English-language art and culture in The Hague

Theatre and other cultural events in The Hague for an international audience

STET The English Theatre
STET produces and promotes professional English language theatre in The Hague, with productions by international theatre companies. It works in close cooperation with the Koninklijke Schouwburg and is responsible for the international programme of the studio theatre Het Paradijs. Each summer it brings open-air theatre performances to choice locations throughout the Netherlands.

Het Nationale Toneel/The National Theatre
One of the largest theatre companies in the Netherlands. It presents classics and new works with modern significance. They are offering a number of productions with English surtitles.

Movies that Matter
Movies that Matter is an annual March festival which grew out of the Amnesty International Film Festival. It offers an international platform for films and filmmakers dealing with human rights and social justice. Movies that Matter screens and promotes films and stages cinematic events all year round. The film screenings are accompanied by an extensive program of debates and talks.

The Hague UIT Festival
The annual kick off of the Hague’s cultural season. During the event, the Lange Voorhout and the Spuiplen are transformed into a cultural mecca with stages, street theatre, and a cultural market. This is the place to start planning your cultural agenda for the year. The 2013 festival will start on Sunday, September 8th. The website is in Dutch, so we recommend you visit the site, download the plattegrond (map) and/or just get yourself on down there on the 8th and wander a bit.

De Betovering / The Enchantment International Children’s Festival
Each year during the Autumn Break the international children’s art festival ‘De Betovering’ (The Enchantment) takes place in The Hague. From the 18th till the 27th of October 2013, children between the ages of 2 and 14 years will be treated to more than 280 performances and workshops at 40 different locations. A number of performances, the daily rolling programme in our Festival centre and all the dance- and visual arts workshops are suitable for non-Dutch speaking children. Notice the LNP-logos (Language-No-Problem) in the shape of small globes on their website.

Korzo is a multidisciplinary venue and Dance production house in Den Hague’s city center. They see themselves as entrepreneurs in the field of the arts, and have an international focus. Their building has been recently given a modern renovation, and their site is generous with English language information.
