Top of my list of favourite Haarlem outings is the annual Winterparade! On Saturday 9 January 2016, we were treated to a mind-blowing evening of live dance and music table-top performance; a very decent 3-course meal; and a silent disco – all made better by the venue: Haarlem’s grand Bavo Cathedral in the city’s main square. This is an annual event that takes place in late December and early January in cathedrals in Amsterdam and Haarlem. Tickets cost €45 exclusive drinks. Brilliant!!!
