The Alkmaar Café - the place to be! 

Alaaf dear Bath-Alkmaar Twinning Association members and friends!

Come and join us for Carnaval celebrations on Wednesday 6th March 7pm onwards at the Rising Sun Inn, Grove Street, BA2 6PJ.

Before the start of Lent, normal life in the Southern regions of the Netherlands comes to a halt. With a week of street parades and parties, colourful costumes and oompapa music, people set aside their everyday differences and experience a heightened sense of social unity.

Dress up with crazy costumes (or the traditional boerenkiel) and dance the polonaise to your favourite carnavalskrakers music.  Or just come along and join in the fun.

We'll have special Dutch snacks, and a prize for the person with the most original outfit.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Bath’s Alkmaar Café, is held every first Wednesday of the month, 7.00pm-9,00pm at The Rising Sun in Grove St, just off the Pulteney Bridge in the centre of the City.

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 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.

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 (sometimes!) and celebration (always!): catch up with the latest news, meet others from the Dutch community in and around Bath, or just those with a Dutch link.
