The Sixties

Take a trip back to the days when the hard shoulder of the motorway was a place to have a picnic, the churches were bursting at the seams, and drugs only existed in America... this was an era that signalled change. Did you experience the ‘60s, and would you like to relive them? Or did you miss out on this period, and would love to know what it was like? See ‘the Sixties’ brought back to life in Bokrijk.
