St Maarten, who is renowned for sharing his cloak with a beggar, is de patron saint of Utrecht. So it won’t come as a surprise that the feast of St Maarten, which revolves around bonds and solidarity, is a time for celebration for Utrecht. Normally, this is quite a big event, but as a result of the coronavirus pandemic things will be different this year. The good news is that you can still look at the wonderful light sculptures that are normally carried through the city in the St Maarten Parade. On Wednesday 11 November, RTV Utrecht will be showing a film about the St Maarten Route which you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home.

> 11 November at 19.00 and 21.00 on RTV Utrecht
