The Alkmaar Café - the place to be! 


This Alkmaar Cafe is a bit special as it is close to the Relief of Alkmaar celebration. Alkmaar was the first Dutch town to hold off the mighty Spanish army during the Eighty Years’ War. After seven long weeks of hardship in the boggy Dutch soil the Spanish finally ended the Siege of Alkmaar on 8 October 1573. Therefor we will pre-celebrate on the 3rd of October with some (typical) Dutch snacks and delicacies. We'll also have our sjoelbak available for a competitive game of sjoelen. JOIN US on the 3rd of October at the Rising Sun (Grove Street) in Bath from 19.00 hrs. See you there!

Bath’s Alkmaar Café , every first Wednesday of the month at The Rising Sun just of the Pulteney Bridge in the centre.

The Alkmaar Café is an informal gathering of people who have an interest in the Bath-Alkmaar link and all things Dutch. Organised by the Bath Alkmaar Twinning Association, Alkmaar Café attendees don’t have to be members, or Dutch - the Alkmaar Café is open to one and all.  Free to attend, the Alkmaar Café is held on the first Wednesday of each month from 7.00 pm and everyone is warmly welcomed to this informal gathering.

So join us at The Rising Sun Inn on Grove Street in the centre of Bath, from 7.00pm until 9.00pm, for a night of Dutch conversation, snacks and celebration: catch up with the latest news, meet others from the Dutch community in and around Bath, or just those with a Dutch link.
