“New Year's Eve in a Different Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We went to Oude Libertas for the New Year's Eve picnic and concert. Initially picnicking on the lawn, we then went on into the theatre. The performance of the band was very enjoyable and we had a great time. We also liked that patrons were given a free glass of sparkling wine at midnight and that everyone toasted with each other.

“Amazing market !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Visited the market on a Saturday. The market filled with unique food experiences and hand made products - contrast to the normal cheap fast food and plastic markets. An amazing experience complimented by great niche concert. Well worth a visit!
