The municipality will begin replacing unsafe poplars. About 2,200 poplars in the city are in poor condition. That is dangerous and therefore they are being cut down and replaced. The first logging permits have been requested for poplars in the boroughs Escamp, Scheveningen and Loosduinen.  See more information here

Solo's @The Sea

1 to 31 May – Talented choreographers, dancers and actors will present a solo or monologue with the beach as their backdrop.

Talented choreographers, dancers and actors will present a solo or monologue in ‘Solo’s @The Sea’. The Hague-based dance company De Dutch Don’t Dance Division (DeDDDD) is organising another edition of this mini festival at beach pavilion De Fuut from 1 to 31 May.

A dancer or actor must have a strong personality in order to perform a good solo. A performance on the beach means there is no backdrop apart from the ever changing view of the sea, sky and dunes.

The concept behind ‘Solo’s @The Sea’ was initiated by artistic leaders Thom Stuart and Rinus Sprong for the first time in 2008. It is now part of the annual programme of De Dutch Don’t Dance Division. Every solo piece is specially created for this location.

The audience will enjoy an ever-changing and intimate programme during a 3-course dinner. Thanks to the relaxed atmosphere at beach pavilion De Fuut, it will be a very ‘light’ performance. A bit of Dutch may be spoken.

‘Solo’s @The Sea’ will be performed by De Dutch Don’t Dance Division from Wednesday, 1 May to Friday, 31 May at beach pavilion De Fuut on the Zuiderstrand (Strandslag 10) in The Hague. Take Tram 12 to the Markenseplein stop.

The evening starts at 18.30 hrs. Tickets cost € 42.50 including a 3-course dinner and can be reserved in advance by sending an email to

On April 26th the annual “ribbon rain” took place again. The Royal Honors were presented by Mayor Paulien Krikke in the Diligentia theater and I was allowed to be present as an applicant for one of the ribbons.

No fewer than 25 city-dwellers were eligible and 9 became Knights in the Order of Orange-Nassau. I listened with admiration to our mayor. She not only had a personal word for everyone (although put on paper by her staff) and an amical “hug” with the photo, but she also managed every time, without faltering , to pronounce the following sentence: “It is my honor and great pleasure to report that His Majesty the King is pleased for you to be a Member / Knight in the Order of Orange Nassau.” And repeated about 35 times!
