It’s not every day that a group for English-speaking women is prominently featured by the Luxembourg City Museum.
“We were one of three clubs selected from hundreds,” BLC committee member Dawn Butler stated. “This underlines the value we bring to the English-speaking community in Luxembourg.”
“Since the early 19th century, several thousand associations have been founded in Luxembourg’s capital, of which only a small number exist to this day,” according to the Luxembourg City Museum. The exhibition, , “shows the long history of Luxembourg’s associative life” by presenting “a variety of historical objects from the possession of active or already disbanded associations.”
The exhibition started on 25 March 2022 and will end on 9 July 2023.
However, some of the displays are presented on a rotating basis. “The BLC has been allocated an entire room in which various events and objects are exhibited, depicting the club’s activities, mission and history,” a club spokeswoman told Delano on Wednesday.
The BLC installation opened on 22 December 2022 and will run until 16 March 2023.
Search for new chair
The spokeswoman continued: “With this in mind, the club is urgently seeking a volunteer to chair the group into the future and save it from closure. It cannot function without a chair and despite a lengthy search, no suitable candidate has been found. It is worth mentioning that the role could be shared by two people wishing to work as a team. After all, the BLC has been attracting members for more than 50 years and has a dynamic committee in place and ready to go.”
The club is similarly searching for a new events manager, she added.
Despite its name, the club is not limited to British nationals; it just operates as an English-speaking organisation.
