Concerts, cinema, street food, sport, expo and a chance to relax – our Nutshuis garden will be blooming, buzzing and swinging the summer away! Set against a backdrop of beehives, a lilypond and an organic vegetable patch, you’ll find the terrace of Juni Café, perfect for a delicious fresh breakfast, buffet lunch and a glass of wine.
JUNE garden programme:
Juni 17 : Garden Concert on the occasion of the opening of the City of Sounds exhibition
JULY Garden programme:
Sitting in the Nutshuis garden, you’ll have front-row seats for three summer Friday-afternoon carillon concerts. The shade of the garden, far from the hustle and bustle of the city, is the perfect place to listen to these classical concerts. Our own Hague city carillonist Gijsbert Kok starts the series of concerts with American saxophonist Harry Cherrin. Their programme includes Bach’s Partita for solo violin BWV 1001.
The first Satuday in July we start with the German Alegrias Guitar Trio. This trio makes their Dutch debut with music that perfectly complements a warm day out of doors. From tango and flamenco to amazing film music and a classical repertoire that includes Grieg and Tchaikovsky.
One week later, July 8th, we welcome the New European Ensemble. This year they'll play ethereal French, Spanish and South American music by composers such as Villa-Lobos, Ibert and Françaix.
August 26th they'll return for another concert.
Start your Hoogtij route on July 7th at 18.00 in the Nutshuis garden with an organic meal in Juni Café, a visit to our City of Sounds and Every day’s a birthday exhibitions and a performance by Nicola Unger.
AUGUST: Senses of Cinema: open-air films, concert & streetfood
This summer’s Senses of Cinema open-air programme at Het Nutshuis cannot fail to get your juices flowing. It features four films with music at the forefront, accompanied by four live music performances and four fresh and exciting buffets provided by our Juni Café chefs. Film, music, and street food in our cosy, sheltered Nutshuis garden. Can you think of a better way to spend a sultry summer evening?
The musical tastes in the films being shown in this summer series are as varied as the films themselves:
Saturday August 5: A female jazz band serves as a means of escape for two men on the run in Billy Wilder’s comedy classic Some Like It Hot, with Marilyn Monroe playing the role of a lifetime.
Saturday August 12: In the phenomenal hybrid documentary All These Sleepless Nights by the young and talented Polish filmmaker Michal Marczak, two Polish lads go from one house/techno party to the next, spending every night in a world of drink and drugs and never going to bed before dawn.
Saturday August 19 : An Afro-American assassin working for the Italian mafia takes refuge in hip hop in Jim Jarmusch’s New York epic Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.
Saturday August 26: British rebel Alex Cox joined up with Dutch cameraman Robby Muller to bring punk sensitivity to Los Angeles in the magical, realistic and hilarious film, Repo Man.
We have free WIfi and a watertap. The Jan Hendrikstraat entrance is open from Mondays to Friday from 8.30 hours untul 17.30 hours. Satudays from 11.00 hours to 16.00 hours.
See you in the Nutsgarden!
