NCN 2023


Cercle royal gaulois

This year's gala of the JCI Belgium National Convention will take place in a slightly lesser known historical jewel of Brussels, but certainly not less exclusive or prestigious for that: Cercle Royal Gaulois.


The literary and artistic Cercle has been housed in these buildings in the “Warandepark” since the end of the 19th century. Most of them were built in 1820 as part of the entertainment complex called Vauxhall, a fitting illustration of the "Great History" of the city of Brussels. The beautifully decorated neoclassical halls are normally only open to members of the Cercle or for exceptional events, the NCN gala is an opportunity to be able to admire them!
