On Tuesday December 8, Lichtjeavond wil kick-off "De donkere dagen van Delft" (The Dark Days of Delft). What once started as an activity around the ignition of the Christmas tree has grown into one of the largest Christmas events in the Netherlands. This year, due to the circumstances, we celebrate Lichtjesavond in a new way: Lichtjesavond Live and Lichtjesavond thuis (at home).
Tuesday December 8, 7:00 PM
Lichtjesavond Live will be available on Tuesday December the 8th at 7:00 PM. The broadcast will be available on this website and on Tv-station: TV West. The 45-minute broadcast is full of stories ,Music from Delft and takes you through the city center. Together we will commemorate and look forward. Just like the previous years, togetherness and connection will be the main themes.

The boxes will be delivered at home prior to Lichtjesavond or can be picked up in the festive Christmas drive-thru at the Schieweg in Delft.
