Cultural activities in Aalsmeer
Volunteers run Café Bacchus in Aalsmeer. They organise a wide range of cultural activities; from discussion evenings and literary meetings to cabaret performances, film nights and music performances in all kinds of genres. Events such as Filmhuis Bacchus, Jazz Club Bacchus, Theatre Bacchus and Poppodium Bacchus are well-known names in Aalsmeer. Look on the website for an overview of activities.
Based on the idea that culture belongs to everyone, Bacchus is an accessible café where the activities are either free or low priced. It is common for the volunteers go around ‘with a cap’ during the break. Bacchus is not big; when the stage is in use there is room for around 55 seats for the audience. In a ‘normal’ café set-up, such as during jazz concerts, there is room for sixty to seventy spectators.
