Bonfire Night went with a Bang this year and think most people agreed that the firework display was the most spectacular we have ever had. Mark your cards for the 5 th November next year. The event is always popular and we will try to increase numbers so that more people can join us.

The event gallery is HERE

Our Christmas Ball is progressing nicely with only a few tickets left. If you fancy joining us for the best party to start the festive season then buy your ticket before the are all gone here:

More details are announced on the entertainment and we will start to reveal some of the tremedous prizes that we have been able to get from Amsterdam Businesses very shortly.

At the remembrance service on the 12 th November I met the Mayor of Amsterdam (pictured with me above) for the first time and was able to thank him for the meeting he arranged following the EU referendum. He told me it was only a natural reaction to the result to reassure our British contingent in Amsterdam. I would like to thank again Eberhard van der Laan in print as well for his positive reaction to our situation.

Burns Night tickets will go on sale shortly. The British School has increased the size of its hall so we are having some discussions about increasing the capacity slightly for this event. It always sells out extremely quickly so be sure to get your tickets as soon as you can

We have some smaller events coming up many of which you can sign up for via our meetup page: Meetup/

Booming Business 29 th November

This is our Business Networking event in conjuction with a number of other business and social clubs in Amsterdam. If you are an entrepreneur looking to increase your network and gain new business associates and clients this could be the event for you.

This months edition has 3 restaurant reviews from yours truly and great review of the current Marylin Monroe exhibition.  We also have a new organisation ICAP asking for some help with a survey on international children and education.

Hope to see you at one of these events soon.
