  1. Hello there, I would very much like A.R.T Foods to feature on the above list if possible as we are a Dutch Family Selling Dutch Products in the UK. Bitterballen, Krokette, Frikandellen, KipKorn and Bami Toppers are just some of the yummy things on offer. Would really love to hear back on this,
    Kind Regards Annelies van Mourik

  2. Could you please amend the contact details of the Orde van den Prince?

  3. Dutch Club London, some former details. I worked there in 1973 as host when it was still at Sackville Street, next to Picadilly Circus. A real club for self proclaimed gentlemen, businessmen who frequented between London and Amsterdam. Leather upholstery, newspapers, breakfast and a quick evening bite, cigars.
    In 1973 the 100-year lease ended which forced the Dutch Club out, because the rent went up 3000%. It then supposedly moved to the outskirts and The Royal Thames Yacht Club could be one of these. In 2014 I did find some trace but not since 2015.

  4. Ik ben op zoek voor een reünie van de 6 klas van de lagere school in Rotterdam Kralingen naar Hanneke van Ommeren. Ze is met haar familie in 1964(1965 geëmigreerd naar Engeland. Hebben jullie gegevens van haar. Ze is nu 63.

  5. Dutch focus at StAnza 2018: 7 – 11 March

    I hope you will be interested to know that we plan to have a substantial Dutch focus at our festival next March. StAnza is Scotland’s International Poetry Festival which takes place each spring in the historic city of St Andrews. Next year will be our 21st annual festival. We are well established as a leading European poetry event, with more than 100 events each year, and audience attendances in excess of 16,000. We regularly attract audiences from across the UK and beyond.

    We have had Dutch poets and artists taking part at the festival many times in the past, however our intention for next year is to go much further and make the three Dutch languages and cultures (Dutch, Frisian and Flemish) a focus for our festival under the working title of “Going Dutch”.

    I have already invited six poets to come and read, including the Dutch Poet Laureate, and I am in touch with various other people in the Netherlands and Belgium with a view to present exhibitions of graphic poetry, Dutch poetry films, a documentary film about a Frisian poet, two Dutch sound installations and I hope several other installations or exhibitions, and that we will also have talks about Dutch poetry and culture and a translation workshop. We hope that the exhibition will raise the profile of Dutch poets, film makers, etc. and of the Dutch languages and culture more generally.

    We will launch our core programme online on our website on 30th November, with a filter to identify events connection to our “Going Dutch” focus, and will add to it up until the festival. Do let me know if I can give you any further information.
