“It is all-in the MIX, having a good time!”


Leiden MIX is a non-commercial group run by enthusiastic volunteers. As our community is growing, the management incurs additional cost towards website maintenance, Meetup platform fee and other administrative expenses. More news will follow soon to all members for contribution plan and donations.

Pub Quiz!

Location visible to members

Come and join us at Grand Café de Burcht for hopefully another thrilling quiznight! The quiz will start at 20:30 but we recommend being there earlier (between 20:00 and 20:15) so we can all get a seat, form teams if we have more than six people, get a drink etc. before the quiz starts. the quiz will be presented by Roland of the Carmen San Diego’s this week. The bar charges a fee of €2,50 (in cash) per person. For this, you get to play in the quiz, be served some snacks and are eligible for the prizes should we win. Which usually consists of an assortment of drinks and candy. Check out results, rankings and more here: https://www.facebook.... (https://www.facebook.com/DeBurchtQuizNight/) Now this may sound surprising to some, but if you say here you will go to this meetup, we sort of expect you to attend. We try to save space and wait with the forming of teams until everybody is there but it is always disappointing to have people not showing up. We realise things can interfere, but we kindly ask you to change your RSVP or leave a comment if this is the case. Repeated no-shows without notice will be nominated for removal from the group. Hope to see you all next week though!

Dutch Conversation Night

Aloha - Leiden

It is time once again for a night of practising Dutch and generally being sociable. The schedule: - from 8 till 9 we focus on speaking Dutch. (You are welcome to join and just listen or practice) - from 9 onwards we focus on socializing. You are welcome to still practice your Dutch or speak English and meet new people. The DCN is an informal gathering where you: * can pick up some useful words while you meet new people. * have the chance to practice your Dutch language skills in a friendly environment. * Just want to have a drink? The DCN is mainly a social event. All levels including native Dutch speakers are welcome. Looking forward to seeing you there. This event is also publicised via the Leiden Language Exchange Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/49893697570/
