The Dutch Centre (DC) is a cultural institute to promote and develop Dutch culture and a wide variety of the arts for the enjoyment of current and future generations. The DC is housed in the monumental church building at Austin Friars, a spiritual and cultural beacon in the City of London since 1550. The DC will promote a wide variety of concerts and other live performances, film series and exhibitions by Dutch designers and artists. It will continue to host the Netherlands City Lunches, as well as introducing a new series of lectures and debates about current challenges facing Dutch, British and international audiences alike. Both the hall and the library on the lower level and the church hall on the upper level will serve as a venue for receptions, events and parties and as a centre for meetings and conferences for the business community, the Royal Netherlands Embassy and clubs and associations.
