On Saturday, 7 September 2013, a theme of global culture will sweep through The Hague during the very first Embassy Festival, an international event spotlighting the many different cultures that reside in The Hague. Festival goers can soak up a truly innovative and transnational one-day programme presenting music, activities, art, theatre, culinary delights, debates and readings on The Hague's Lange Voorhout. Organised in close cooperation with the Municipality of The Hague's Department of International Affairs and The Hague's many embassies, the Embassy Festival promises to surprise and appeal to all senses. The festival, which is a sequel to last year's The European Life I Live, plans to evolve into an annual event taking visitors all around the world in one exciting weekend at the start of every cultural season.
