Dweezil Zappa playing guitar with Zappa Plays Zappa at the Beacon Theather in 2011. There is something weird and wonderful to see him play his father’s songs and channeling Frank’s guitar style. If you haven’t seen them, get a ticket for the current tour, it will be worth it.

The town centre was fortified with walls and on the other side of this door was the original home of the Beguines, a religious order dedicated to helping the sick and injured. The Beguines were relocated to a different part of the town in the 1700’s. The area is now used for low cost hosting for the elderly.
