Dutch dinner and Ice skating - Thursday, November 22nd, 18:00 - Vestingbar

As the days are getting darker and colder we think it is a good time for a real Dutch winter event!

So here is what we plan to do: we will have some Dutch winter dishes served in the Vestingbar from 18.00 on and then we all go ice skating at the IJsbaan Twente.

What do you pay and what do you get?

For P-NUT members, we subsidize the fee to 5 euros. This includes Dutch dinner and your entrance fee for skating! Not a P-NUT member yet? Be one on the spot!

If you have your own skates, bring them along. If you don’t have your own skates, you can rent them at Ijsbaan Twente for 5.50 euros (or more if you want really fancy ones!).


Date: Thursday, November 22nd

Time: 18:00 till you are tired of skating!

Meeting place: Vestingbar at the UT

Price: 5 euros (includes dinner + entrance at IJsbaan) to be paid on spot (non-member: 13 euros)
