BREDA PHOTO FESTIVAL until 21st October

In 2012, the BredaPhoto international Photo festival takes place for the fifth time in the city center of Breda. The festival started as a small-scale and idealistic initiative to bring high quality-photography to a broader, regional public, but quickly developed into a major photo festival that is now internationally recognizable. The 2010 edition welcomed an estimated 50.000 visitors.

Sanders Pumpkins

Exposition showing how pumpkins are cultured in The Netherlands. You can also visit the greenhouse with tropical vegetables.
Refreshments are available for our visitors. Activities for the children
The exact opening times can be found here.

Circo Circolo Festival

Velder Estate in the South of The Netherlands, 11 to 21 October. The festival site is open every day from noon to midnight. You can find the times of each show in the programme.

No elephants and tigers, but the esteemed audience. No sawdust and chimpanzee droppings, but colourful tents reaching up to the sky, thrilling and awakening curiosity. No fat MC who grandly announces separate acts.
But a whirlpool that leads to modern circus theatre in which all the disciplines are forged into a wondrous world, personified by top artists. The International Circus Theatre Festival Circo Circolo, which settled five years ago at the Velder Estate in Brabant, sucked Dutch audiences for the first time into this whirlpool and hence into the magic of new international circus theatre.

Anyone who dares enter the tents of Circo Circolo in the second decade of the third millennium witnesses these stunning evolution of traditional circus into modern circus theatre, from the development of craftsman-like entertainment into an autonomous, high-quality, entertaining and kaleidoscopic dramatic art form.
