Join us for a talk about the Brits (or rather the English) & Brexit with former UK correspondent Titia Ketelaar.

The World harmony orchestra presents a programme of hope and reflection. On 'Bevrijdingsdag' the WHO will perform pieces by composers who have been affected by humanitarian conflicts in the past and present.
