Last year was amazing! We were sold out within 48 hours, had a great atmosphere and everybody dressed up perfectly in orange! The more reason to host another event this year. Just bigger, better and more professional! Don't get disappointed and buy your tickets so you can be part of this event!
See you there!
Ps: we also organise an Queensday After-Party for the Consulate-General reception on Tuesday this year (again).

* Every year on April 30 the Netherlands turns completely orange as we celebrate the Queen’s birthday. She turned 75 this year. On itself this would have been special already.
Additionally, we celebrate the 200-year anniversary of the monarchy this year.
Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands recently announced that she would abdicate in favour of her son Crown Prince Willem Alexander after 33 years in power. Beatrix's abdication ends more than 100 years of female reign on the Dutch throne. Willem Alexander, 45, will become the first Dutch king since Willem III, who reigned until his death in 1890. As from next year we will celebrate Willem Alexander's birthday on April 27.
** Kids (under 18) are welcome for free, but will have to leave the premise at 6pm when RSA regulations are more strict.
