Dear LEAPA Members and Friends,
Are you missing out on cultural experiences? If you are feeling creative, now is the time to act on that feeling. You have almost a month to submit an entry to LEAPA’s short story writing competition - up to 2000 words in English on any subject, on paper please to 4 rue NS Pierret, 2335 Luxembourg by 15 June 2020 at the latest: see https://www.leapa.eu/page/events---whats-on/2020-short-story-competition.php for essential details.
If you prefer to watch and listen to something spectacular, take a look below for some outstanding opera and other performances and museum visits you can experience immediately at home. Enjoy this 'downtime'!
LEAPA looks forward to welcoming you to its own cultural events, including its annual Murder Mystery Dinner, as soon as it is possible to organise larger-scale social gatherings again.
We look forward to seeing you soon. In the meantime, keep healthy and safe!
The LEAPA Committee
