The University of Groningen turns 405 this year! And so we’re celebrating from 5 to 15 June 2019. One of the highlights of our anniversary celebrations is the Night of Arts and Science. After an absence of three years, the Night is returning to the city centre of Groningen, which will be bustling with activities again on Saturday 8 June.


From the Academy Building to the Der Aa-Kerk and the Groninger Museum, visitors can enjoy more than 150 acts, including scientific experiments and demonstrations, lectures on this year’s anniversary theme of inclusion, debates, workshops and, of course, a lot of street theatre, cabaret and music.
