Explore the North.

Ground frost, dew on empty washing lines, frost on the window. Winter strikes hard in the historic heart of Leeuwarden. Time for a festival that warms you from the inside!

Explore the North uses the centre of Leeuwarden as a beautiful backdrop for the best writers, musicians, dancers and actors. Artists and performers from far away or from around the corner, but preferably a combination of both, come to Leeuwarden to show their skills and create new work. Your task is to leave the beaten track behind in this maze of alleyways and literature, churches and music.

And the team behind Explore the North will do more than just organise a great festival! They will also program performances for Lân fan taal in the Prinsentuin in Leeuwarden.
