Writers Unlimited Winternachten Festival The Hague is the most important international literature event of the Netherlands. The festival brings together writers, poets, thinkers and musicians from all parts of the world together with their audiences. They share their work, their experiences, their dreams and ideas. Across borders of languages and cultures. These encounters are celebrations of the word, feasts of discovery and recoginition, with an open eye for everything that globalisation means for society. With Dutch language programmes mixed in among international ones, the festival bridges the gap between Dutch literary audiences and those coming from abroad.
Tickets Tickets for the festival can be booked at the boxoffice of Theater aan het Spui. By telephone (+31 70 3465272), email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or online via writersunlimited.nl/en.
