Bath and Alkmaar are two historic cities, linked for over 70 years. In that time, thousands of our citizens have travelled back and forth, making friends, working on projects and activities together, and finding out about each others' country.
We celebrate and enjoy the opportunities our link creates by supporting friendship, fun and fellowship between our two cities, and more broadly between the UK and the Netherlands.
You can see some of what we did during our special celebrations in 2017 here:
Our role: We encourage links between people in our two cities, enriching both communities. Through local social activities we act as meeting point for all Dutch people who have made their home in and around Bath, and for anyone locally who has an interest in the Netherlands.
Get involved and support us! We are entirely voluntary: become a supporter-member and help grow our activities: click here for a supporter/member application form.
Next Alkmaar Café we will be celebrating Dutch Kingsday, May 1st, from 7pm at the Rising Sun in Bath. Dresscode: orange! Games, Pub Quizz, Dutch snacks and music.
