The uncertainties of our time challenge us to look for maximum flexibility. We announce the new program on a monthly basis. Keep an eye on our concert program or subscribe to our newsletter to stay tuned.

Harry Potter in Concert
Due to the corona measures, the performances of Harry Potter in Concert in December 2020 at de Doelen must be postponed to 2022. Tickets already purchased remain valid. Together with our partners Warner and CineConcerts, the exact dates have yet to be determined, taking into account the recommendations of the RIVM and the availability of the orchestra and the location. We hope to inform you about the new dates by the end of November.

Ticket scheme: Save your ticket - enjoy later

With ‘Save your ticket, enjoy later’, the cultural industry hopes that ticket holders will attend their favourite venue or event at a later date. The basic principle of the scheme is that the ticket value is retained. If a concert for which you have purchased tickets is cancelled, you will be given the choice to convert the value of tickets into a voucher, donation or refund. This way you can order tickets without any risk. More information about the ticket scheme can be found here.

All concerts originally planned for the 2020|2021 season will be cancelled or postponed. Tickets for concerts from August 21 to December 30, 2020 has converted into vouchers on August 5, 2020. Tickets for concerts from January 7 to May 30, 2021 has converted into vouchers on November 18 and 19, 2020. Ticket buyers have received a voucher by email for the value of their tickets. Have you received a voucher but would you rather have your tickets refunded or converted into a donation? Please contact our customer service.
