Will you be joining us at the Annual Dinner in Zwolle on 16 November?
It will be our first dinner ever on an historic ship. By popular demand, this edition will be a buffet dinner, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to meet and mingle. We’ll also throw in some simple party games to help you break the ice. But one important ingredient won’t change: superb entertainment from SENSE members.
