Westerveld Fair in Westerveld Memorial Park on 11 June

Westerveld Cemetery & Crematorium (Duin en Kruidbergerweg 2-6, Driehuis the Netherlands) will organise the second Westerveld Fair on Sunday 11 June from 10:30 until 16:00. The Art & Nature-themed Fair is freely accessible to all.

Nature in a prominent position
With its rolling dunes and diverse plants and trees, Westerveld is a perfect setting for the Fair. “The special monuments and history also make this location unique”, says Carla Bosua, director of Westerveld. There will be a wide range of exhibitors at the Fair, including trade, the arts and nature. There will also be a falconer and members of staff will be organising a ‘nature’ workshop. “With live music, a catering pavilion serving all kinds of delicious food and children’s entertainment, there is something for everyone. This year, we will be increasing our focus on nature and natural products. We will be offering herb plants and cut firewood, for instance, and we will provide information about plants. We’re convinced we’ll make a lot of people happy again!”

Historic theatre
Those interested in history will be able to enjoy an open-air play about famous historical figures who found their final resting place in the memorial park. One such figure is Jan Jacob Slauerhoff (1898), one of the most important Dutch poets and novelists. Brother and sister Louis (1883) and Heintje (1888) Davids – variety artists and big names in Dutch cabaret – and Artis figurehead Frits Portielje (1886) will also be featured.
