Dr. Andréa Kroon, June 16 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Social and political developments in the Golden Age have contributed to the development of Freemasonry. This initiation society originated in the United Kingdom, did not take its modern form until the beginning of the 18th century and then spread to mainland Europe. The Dutch East India Company experienced a heyday in the Golden Age. Just as she began to lose her power, freemasonry flourished. Along the trade route around The Cape to Asia, many lodges were established, which were of great importance for travelers.
Guest curator Dr. Andréa Kroon talks about the roots of Freemasonry in the Golden Age and its later role in international trade.
Participation in the lecture: € 7.50 excl. Museum entry

As a result of explosions of old gas pipes in The Hague, Omroep West has paid attention to this, in particular to see whether there are old gas pipes in the neighborhood. Check this link for more information.
Karin Dijkstra recently started the Power walking club The Hague. I have flipped a lot in the neighborhood, but would like to bring it to the attention in another fun way.
Power walking is for people who need to feel fitter and healthier. Your neighborhood newspaper contains more articles about health and care. Would you like to write something about power walking?
Power walking is relatively new in The Hague. It is easily accessible and also very nice for people who need to move more (outside) and make new contacts!
I start on Thursday 27 June and then go for a walk in the Scheveningsebos and along the Waterpartij. I think it is important to walk in this area to bring it to the attention again in a positive way. There is a lot of negative news about opponents of the expansion of Madurodam, the adjustments that will be made in this part of the park and forest, and there is currently also fear of walking through the Scheveningen forest after the recent murder there.
I hope you enjoy writing a piece that will make us happy again.
Power walking makes me very happy and partly because we are going to do this in such a beautiful area!
Concertmaster at the Dutch Bach Society Sayuri Yamagata (baroque violin) and Noriko Amano (harpsichord) perform their authentic performance of J.S. in the English church of The Hague on Thursday 13 June. Bach – BWV 1014-1019: 6 Sonaten für Violine und obligates Cembalo performed. In these pieces, the melody is not only played by the violin, but also by the harpsichord. Visit this unique concert, because these beautiful sonatas by Bach are not often performed in one program!

From ‘t Klokhuis, message, Elisabeth König:
From July 14th to October 6th there is a special exhibition with a bit of nostalgia. Work of Rien Homburg, already exhibited in 1997 ’at Klokhuis, and has since died.
I suddenly thought of him when I bought a pair of shoes in his old special / shoe store (now Wassenaar) and luckily his daughter still had some paintings of his!
