Welcome to the Community Centre de Lijsterbes, one of ‘de Rand's’ seven such centres.

We offer you a wide-ranging cultural programme near to your home. Music, theatre, films, school plays and exhibitions – something to suit all tastes … It is also the chance to become acquainted with people and associations in your neighbourhood.

You may not know any Dutch or very little but do not let that put you off. Some knowledge of the Dutch language may be required in certain cases but not always. We will be delighted to help anybody keen on learning our language. And our centre is always there when you feel ready to start practising your newly acquired language skills.

for children 4 – 9 years - Dutch language immersion 'The restaurant'

This course helps children to learn and try out new words and sentences, thanks to ‘De Horizon’. The idea is not to create a school environment, as the children are encouraged to practice Dutch on the basis of stories, songs and games.
