Don't miss the troops parading in front of the Nation. It's also a chance for Belgians to reassert their national identity on 21 July.

In Brussels there'll be a varied programme of festivities, from the Place du Jeu de Balle to Brussels Park, taking in the various districts of Brussels.

On the evening before, there's the traditional National Ball which gets the celebrations started with concerts by Belgian artists, majorettes and zinneke hosts enlivening the Marolles area.

On 21 July, from Brussels Park to the Place Poelaert, you can enjoy concerts, demonstrations, tastings and sporting events all set up in the form of trails and villages.

And the other areas of Brussels won't be outdone either!

Yes indeed, the B-United Festival will host world music concerts and cultural activities in the Anneessens, Willems and Peter Benoit squares.

And to round it all off, watch the ever popular firework display in the Place des Palais.
