Hi <<First Name>>,
Oh November, you're always a sort of in-between month!

The vibrant colors of autumn are on their way out, but it's not quite the holiday season yet. But between you and us, it's one of the best months at City Central.

From nighttime yoga in the A-kerk to making your own Christmas cards or celebrating Sinterklaas with us a bit early, there's something for everyone this November.

RECOGNIZE THE CITY
CITY CUPS

There are exciting new arrivals coming to our #GroningenMade section of the shop just in time for the holiday season. First up: City Cups!

With City Cups, Jozephine Duker and Willem Van Landeghem from studio Unit 30 wish to represent Grunn in an original and meaningful way.

The first three to be released in the series are the Martini Tower, Korenbeurs, and Groninger Museum. These unique cups are made by hand and packed individually in a printed box, making them the perfect present for architecture lovers!

SINTERKLAAS AT CITY CENTRAL


This time of year, everyone seems to be talking about Sinterklaas. But some of our international Groningers never have the chance to take part in this tradition!


That's why we are turning our shop into a snuggly Dutch living room and hosting a super “gezellig” Sinterklaas celebration!

We’ll have all the typical goodies: funny gifts, pepernoten, Glühwein, Chocomel and more. Board games and some Sinterklaas tunes will round out an evening you won’t want to miss.

Date: Friday 29th November 
Time: 18:00 - 20:30​
Cost: €5 (including some traditional Sinterklaas snacks and drinks)
Location: City Central Groningen

BOOKAHOLICS BOOK CLUB


Since “Nederlands” and “November” alliterate so nicely, this month we will be reading a Dutch classic: The Evenings (De Avonden) by Gerard Reve.


Never fear: if you aren’t comfortable reading in Dutch, this book is available in English either in our shop or online.

The Evenings catalogues ten winter evenings in the life of a man living in post-World War II Amsterdam and deals with the themes of boredom and loneliness – but we hope your reading experience will not be lonely or boring!


Date: Tuesday 26th November 
Time: 18:30 - 20:00​
Cost: Free
Location: City Central Groningen
