The idea behind TilburgCastle

Ciss de jong, initiator of this event

After I saw the Netflix series Squid Games, I was inspired by the thought that young people and adults should play more. To me, Japanese shows like Takeshi’s Castle, Wipe-Out (which was inspired by Takeshi’s Castle), or even Dutch shows like “Ter Land, Ter Zee, en in De Lucht” are amazing to watch. It’s funny, and people are moving. I wanted to do something like that in Tilburg. In Squid Games, I thought it was a cool idea that people could pay their debts by participating. That’s kind of what we have done – we’ve been building a debt by sitting around inside and moving less lately. By participating in this event, your balance can be restored.
It’s going to be an awesome day!
