Culture

If you would like to have a taste of culture, ‘de Rand’ centres are just the ticket, offering music, theatre, cinema, exhibitions – the list goes on and on. There are also activities for all the family or for children.

Not to worry if your  Dutch is a bit shaky, the centres provide all the information you need about  learning and practising Dutch.

Everybody is welcome to watch our performances. Most of them feature a language icon to help you choose an activity. This will enable you to become acquainted with our community centres and practice your Dutch – if you wish.
