A Dutch tradition
Leidens ontzet is an event that commemorates the liberation of Leiden during the Spanish siege and subsequent relief of the city in 1574.
During Leidens Ontzet we get together at the Clubhouse and enjoy a traditional Dutch meal called hutspot, a dish that looks like the stew found in the Spanish troops' camp. Leidens Ontzet is held around the 3rd of October and is one of our popular annual events.
