Enjoy a whole lot of Holland

Have your say

SHEFFIELDERS are being invited to go Dutch at an event next week designed to explain more about culture in the Netherlands.

The free event Tuesday, from 9.30am until 2pm, is at Sheffield University’s Jessop West Exhibition Space off the Brook Hill roundabout.

Visitors can find out about Dutch culture, language and history through interactive learning, along with role play, quizzes and discussions.

Sessions will include ‘How Dutch almost became the world language’, an investigation of the Dutch obsession with diminutive words and an exploration of Dutch attitudes towards multiculturalism.

Dutch student James Fennell, 21, said: “The event is a unique opportunity to discover all about Dutch language and history, as there is a lot more to the Netherlands than just clogs and tulips!”
