NANR and Nuffic Neso Russia warmly welcome you to attend the annual Sinterklaas celebration on 11 December.
Sinterklaas will arrive from the Netherlands on a special mission to greet all guests and wish you a Happy New Year and Merry Christmas, hand out presents and play a few Dutch songs.
To summon the magic winter mood we will show you the Dutch movie “Finn,” a family film about childhood, dreams and mysteries. It tells the story of a boy who lives with his father in the countryside. He would like to make music, but his father wants him to play football, just like all the other boys. Near an abandoned farm, Finn meets an old man who plays the violin so beautifully that he is completely enchanted. While his father thinks he is out playing football, Finn secretly goes to the farm to practise. Is Finn the only one that understands how mesmerising music can be? Or is something else afoot?
We invite all alumni and Dutch expats and their partners and children to attend our Sinterkaas event and enjoy this wonderful movie with us.
We will start the evening with a festive reception with Dutch dishes. After the film you will try traditional Dutch winter desserts (oliebollen, yes!) and have a chance to take a photo with Sinterklaas himself. Everyone that comes will receive a lovely present if you are in need of further motivation to attend.
For those of you that can’t live without challenges and quizzes we have prepared a competition. Winners will receive special Dutch prizes during the evening. Learn more about the quiz here.
