Cultural and community projects
We support different social and cultural projects in Belgium that are close to our local production sites.
Some examples of social projects include social help for schools and charitable organisations, sponsoring of sporting infrastructures and clubs, tourism and educational projects, etc.
Lhoist also supports programs of various cultural centers, including the 'Festival du Rire' (Festival of laughter) in Rochefort, the festival de 'Musique Baroque' (Baroque Music Festival)...
Aigremont Castle has been fully restored since it was acquired by the Lhoist Group in 2001. This exceptional place, a remarkable example of Liège’s architecture from the first quarter of the 18th century, is now open to visitors on a regular basis, especially for schools. Both classical music concerts and plays are organised here. The 'Journées du patrimoine' (Heritage days) attract some 700 people in September.
