#FBF tícMovie Night review: Respect

Tilburg International Club Movie NightTonight we’ll meet up for another tícMovie Night. For #FlashbackFriday, here’s a look back at the Pathé movie “Respect”!

x-x-x-x-x-x

review by Yolonda van Riel

17.09.2021. Respect – what I give Jennifer Hudson for taking on the iconic role of Aretha Franklin. It must have been a daunting task to try and emulate the “Queen of Soul” but I can’t imagine anyone else capable of singing all those hits any better (except Aretha, of course!)

A small group of tic movie lovers gathered for the film at Cinecitta and, although our seats were quite close to the front, it was almost like being at a concert. (more…)

ticMovie Night: Ticket to a fun night

ticMovie Night Ticket to Paradisereview by Mala Raman

15 Oct 2022. After quite the hype of the “dream-team” coming back to the theaters, I was curious to see the newest RomCom at the latest tic Friday night movie. An equally curious small group met in the lobby of Pathé to check out the night’s move. We enjoyed chatting a bit and getting acquainted/reacquainted before going into the film.

The Movie

With the no-fail pair of Julie Roberts and George Clooney, our expectations were high…and we were not disappointed! The interplay of sharp barbs and natural chemistry between the 2 co-stars made for seamless delivery of some great one-liners while paving the way for a deeper story line of love, loss, forgiveness and new beginnings.

Overall it was a light-hearted, fun film that left us with a feel-good optimistic ending and a nice way to end the night.

13 Apr 2019. by Essi Koskela. 

Right before noon on Saturday we gathered near the Spoorzone in Tilburg in the hip-looking studio Sooss, which many of us had been hoping to get a reason for to visit. Amazingly, everybody was on time, and after some review of yoga histories, we moved to the cozy classroom on the second floor, just big enough to host the eight of us. (more…)

Guests are Welcome!

Guests are always welcome at #TilburgInternationalClub events. It’s a great way to get a feel for the club, our members and the types of events you can come to expect as a member.  In the past, many of our guests have become members after a full tíc experience!

Many expats feel, even after living in the Netherlands for a longer period of time, never fully welcomed into Dutch society and therefore, never feel an affinity with the culture. A key upside to being a guest of tíc, is getting out to meet locals, learning about the country, better understanding social routines and customs all within a supportive group of individuals and families with like circumstances. Want to know more about attending a tíc event as a guest? (more…)

A great night with the Brabantse Jazz Orchestra at Paradox

TIC Jazz Nightreview by Dietrich Haas

05 Oct 2022. Jazz might not be everybody’s favourite – and yes, it is definitely not mainstream – but it is heaps of fun and definitely once in your life a must-try if you have not visited a concert, yet.

The Orchestra

TIC gave everybody a chance to broaden their musical horizons by organizing a Jazz night at Tilburg’s Paradox with Het Brabantse Jazz Orchestra. This is a proper bigband with almost 20 years stage experience, who performed all the pieces from their latest recording. (more…)

Meet the board! Events Coordinator

Tilburg International Club Events Team

Lily Gonzalez, Events Team

I grew up in the northern part of Mexico (Baja California). Since I was young, I was really interested in other cultures just by listening to people talking in their own language (even though I did not understand a word) or reading books where the story was somewhere in Europe. This gave me the idea that it would be nice to live somewhere outside Mexico, somewhere in Europe.

It was in August 2016 when my dream to live in Europe came true and I had the opportunity to do my Masters in Geo-Information Science at Wageningen University (NL). During my studies, I learned about other cultures, taste traditional dishes from those countries and I discovered more cities in the Netherlands. Moreover, I realized how easy it was to travel to other countries close by and “just like that” I felt in love with the country (although not with its weather but that is another story) and I have lived in the Netherlands since then!
