The Hollands Historisch Festijn (Historical Festival Holland) collaborates with partners in The Hague who help bring our rich history to life. Our partners include museums, guided tours, guided canal boat rides and walking tours. Special thanks go to Haags Historisch Museum, the Historical Museum of The Hague and its director Marco van Baalen who shares our belief in the power of living history and to Stichting Haagse Dingen and its Dennis Simonis, who worked with us to make a video of the event and share it with a wide public. Our thanks also go to everyone who helped us make our dream of our Fatherland’s History a reality at significant historic locations, and in particular, the Binnenhof. We recognise the efforts of many people who crept into the skin of the characters or who support these characters in other ways. Thank you. Together, anything is possible!
