Invitation for February 27 — a South African evening!

International Cafe @ Facebook

Dear International students,

Many of you have done your exams and are getting well into the new semester. It’s time to invite you all to our coming event! And for those who have just arrived in Groningen we would also like to extend a hearty welcome! Come, and bring your friends.


February 27 — Some friends from South Africa will give a presentation and share some music from their country. We will have delicious soup (also vegetarian) and bread and homemade cakes, and plenty of tea and coffee.

Our monthly meetings at het Pand are held on the last Saturday of each month from 18:00 until 22:00 o’clock. See our website for information about the location and how to find us. Our evenings are free, but if you would like to make a small contribution for the food there is a big red box for voluntary gifts.
