During the 12th edition of ShoppingNight, the biggest shopping event of the Netherlands, The Hague’s City Centre will turn into typical French beach resorts where visitors can enjoy an evening full of entertainment, discounts and surprising activities.
Martinique, Saint-Tropez and of course Bretagne! On Friday the 29th of June The Hague’s City Centre will turn blue, white and red, Viva la France! During ShoppingNight all the shops are open until midnight and shop owners are organising festive events, activities, free workshops and tastings in, and outside of their stores.
A special night out in The Hague
Besides shopping, this special evening gives you a great opportunity to explore the city and enjoy a great night out. On the Grote Marktstraat, (on this evening; Paris Plage), you can explore a typical French market with the sweet tunes of a vinyl DJ. Culture lovers can enjoy the beautiful acts from international street theatre company Theater Tol with their impressive ‘Bike Parade’. On the Denneweg you can start your evening with a typical French ‘aperitive’ in one of the bars and restaurants.
Later in the evening the Denneweg will turn into a street theatre experience with small musical performances such as the local band
Tess et les Moutons who will enchant you with their French chansons. All of this in an intimate setting, under the trees and under little coloured lights! The entire city centre will be decorated in a French maritime style. A huge Eiffel tower will rise up in the Passsage, the Boekhorststraat will turn tropical and you simply can’t miss the giant deck chair on the Hoogstraat.
A warm welcome in all shops
All participating shops will welcome their customers with a special French touch during the whole evening. Champagne, Prosecco, cocktails and snacks, you can expect it all! Join the French tasting at Dille & Kamille or collect free fashion/skin/make-up advice in many boutiques. At cosmetics shop Lush customers get the chance to make their own product. At Atelier Camp & Co you can have your own jewellery cleaned for only €1 each!
