I will be in the Brussels area over Easter weekend and I need tips on where to go.

I am planning a trip that will take me to Brussels over Easter weekend (April 18-21). I want to go to a French-speaking city that is within a short train ride (1-2 hours) of Brussels. I would prefer a place where I am unlikely to hear a lot of English.
Difficulty: Not Brussels or Paris. I have been to both and would like to try something new.
Are there any special events or festivities for Easter that would make one place or another worth visiting? If not, is there a place within the area that is must see?
I know that I could take day trips from Brussels to any number of places but I want to do more than the usual one-day blitz through each city. I want to find one place and take my time checking it out.
So far Liège looks interesting, as does Lille.
So what do you think? Where should I go?
