During the day you can work in the Office Garden. For the more active there is yoga and salsa. Every Sunday there is free live music during the Sunday Sounds. On Saturdays you can go to the market for books, clothes or records. There are also jam sessions, theater performances, talk shows and concerts. You can always come by for the outdoor exhibitions, a game of jeu de boule, read a book in the grass or the Stout Rabbit scavenger hunt. In the Leeshuis you can read, bring or pick up books.
Stroll through the market, have a snack and a drink. And who knows, you might find something beautiful: vintage pants, a record by that one obscure indie band or a special book. We can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday. That's why you'll find a different market in the Garden all summer long! The Great Clothes Swap, Colorful Noord Festival, Independent Label Market and a book market.
For music lovers, local residents and gardeners, we present Sunday Sounds every Sunday from May to August. A nice afternoon with live music under the old plane tree. Also this year, our roommate Excelsior Recordings will fill the program with their finest artists. In addition, there are Sunday afternoon programs in collaboration with the music festival Into The Great Wide Open and EurosonicNoorderslag. Free entry, donations welcome.
Tired of fluorescent lights? Is it time for a breath of fresh air? During office hours, Tolhuistuin opens the Office Garden for anyone who wants to work outside. Living in the city we spend less and less time in nature, while nature stimulates our creativity and health. Even when it rains we are nice and dry under the awning. We provide the basic ingredients for a productive working day: WiFi, electricity and water. Take coffee or tea with you in your thermos cup. Read more...
Come and jam! From guitar to musical saw; bring your stringed instrument to Tolhuistuin, because this summer you can participate in acoustic jams led by Laurens Joensen. Every edition Laurens invites a band to jam with the audience. Are you not so musically inclined? You are also very welcome to come and listen. One of the few types of folk music, bluegrass has a jazz-like structure: one instrument plays a solo, while all the others play the accompaniment. Ideal for a jam! Read more...
Dancing in the Garden
Until August 31, we will dance again in the garden! Every Wednesday there are workshops and a number of practice evenings on Sunday. Most workshops are Afro Latin couple dances such as Salsa, Bachata and Kizomba, but there are also Boogie Woogie workshops, Ladies Styling and Rueda de Casino. For both novice and advanced dancers.
The navigation address of the entrance to the Garden is Tolhuisweg 3.
