Terug naar het Begin festival

Intimate performances in medieval churches

Groningen churches guide your way during the annual Terug naar het Begin (Back to the Beginning) Cultural Festival. During a long weekend in May, these ancient buildings will be the stage and backdrop for art, music, stories and theatre. Map your own route and set out on a cultural exploratory expedition.

A blend of art

While still under the influence of that dance performance, take the meandering roads and old seawalls to an experimental poetry recital. Then head out to an exhibition of prints. Terug naar het Begin is a varied blend of music, theatre, poetry, literature, dance and visual art. Hidden in the old churches of Appingedam and surroundings, experience surprising, moving and enchanting things.
