bring back memories but will also show that there is much more to see in this city to inspire a return visit to explore further.

Meet The Speaker, Melanie

From being an enjoyable part-time ‘hobby’ the repeat bookings for Melanie Gibson-Barton's talks grew to such an extent that she gave up her 'day job' to become a full-time speaker. Many of her talks have been commissioned by previous audiences for commemorative occasions.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
