On 5 May, the 80,000 visitors to the Liberation Day Festival in The Hague will have the chance to learn about the 444-year-old Leiden University during different interactive activities on the Malieveld and in the House of Representatives.
Come and join us!

There will also be fun activities for the children. Leiden University is also organising pop-up lectures in the House of Representatives (in Dutch) on 5 May on the theme of '100 Years of universal suffrage'.
