Activities available to members

Conference lunches

Twice a month, the Cercle welcomes an important individual from the financial, economic or political world on the occasion of a lunch, which is followed by a presentation or a question and answer session.  

Lunch meetings

Meeting lunches are convivial occasions during which a personality (whether or not a member of the Cercle) who is recognised in the academic, economic, financial or political world is invited to lunch with members who register for this activity. This is an opportunity for members to get to know those who come to share their experience.

Business round tables

Several times a year, the Cercle arranges “diplomatic round tables” during which members have the privilege of meeting the principal ambassadors posted to Belgium.

The Cercle’s miscellaneous activities

In addition to its lunches, the Cercle arranges outside activities: visits to firms, cultural exhibitions, participation in openings, cocktail parties etc.

Benefits for members

Every month the Newsletter and the Cercle’s Web site offer members many benefits such as free seats and/or special price reductions for cultural, musical, sporting or social events (shows, plays, fairs, exhibitions, previews, festivals etc).




What is more, given the excellent relations the Cercle maintains with the Hotel Steinberger, the hotel offers members a reduction in room price on presentation of their membership card.

Wine cellar

A very beautiful vaulted cellar at the Cercle has been completely cleaned out and adapted for its new use: storing the best bottles that members want to store there in thirty or so secure mini-cellars.

In return for a modest “corkage fee”, members who own a mini-cellar will have the opportunity to offer the best of their vintages to their guests.

Parking

For several years, the Cercle has been offering its members a 10% reduction on the parking fees at Parking Poelaert.  In 2018, we have gone even further, thanks to our partnership with Interparking.

Members of the Cercle may now have a 10%  discount at all the 66 parking garages belonging to Interparking in Belgium, including at Brussels Airport.

In order to take advantage of this great offer, apply for your new Pcard via the link www.pcard.be/lorraine

A core of loyal supporters regularly meets up at Cuban cigar tasting dinners. The person responsible for this activity takes care to vary the region, whilst remaining intransigent on the subject of the quality of the cigars. A surprise epicurean, devotee guest attends each meeting.

Like a good many of its members, the Cercle is keen on beautiful, special cars or better still, their ancestors. So every year the Cercle arranges trips to allow “aficionados” to discover beautiful regions. Those bitten by the bug of beautiful upholstery and spellbinding engines regularly meet up for a friendly lunch: a real forum for exchanging information, tips and good ideas. Enthusiasts and owners of such jewels cannot miss taking part in these meetings. 

The Cercle arranges dinners where speakers linked to the world of hunting and fishing come to share their enthusiasm for nature and fauna with our members. The Cercle also organises hunting and fishing trips in Belgium and abroad, whilst clay pigeon shooting also brings together a great many connoisseurs each year. 

Once a year the Cercle suggests some four to five day trips for members and their wives. These jaunts are meant to be cultural, fun-filled and entertaining.  

Cercle members who are motorbike enthusiasts can share their “on two wheels” experiences during motorbike dinners and outings arranged  by the Cercle. Whether they take place around a convivial table or on roads stretching out across countryside that is different every time, the purpose of these activities is to weave a real bond between machine and rider. The idea is, above all, to cultivate, between friends, a taste for great performance, an enthusiasm for design and pleasure in the sport in its widest sense. 

Members of the Cercle Bridge Club get together once a month to exercise and perfect their skills. What is more they take part in numerous matches and challenges throughout the year, including the traditional inter-Cercle “duplicate bridge” tournament followed by dinner and a mini tournament.

Lots of members are enthusiastic sailors. Sea trips are regularly organised and members get together at lunches several times a year to talk about their sailing experiences. All the fundamental aspects of sailing are discussed in a lively and enthusiastic way: theory, practice, events, human adventures, unusual yachts etc.

Our Tennis Club captain will offer you all kinds of activities, including tournaments that cannot be overlooked.   

Partner Clubs

Thanks to reciprocal agreements, all these clubs are accessible to members of the Cercle de Lorraine. Every club has its traditions and its spirit. The spirit, that driving force of tradition, is defined as from the first day, whereas the traditions can take years to become established. We are delighted to be able to offer you free access to all our correspondent clubs. Indeed, within the framework of our reciprocal agreements, you are at liberty to visit the various clubs and enjoy all the amenities on their premises: this too is a tradition. You will have to take your membership card with you and a letter of introduction which you can obtain from the secretariat of the Cercle de Lorraine.
