November Festival Month is back! And how? This year we're taking a slightly different approach to November Festival Month, but not as you might expect. This year we are going for an extra large, extra warming and extra illuminating edition: November Festival Month XL! because we have some catching up to do. From October to December we are presenting loads of theatre, music, poetry, visual arts, film and dance. With, of course, the old, trusted festivals, but also many new events. An entire autumn full of festivals in Leeuwarden...you don't want to miss this!

Praamverhaal: Peer Gynt | October 7 to 29

Join us on a poetic and magical cultural cruise through the canals of Leeuwarden. From October 7 to 29, the story of Peer Gynt  will be told in a very special way. This is done on a barge and through the voices of seven actors, which you hear via headphones, supplemented with music and video projections that appear on the quays.

Media Art Festival | September 24 to October 10

The Media Art Festival 2021 will take place from September 24 to October 10 in the Stationskwartier (Snekertrekweg 1 Leeuwarden). A selection of Young Masters  will present unique art and light installations during the festival.

LUNA | September 30 to October 2

Almost a year after we hoped to realize LUNA – Leeuwarden Urban Night Adventure, we can finally enter the city for a fascinating, impressive and at times breathtaking art experience in the beautiful city center of Leeuwarden. From September 30 to October 2, from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM, you will encounter impressive light installations scattered throughout the city center.

Kneppelfreed | October 22 to November 28

Seventy years after the important protest in front of the Palace of Justice in Leeuwarden, Kneppelfreed is the reason for a special performance. A top cast will play under the direction of Sjoeke-Marije Wallendal and the artistic direction of Jos Thie. The performance takes the form of a special court case and takes the viewer through time through three court cases in which language plays a role. It is not only about Frisian but also about diversity in general. Mr. Abel Hertzberg's argument from 1951 is still excitingly topical.

Op Klompen door de Dessa | 13 - 24 October

Op Klompen door de Dessa is anything but a normal theatrical performance. Take an active part and choose your own storyline during the performance! In a unique theater form, with a mix of storytelling and gaming elements, the story is told of a Dutch conscript soldier who had to help restore authority over the former colony in the Dutch East Indies.

BresK | 3 - 7 November

BresK is the new theatre festival in Theater de Bres in Leeuwarden. During this first edition, the theme of classical music is central, but in the broadest sense of the word. Because besides music there is so much more! From 3 to 7 November, Theater de Bres will present a packed programme around the festival: from music, workshops to dance and film performances.

Noordelijk Film Festival | 10 - 14 November

The 41st edition of the festival is scheduled again from November 10 to 14, 2021. With a trusted programme, in a trusted environment. Naturally, the situation calls for a partlially different approach and different choices. Different, but familiar. Ticket sales will start soon!

Explore the North | 19 - 21 November

Explore the North is the city festival from Leeuwarden for music, literature, theater and more. The official edition of Explore the North 2021 will take place from 19 to 21 November. Although this edition will be a little different than usual, with artists such as Spinvis, Arnon Grunberg, Bekono and Simone Atanga, it will be one you won't forget!

Verhalenavond | 26 November

On Verhalenavond (Story Evening), all of Friesland meets to listen to stories:  stories in living rooms, hospitals, cafes, government buildings, at associations and companies. This year's theme is 'Language fan my deer'. A broad theme about which a range of stories can be told and that is exactly what the organization of Verhalenavond aims at. Hundreds of storytellers throughout Fryslân at special locations.

Decemberlicht | 19 December - 9 January

Follow the blue lantern light between the Oldehoofsterkerkhof and the Jacobijnerkerkhof from December 19 to January 9 and you are guaranteed to encounter twelve special light images. December light illuminates the dark streets of the historic city centre with unique projections. From language, text and poems to moving light illustrations.
