Eindhoven’s 13th annual GLOW Light Festival is taking place this November and we invite you to join us to stroll through the free light festival together!

The light artworks are connected by a 5 km walking route in the center of Eindhoven. You can check out more about the event here: https://www.gloweindhoven.nl/en

We will meet at Tilburg Station at 18:15 to take the 18:24 Intercity train together. Look for us near the Kiosk shop entrance on Platform 1 (Spoor 1).

Can you help tíc on Twitter?

For the last 2 years, one of our major priorities has been to create a stronger online awareness of our club, events, goals and attractive membership benefits through Twitter. Twitter is one of the best social media platforms to find out what people think about our club and build our club “brand”.

We would love the help of a dedicated “tweeter” for our club.  You can help us by doing any of the following:

  • tweeting 3 – 5 times a week
  • commenting on tweets
  • sharing tweets
  • coordinating themes with our other social media platforms
  • share helpful links and tips with our followers

If you are interested in social media, specifically Twitter, this would be a great opportunity to gain some experience with this tool. And, you would be making a significant contribution to the efforts of our club to expand its membership base as well as communicating in a fun and educational way with expats in Brabant.

If this you’d like to help us out, just fill out the form below to let us know!

Join our Book Club!

Are you up for a good discussion with a group of friendly book-lovers? Would you like to expand your reading horizons by reading a book you may not have chosen yourself? Do you want to spend a relaxed evening chatting about a book, and often many other life topics, with a cup of tea, coffee or perhaps glass of wine in your hand? Join tíc’s Book Club where we meet up approximately once every 6 weeks to discuss the latest book pick by the group.

At the end of every Book Club meeting, one member presents three book suggestions to the group. The group votes on their favorite book choice and the group reads that book for the next book club meeting. Someone from the group volunteers to bring the new book selections for the following meeting. Locations and days of every meeting vary to allow the maximum number of book lovers to attend.

New members are welcome to join our book club at any time.  If you are a member of the tilburg international club, attendance is free.  If you would like to attend as a guest, the cost if 5 euro p.p.

Would you like to join us at our next Book Club meeting?  Let us know!
