I am late with the list for May, but no need to panic, there is still enough time to make plans and buy tickets! So here it is: festivals, open air theatre, poem writing workshops and then some.

  • 24H Oost on 12 May. Plenty of activities to choose from (most of them with free entrance): walking tours, culinary experiences, soap making, artistic performances and even a workshop for creating poems using an old-fashioned typewriter! I’ll have to spend some time picking the ones I can attend.
  • Vondelpark Open Air Theatre will open its doors for the season. Again, I’ll have to pick something from their agenda.
  • Sunday Market in Westerpark, 6 May.
  • Vegan Festival, also on 6 May. They say you should be there early to be sure you get tickets, let’s see if I can do that.

  • Rolling Kitchen at the Westergasfabriek, May 9-13. Hurray for glorious food and free music!
  • The monthly visit to Foam can’t miss from the list.
  • I was thinking to join one of the True Story nights at Mezrab (on 11 May) and, on the same location, Ready, Set, Play! — second edition, on 20 May.
  • To end the month in style, I’ll go see the new play of Orange Theatre Company, The Pillowman, on 26 or 27 May.

Hope you get some inspiration from my list!
