Fashion happenings

Fashion and Old St. John: a marriage made in heaven! A catwalk in a historic setting always offers just that little bit extra.


Trade fairs

The former hospital on the Old St. John Site is not only a listed historical monument, but also a multi-purpose event building. The organizers of trade fairs will not find the usual cold and impersonal halls, but instead a series of unique historical spaces with an authentic charm and atmosphere. The Old St. John team is happy to place their expertise at your disposal for the organization and implementation of your fair.

Private functions

The Old St. John Site is the perfect location for wedding receptions, social functions and every other large celebration. This is hardly surprising: its different halls and rooms exude hospitality, with warm interiors that can be decorated to suit your personal requirements.


The imposing yet atmospheric banquet hall on the second floor has breathtaking views of historic Bruges and its canals. In addition, there are a number of smaller but equally stylish rooms that are perfect for a wide range of social and family events.
