Festival Dates

16/10/2020 > 24/10/2020


The Hague, Netherlands


Each year, during the October Autumn Break, the international children’s arts festival ‘De Betovering’ (The Enchantment) takes place in The Hague in the Netherlands. Children up to 12 years will be treated to some 600 performances and workshops at 55 different locations. The festival is a unique collaboration between a large number of cultural organisations in The Hague.

The most enchanting children’s productions of both Dutch and international origin will be brought to The Hague for nine days of dazzling culture. The programme includes theatre shows as well as dance, music and film and those highlighted as ‘No-Dutch-Required’ in the brochure are all suitable for non-Dutch-speaking children. Make sure to look out for the various street theatre acts in the city centre too.

Besides the performances, the festival offers a huge range of workshops, some of which are suitable for non-Dutchspeaking children, where they can try their hand at dance, music, filmmaking, painting, theatre and much, much more! Make sure to join in the fun at one of the festival centres.

See the website for further details on all activities. Please take note of the NDR (No Dutch Required) activities when viewing the full programme.
