Make your own Christmas cards
Haven’t you had the time to write your grandmother a handwritten Christmas greeting yet? Then come and join the Christmas card making session on Wednesday night! The café will provide everything you need to make your own Christmas cards, so just bring your creativity − and stamps for your letters. If you want someone special to receive a greeting in a good old-fashioned way before Christmas, Thursday will be your last chance to mail it.

Do-it-yourself Eurovision
What better way to end the year than to wallow unapologetically in the nostalgia of the Eurovision Song Contest? Bring your favourite (or strangest) historic performance from Eurovision (pre-2011 only) on DVD disc (only) and it will be shown before a live audience. At the end of the night, a prize will given to the most “exceptional” number. Includes free popcorn.

White night art market
Erotic paper art, handmade totem jewellery and edgy art photographs are just some of the goods you can buy at this rather unconventional Christmas market celebrating the longest day of the year. While shopping, feel the underground vibe at the culture house situated in an old methodist church building.
