Activities


The IWC welcomes ideas for activities and events from all members. Some of our activities occur regularly each month and others are based on common interest, passion and availability.

Coffee Morning

Coffee Morning

The first Thursday of every month is coffee morning at the IWC. This is an informal activity and no RSVP is required. Coffee morning is a great time to catch up with familiar faces and make new friends. Each month we meet in a central location, have some coffee and chat. Very often there are happenings such as cake sales, book give-a-ways and special presentations.  If you are new to the club, this is a great way to meet a lot of us at one time. Children are also welcome!

Cooking Club

Cooking Club

A monthly rotation or self-organised hands-on workshops, demonstrations, potluck, eating out, or discussions over food, nutrition and the passion for cooking.  A core group of members regularly participate in this activity group. Workshops are held in a private home and a limited number of spaces are available. If space is available for more participants, the activity is opened up for members to join. The cost of the workshop (ingredients) is shared by participants.

Evening Meal

Evening Meal

Breda is known for its Bourgondisch lifestyle which means that we love our food, drink and social activities! Each month a restaurant in town is chosen. Chances are good that you will have a tasty meal with some great company. This activity works well for those of us who work and cannot attend the daytime meet-ups. Members are advised to sign up in time as seats are limited based on the availability in the restaurant.

Museum Vitis

Museum Visits

For the art lovers and critics among us there is a group dedicated to visiting museums and exhibitions currently running in the Netherlands. The museum group meets every month but the date is not fixed as the schedule as it largely dependent on which exhibitions are currently running. If museums are your passion you will find many different exhibitions available throughout the year. Should you plan on attending these visits regularly, a museum card is a good idea.

Silver Foxes

Silver Foxes

Silver Foxes is an activity group for members that enjoy daytime activities. Activities may include visits to interesting venues, lunching in and around Breda or just meeting for tea/coffee at a member’s house. The main focus of this group is socialising. Activity outings are always mobility friendly and all members are welcome.

Every other Tuesday the MahJong group members get together to play against each other in groups of 3 or 4 . Coffee & tea are served and members bring a potluck dish to share for lunch. If you are unfamiliar with the game you are welcome to attend as a spectator to learn. This is a popular and very social IWC activity. We welcome enthusiastic new participants. The more the merrier!
