In 2016 the organisation Landleven (Country Life) is celebrating its twentieth anniversary with a special edition of the Beleef Landleven (Experience Country Life) event. Note down 9, 10 and 11 September in your diary, as these are the dates when this special event, organised jointly by Landleven and the Open Air Museum, will be taking place.
Modern-day trends have their origins in traditional skills and crafts from days gone by. Visitors to the event will learn, for example, how (home-grown) fruit and vegetables can be preserved in a dishwasher and they can hone their survival skills by learning how to start a fire without matches. For those who want to take things a little easier there will be a chance to create a felt birdbox or take part in a landscape painting workshop. And what will there be for children? Learning how to climb trees 'professionally' is certain to get them away from their games console!
Beleef Landleven at the Netherlands Open Air Museum has something for people of all ages who love country life and are interested in animals, food, gardening and other creative activities in and around the home.
