How many available spots are there in the concert hall?

There are 72 seats available. Due to the latest COVID measures (26 November) all of our shows are seated at a distance of one and a half meters.

Can I visit two shows in one night?

Yes you can, but you do have to buy two tickets and you will have to enter the building again. Unfortunately it is not possible to stay in the BIMHUIS between two concerts.

What about those timeslots?

The timeslots are here to ensure that everyone can easily keep distance and feels safe. So please do arrive at your designated time. This way your concert visit will be a pleasant experience for everyone.

What if I don't arrive on time?

Well, it happens to the best of us. Unfortunately, if the concert has already started, you can no longer enter. Otherwise, we ask you to wait until everyone is inside and you can sit at the back. But best would be to just arrive on time.

What about the air in the BIMHUIS?

Our air exchange system uses 100% outside air (there’s no circulation).
