Farmer's servant Teun is a bit busy on the farm! Laying fresh straw in the stables, picking up eggs, feeding the animals. Luckily he remains very happy underneath and the children can help him. Accompanied by cheerful singing and dancing songs, the work is done on the farm
When he is finally ready, he can tell the children about his favourite calf Leentje, supported by atmospheric, projected illustrations:
Leentje wants to be able to jump as high as on the moon. That's why - with the help of the mole family - she transforms her meadow into a real lunar landscape. Would it really work? Be careful, Leentje, that you don't end up in the wrong place, with all those wells and bumps in your meadow!
A cheerful, interactive show about the farm with an embedded picture book story about the adventures of the curious calf Leentje.

September 2021, BS Talentrijk
Tijl gave two festive, funny and target-oriented performances from his theater bus in our schoolyard; one for the lower school and one for the upper school. He immediately captures the attention of the children and plays right into their hands. In a very professional way he provides a cheerful, interactive performance in which the children participated enthusiastically. In short: success guaranteed if you let Tijl go his way!
July 2021, OBS de Eendracht Apeldoorn
How much the groups 5 - 8 enjoyed your performance! Getting all the kids and teachers involved and letting the kids enjoy themselves! Nicely done with the coronaproof setup with the bus in the square!
May 2021, OBS Piet Hein
The children of groups 4,5 and 6 enjoyed a fantastic performance. Lots of musical variety and lots of interaction.
May 2021, OBS de Dreske
Tijl very enthusiastically provided 3 performances for our school that challenged both preschoolers and upper school in a musical way. The children's reactions showed us that it was a blast for all ages!!!
March 2021, OBS Schengehof
Tijl did a whole morning of performances at our elementary school. All coronaproof, 30min performance per class from his bus. Tijl tuned the content of each show very well to his audience. It was a great success! The kids really enjoyed his interactive, swinging program! Tijl got all the kids dancing. A day full of joy in these crazy times. Highly recommended! The contact beforehand with Tijl was also very smooth. Nothing but positive reactions!
December 2020, Kompas
How the kids and teachers enjoyed the mini-Sintshow! Cosy and cozy. Good for the children and Sinterklaas. Thank you very much!
December 2020, Ark
Great Lots of interaction with children Lots of transmitted enthusiasm Involving the public, including teachers on horseback :) A lot of variety through instruments and singing with and without children. Super cool and lively
December 2020, Zonnewereld
Tijl managed to get over 100 children and their teachers to sing and move for almost an hour. The children were very enthusiastic and the teachers immediately went to see what other shows Tijl has to offer. We are fans!
November 2020, Huchtschool
We're all in the Sinterklaas mood. Tijl has treated our students to cheerful, swinging songs. Tijl looks at the group of children and adapts his performance to that (a la minute). Our pupils have sung, clapped and danced! There was a lot of interaction, the pupils (group 1 to 8) were enthusiastic and the performance ended in a cheerful polonaise! It was a party.
March 2020, Amalia
Children were very enthusiastic. Nice communication beforehand. Flexible and willing to do anything
December 2019, Brinkschool
We thought it was an energetic performance in which the children could join in singing and dancing. It was nice to get into the Christmas mood. Thanks Tijl!
December 2019, Wildeschool
Tijl gave two performances in the week before Christmas at the Mayor de Wildeschool in Schagen. Instead of sitting still, being quiet and watching, it was a big musical feast in which all children were involved. With movement and singing along, everyone was involved and even the teachers were enthusiastically singing along. So.... highly recommended for junior to senior school!
August 2019, Excelsior
In Gelselaar Tijl played a combination of "Maestro, music" and "a royal orchestra". In collaboration with harmony orchestra "Excelsior" Gelselaar. The performance took place in a marquee for the children's morning during the annual summer festival. And a party... that was it! The show really appealed to all children, from the junior to the upper classes. Tijl's inimitable timing, enthusiasm and professionalism ensured that all the children, but also the adults, had their attention from the second onwards and couldn't let go of it. To give just one example, Tijl didn't speak a word for the first fifteen minutes and yet everyone hung on his lips! Brilliant! The collaboration with the orchestra went really well. Very nice was the relaxed contact and communication before the show. Which ensured that the programme went well, even without rehearsing with each other. In short; highly recommended! Especially for orchestras that are looking for a way to get young people enthusiastic about making music. And actually just for everyone who wants to be entertained by a super enthusiastic, driven, professional, musical theatre maker. We are fans!
June 2019, Nobelaer
All children from group 1 to 8 were alternately captivated or actively involved
January 2019, Vollenhoofsch
As an association we would like to pass on this music to our youth. Tijl has completely succeeded in this. Not only the children but also we enjoyed the joy and enthusiasm.
December 2018, Dussen
What a party! In his own unique way, Tijl was given the whole hall; dancing, singing, no one could stay seated during Tijl's catchy sing-alongs. His own repertoire mixed with Christmas classics. Everyone left the hall singing.... Jingle Bells!
November 2018, Kameleon
This time we had chosen for the mini-Sintshow, so Tijl in our own group. No less than 5 shows in one morning for children aged 2.5 to 8 years old. Without exception, the children were very enthusiastic and so were the teachers! Tijl brought a large box full of instruments and with his musicality he was able to fit in well with the needs of the group. Especially the accordion brought a lot of ohhh's. The children enjoyed the sounds. A true musical party, within the intimacy of their own (safe) group, where everyone sang along, danced along, and also learned something about the instruments.
November 2018, Kinderopvang
What have the little (but also the big!!!) Snoopy's enjoyed Tijl. We found it exciting beforehand how Tijl all alone could fascinate such a large group of children, but really no problem! Everybody participated!
November 2018, Inghelosenberghe
Group 1 to 8 enjoyed it immensely. A show where we sang, laughed and danced. Highly recommended! :)
October 2018, Mussenacker
Tijl knows how to get the party mood right! It was a real party at the school
June 2018, Fondamentale
My colleagues and I and especially the kids were super- excited about your performance!
May 2018, Annie
Our kindergarten trip started with the performance 'Alle dagen feest'. With 6 kindergarten groups in the gym. The children were allowed to sing along, dance along, move along, make music, dress up and act. Fantastic what an energy Tijl radiates and what an imagination he has. You don't get the chance to dream away or sit still, because he knows how to captivate the children and the other audience throughout the performance. Highly recommended for a toddler party or if there is something else to celebrate at school.
April 2018, Welluswijs
Tijl started to play and the children looked at him full of expectation. Normally they are never that quiet in the group. ;) What we were very enthusiastic about as pedagogical employees is the interaction Tijl has with the children. He connects to what he sees as what the children like and he gets all the children - even the tough older boys who didn't think it was 'cool' to participate at first - moving. His songs are swinging and lyrically in keeping with the children's perceptions. Some younger children thought the sound was a bit loud at first, but with the safety of the regular leader in the neighbourhood that went well too
March 2018, Kring
The children were well captivated and they liked to move around and sing along. Wonderful to see how you can transform difficult notions into such a fascinating performance in such a simple and understandable way!
February 2018, Sluis
As an afternoon program for our kindergarten trip we were looking for a suitable performance (something with technology, science). We soon came up with 'wat een weertje' , which was exactly right. A nice, interesting performance that let the toddlers enjoy songs from start to finish, educational things about the weather, jokes, music, movement, amazement. Super!
January 2018, Wierig
It was an incredibly fun, educational, interactive performance for the children from group 1 to 8 on the occasion of the opening of the music project at the Wis en Wierig school. Most of the children were very curious about the sounds of the different instruments that were already there, they were quite impressed when it turned out that they played everything. Short information about the origin and genesis of some special instruments was interesting. They listened to each other, sang and danced with each other, measure, rhythm, movement, everything was discussed. That you can also make music without instruments but with your own body the children showed and heard in an excellent way. The joint closing was super fun! With buckets, bottles, balloons all together making music and then during the "Sing and Swirl Song" in polonaise back to their own class!
December 2017, Pcm
It was wonderful to see how Tijl responded to the level of our students. He looks, adapts his actions and builds a party. Every child could be himself and this created a magical Christmas performance!
December 2017, Schakel
Tijl's Christmas performance gave our children and teacher (who retired) an unforgettable morning. The Christmas performance is also very suitable for children from all over the world. The performance is interactive. All children participate! We enjoyed it!
December 2017, Antonius
The children of primary school St. Antonius in Best celebrated a beautiful Christmas with Tijl Damen. The active participation of the pupils was central and they did a great job! The performances were an atmospheric closing of the calendar year 2017.
November 2017, Keurhove
For the second year we had the mini sint show at school. A short but very talkative show for the students. They were allowed to sing and move along with the songs that made a big impression.
October 2017, Rehoboth
We really enjoyed 2 shows for children from group 1-2. Good independent care of stage, light and sound. A lot of variation through different instruments, interaction, movement, dance and stage. Children were regularly involved by moving, shouting, making sounds or participating with an instrument. Great!
July 2017, Goois
Tijl takes a lot of musical instruments with it and gets the whole audience! We enjoyed it and want to end this show next time because it was a big party!
July 2017, Maria
Today we saw a very nice show by Tijl Damen about the farm
July 2017, Beatrixschool
Both the children and the teachers enjoyed the show. How nice that there was so much interaction with the children. The show was very varied so they listened, danced and sang for an hour. Thanks a lot!
April 2017, Spil
During the opening of our children's center, Tijl gave 2 fantastic performances. He succeeded in captivating 450 children musically from start to finish, to let them participate. In addition, Tijl himself is a pleasant personality with a view on children and ......music!
March 2017, Wiekslag
Very clever how you are able to captivate both the youngest and the oldest children throughout the performance.
February 2017, Panda
A varied show with a lot of interaction and variation! The children (and teachers) were captivated from start to finish! Even weeks after the show the children still talk about it...
December 2016, Sterrenbos
Friday before the Christmas holidays Tijl performed at our school. First for the groups 3-4-5 (heard a lot of enthusiastic stories). Then group 6-7-8. Go on. One day before the holidays, 180 students! What a super show! Very interactive and the children were very enthusiastic. Instead of sitting still they all participated
December 2016, Prinsterer
Super musical and captivating to the end.
November 2016, Tafelronde
Tijl really is a people person. A passionate entertainer, who sets the right tone in crowded halls
November 2016, Langewieke
We had to make a painting visible by eating different colours of fruit and vegetables and then rubbing it over canvas with a brush. This way we finally got to see the whole painting. All this was combined with a lot of music, songs and dances. The children watched this performance with great enthusiasm.
October 2016, Margriet
A very nice performance in which the children could participate a lot.
October 2016, Balkbrug
A nice story was told by a man who had received a painting from his uncle. But there was nothing on the painting at all. A number of children were allowed to eat things in a certain colour and when they went over the white painting with a brush, the colour they had eaten would appear. That was very special. There was also a lot of singing and dancing in between.
September 2016, Natuurspeeltuin
Tijl Damen gave a very successful interactive performance at nature playground De Boomhut in Terneuzen on the Day of the Nature Playground on 10 September. With the help of guitar, drum kit and djembe he managed to drag the children into a story in which, among other things, the elements of nature got a role. When it turned out that it was the birthday of one of the children that day, Tijl very skilfully managed to involve the parents of the birthday boy. For a moment it seemed as if the natural playground had been transformed into a fairytale forest, with the children running around the pond with musical instruments after the "king". Tijl knew how to make optimal use of the possibilities of our terrain. The performance was musical, sporty, educational and fun at the same time. The adults also enjoyed the performance to the fullest.
August 2016, Winkidoeweek
After his performance at our 5-year anniversary we invited Tijl again for the party night of our 10th anniversary. What a party! The kids were totally captivated by Tijl's performance. Enjoy for the kids, but also for us!
July 2016, Panta
At scouting Panta Rhei, Tijl performed the performance "every day party". This on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of our group. And a party it was. The children, the leaders and the parents enjoyed it very much and Tijl was able to captivate all those present and to take them into the show by means of several songs and sketches. In the end (almost) everyone was on the floor to participate. Tijl thanks for this nice performance. It has made a positive contribution to the celebration of our 60th anniversary.
July 2016, Vlaswiek
A fun and interactive show. Suitable for groups 1 to 8 in which you can fit an event yourself.
July 2016, Noordseschut

February 2016, vd Heijden
Tijl Damen came to perform at our school in Waalwijk during our carnival party. The kids really enjoyed themselves.

We as a committee, Young Netherlands Se Gietere, the parents and even Sinterklaas were full of praise! And most important: the kids had a great time and all participated :)
October 2015, Kring
It was an interactive performance, in which the children were occasionally quiet, but also often enjoyed moving around. It was a top performance, in which all the children enjoyed themselves enormously and so did we as teachers!
October 2015, Brakken
Great involvement of our groups 3. Very interactive. The children certainly enjoyed the performance. Also as a teacher we enjoyed the performance
October 2015, Frisoschool
A fascinating, interactive performance. A lot of talents are addressed to children during the performance, so that nature/technology/science is offered in a very meaningful way. Thank you very much! It has made us "richer".
October 2015, Nulvier
Because of the 15th anniversary of our childcare NulVier, we had organized a party during which Tijl Damen gave 4 performances. Two performances for the BSO children, one for all toddlers and one for the baby group. Tijl is very active and his shows are really very INTERACTIVE, so the children (and parents) are and remain very involved and all have a lot of fun. Great shows for all ages with a lot of variation in singing with a nice interaction. He also has a nice build up of his own stage appearance
September 2015, Wissel
Thanks to Tijl we had a super nice gig at our neighbourhood school Bubao De Wissel in Puurs (Belgium). The children and the teachers were all enthusiastic. Tijl really had everyone along. Super nice to see all those happy faces!
August 2015, Kindex
Tijl gave a fantastic interactive performance for KindeX in advance. With a group of about 100 children (2-5 years) and ditto parents, Tijl made it a real party. A very cozy, funny and musical start of our summer holiday. Even now, after the holidays, we still get positive reactions to this performance
June 2015, Wandelclub
The golden jubilee party of our walking club DVG, consisting of 46 members with a mental disability and 12 volunteers, was a great success. The highlight of this day was the performance of Tijl! The members were fully involved in the performance of Tijl: making music together, playing king with 2 servants, riding on a hobbyhorse, etc. What a pleasure they all enjoyed! Each in his own way. A great performance for our target group. Their reactions: I liked it very much. It was fun! Was beautiful! When is that gentleman coming again? And so..
January 2015, Ambacht
On the occasion of the fact that our school has become a Kanjerschool, Tijl gave two performances. I attended the performance of the groups 4 to 8. This was a very varied performance, in which the majority had fun and participated.
December 2014, Zuidwester
For us, on daytime activities for multiple complex disabled people, the Christmas show was a cheerful, light-hearted, cozy event. The tree, the magic angel, naked Santa Claus, 2 famous carols and again playing on instruments for those who could. We hope to invite you again.
December 2014, Cambier
The children were involved in the performance in a fun interactive way. They enjoyed your music and the interaction. The staff also enjoyed it very much, thank you!
December 2014, Zorgsaam
The supporting program for the Sintfeest for the children of ZorgSaam employees...and what a supporting program!... The music and songs, the participation of the children and the stimulating talk of Tijl, all top notch.
November 2014, Ottoland
What a party for the children at the soccer club VVAC in Ottoland. All the children were dancing with your show for an hour, they really enjoyed it !
November 2014, Dow
Tijl and Baspiet have once again graced our kids with their show! The kids don't sit still or get bored for a moment. We will definitely book them again for next year and that will be the 3rd year in a row!
November 2014, Vrijwilligersclub
Tijl visited the "Sister and Zo". A super nice afternoon with lots of music, dance and humor. Of course the songs are about Sinterklaas (where does he sleep in the Netherlands? ), homesickness for Spain, peppernuts, scattering etc. A real light show, all kinds of musical instruments, horses (which you can ride, just like Sinterklaas). We love to see/hear Tijl again. His songs and stories are great for young and old
October 2014, Volksdansgroep
The performance of Tijl for our children's group and teen group was great fun! The age difference was huge (from 4 to 12 years!) and yet it was fun for everyone! Class!
October 2014, Grienden
What a great performance! All the children really enjoyed it. Tijl really takes the kids into the party of music and books. Children can join in and move around
