Take note children (and parents): on the first Sunday of the Dutch autumn half-term holiday, the city is transformed into one big cultural playground. From theatre performances, musical shows and animated film to tasting edible plants, building with life-size meccano and an attempt to break the world record for the largest whoopee cushion. There’s something for everyone, even your parents. And it’s all free. What more could you ask for?
