Visit Gluren bij de Buren 2024!

After a hectic working day, you unwind in the living room. You often start your day here and ensure ultimate styling that suits you. You usually do this by styling the interior with your favourite colours and applying various home accessories. You get together in your living room and discuss how fun, but occasionally hectic, your working day was.

Because of this, we call the living room the heart of the home. The room where you come together. The living room may be known for its liveliness and atmosphere. We want to add that atmosphere to 46 living rooms spread throughout Helmond on 4 February 2024 and in this case, we do so with musical performances.

Why sponsor the Helmond Living Room Festival?

We, as vb&t Estate Agents, support Gluren bij de Buren in the socio-cultural aspect, where people open up their homes for visitors to visit. They open their homes for others to come together. At various locations all over Helmond, visitors can enjoy various performances given from 12:00 to 17:00, free of charge.

Physical presence

These days our world is dominated by artificial intelligence, but how much fun is old-fashioned getting together? Back to a world with social, face-to-face interactions.

It promotes a sense of being together and reminds us of the accessible way we used to interact with our neighbours. Or how you could walk into businesses. What accessibility! We love that.

Remember that accessible real estate agent in Helmond around the corner from the street? Where you could just walk in for a cup of coffee. We'd like to maintain that image at Steenweg 18a in Helmond, where vb&t Makelaars is located.

Meeting each other in Helmond

With these meetings, we try to break down social barriers, of course, but also combat loneliness within our older generations. This way, everyone can appreciate music in his or her own way. The music performances will take place on 4 February inside the homes of our participants.

Take a look at the house?

Always been curious what that one house in the neighbourhood looks like inside? This is your chance! Even if the house is not (yet) for sale, you will still get the chance to take a good look around and see how someone else has decorated their living room.

Giving musicians a worthy chance

More opportunity for up-and-coming talent who like the chance to present their work to others. Showcasing their creative talents to visitors, allowing them to showcase their musical skills to the outside world.

Visitors explore new genres and receive can choose to spend their day in various living rooms.
